A Showcase of Beautiful Bird Photography

Advertisement

Nature photography is often more beautiful than photography featuring manmade subjects, as it presents us with the beautiful randomness of the world around us. Some of the most stunning creatures within nature are birds. With around 10,000 species of birds, bird photography presents us with an endless variation of colors, patterns and visuals.

Bird photography is particularly impressive because of the speed and agility of birds. Finding the perfect moment to capture their exquisite details can be near impossible. Bird photographers often have to wait hours for the perfect shot, so it takes plenty of patience!

Below is a showcase of beautiful photography featuring birds. We recommend that you check out each photographer’s portfolio as they have some wonderful work.

    Birds can be very hard to get up close and photograph, but all of these just scream, “WOW!”. My favorite was the Duck Tears, but I also liked the owl one. Thank you, Tom, for putting these together!

    • Tom Ross, 07 March 2012

      You’re welcome Maria! I agree about birds being hard to photograph, from my own personal attempts I realize how truly impressive these examples are. It takes a lot of skill and patience that’s for sure!

  • Kevin, 28 February 2012

    Yes, owl is awesome =) It is so bright and clear! I also like a Mid Flight by Roeselien Raimond (the last photo). It would be a great illustration to the Jonathan Livingston Seagull, written by Richard Bach. Thanks, Tom, for these moments of life!

    • Tom Ross, 07 March 2012

      I love how piercing the owl’s eyes are :). I haven’t read that, but I’ll certainly keep an eye out. I’m glad you enjoyed the post Kevin!

    awesome birds….

  • Mindy C. Jones, 18 August 2012

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU for crediting and linking to the artists. The Pinterest effect seems to be turning the web into a giant trashpile of images without context or creators, which makes me sad. You are the exception that should be the rule!
