Photographing birds is the most rewarding type of photography for me. I like the stalking and the closeness to nature. While I am on a shoot sometimes I stop taking pictures and sit back and watch the birds interact with their environment.
This picture “Black-necked Stilt with Reflection” was captured at the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge outside of Titusville, Florida. Across the tidal pools is the NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center.
The equipment I use photographing this bird was a Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 600mm L lens with IS, Gitzo Tripod with a Wimberley Gimbal Head.
