Birds

†††††††††††††††I make no claim to being a bird photographer -- that is a specialty engaged in by a number
†††††††††††††††of well-equipped enthusiasts who are doing excellent work. But I do like birds -- I started
†††††††††††††††with them many years ago in the rain forests of SE Asia and still have boxes of slides
†††††††††††††††waiting to be scanned. (some day...)

†††††††††††††††I donít carry a tripod in the field, so Iím normally not equipped to photograph birds when
†††††††††††††††I'm working on bugs, herps or plants, so while I donít chase birds, if a good one shows
†††††††††††††††up Iíll grab a hand-held shot if I can. I particularly like shots of birds in
†††††††††††††††flight, as well as those that reveal something about birds' lives.
