40 Beautiful Examples of Bird Photography

August 20th, 2010

Bird photography is one of the most challenging types of nature photography. Since the subject is usually small, may not stay still, moves rapidly from branch to branch, sits in less than favorable lighting conditions and is extremely aware of an approaching photographer. So bird photography can be frustrating as well as rewarding. In this showcase we have collected 40 beautiful examples of bird photography.
