My father passed along his love of birds and birdwatching to me long ago. He gave me many pairs of binoculars and helped me purchase my first big lens several years ago. With this lens I began to stalk the birds and gather many photographs. Once again, my mother saw these pictures and turned them into a book. This project is the closest to my heart to date, and was the best thanks I could give to my father for helping me on this path. My favorite spread from Wild Wings is Heron in the Grass. I shot it on a trip with my wife to the Everglades, repeating a trip I had taken almost 20 years earlier with my father.
