Timothy Reeves - photo by Sherrie's Photography

My philosophy of bird photography is to photograph as many species as possible in as many places as possible. I have always been interested in birds and have photographed them, on and off, for most of my life. (I developed my interest in birds in the second grade when my teacher, Hazel Thompkins, suggested that we students collect old bird nests over the Christmas holidays as an introduction to nature.) I use Canon Digital cameras and professional EF lenses. I used a 500 mm Canon EF autofocus lens to take most of the photos in the Permanent Collection. This is heavy equipment so I always use a tripod.
