I am a Park Ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I have been searching through your photos and they are excellent! I have been trying to put together a program to educate kids about different types of animals and was hoping to get permission to use some of your photos for the presentation. I have no intentions of selling anything, reproducing, making copies to give out, etc. It is simply a power point presentation on my computer that I carry with me to schools or to nature hikes that we guide for kids to be able to get a little closer look and get them interested in the outdoors. If you are interested in letting me use your photos or would like more information, please email me.

Thanks for your time,

Hi Mark,
They are both great cameras. The main advantage of the 20D is that taking pictures is mush faster - faster turn-on, faster writing to mem card, faster continous shooting. This is great for shooting birds. The 20D is also great in low-light as it can go up to ISO 3200.

Great photos you've taken. I noticed that you used both the Canon EOS 300 Digital Rebel and the Canon EOS 20D. I'm currently trying to decide between the two and would very much appreciate it if you could tell me what you think of each one in hopes of helping me come to a decision. Thanks in advance!!! Mark

I came across this site by accident - it seems there are more of us than I thought!

Nice to meet another Rob Pavey! I've seen you pop up on Google a few times through your Augusta Chronicle work.

I actually took these photo's by handholding the s400 to the eye piece of the scope. I'm not aware of any commercially available solutions but I have a friend who has made an adaptor using some filters and piping

Hello Rob,
I came across your website and I am amazed to see all your great work and really appreciate it. Keep up the good job. I have a question on the Canon S400 since I have the same digital camera. For a while I had been wanting to attach a spotting scope to the camera and do you have any suggestions on what adapter to get for the s400 and also if you have a suggestion for what spotting scope would you suggest? Thank you in advance.

hi rob,
believe it or not, I am Rob Pavey, too. I'm the outdoors editor for The Augusta Chronicle, Georgia's second-largest daily, and I was trying to help one of my photographers ID a photo, thought to be an egret, so of course I went online to find some egret photos to compare his to. I went to Yahoo and typed in "egret photos" and ended up on your site. You can imagine how surprised I was to see a Rob Pavey photo credit! Anyway, it's a great site. My work is on but I also have a personal site for my antique fishing tackle collection and also a separate site for my book
take care,

Hi Rob,
I saw your URL in your Christmas newsletter. Thanks to you both for sending it.
The photographs here in pbase are great. Keep up the good work and drop me a
note sometime.

I like your bird shots very much, especially the black swans. I have never seen one before. My daughter says she has seen them at the Hyatt in Aruba, where they are supposedly the only ones on the island.

You have an amazing collection of bird photos! I didn't realize there were so many great birding spots in the Bay Area. I've just been going to Charleston Slough. I have a few bird photos in my pbase gallery, taken with my 10D. I've noticed that the quality of your photos dramatically improved with your Digital Rebel. --Garrett

Hi Rob, Nice photos! I'd like to reproduce one of the phainopepla images on a park brochure, with your permission. Please email me, Joanie.

Mr. Pavey, My 13 year old son is interested in drawing one of your pheasants to enter in an art contest. How does he obtain permission?

Rob, if you get this please email me. I don't know how to contact you otherwise.
