Joe’s Best Bird Photos


This week’s photo, taken in 2009 in Mexico, features a juvenile COOPER’S HAWK. Although I haven’t used this image in a previous blog posting, it’s one of my favorite shots.

If you wish to view and/or purchase cards or prints of my 24 best bird photos, go to:

Although I work without a tripod, I often rest my 400mm telephoto lens on a bench, a fence, a branch, against a tree trunk, or any other stationary object I can find to keep the camera and lens as steady as possible. Photographing birds can be very difficult, but I have always liked a good challenge. Things go wrong far more often than they go right. Yet, occasionally, it all comes together nicely, and when it does, it makes all the effort worthwhile.

Since 2008, I have taken tens of thousands of bird photos, and on the Fine Art America site I have gathered my best images (so far), as judged by a select committee of one (me).
