My Flickr stream is where I share my favorite photos. I started out as a birder in 1974 or so. Eventually I became a birder with a camera. Presently, I think of myself as a photographer who specializes in birds. However, I love to photograph all “Creatures Great and Small” and all living things. I have a special love of hummingbirds and hummingbird photography. I must admit that bugs and macrophotography fascinate me too.

 

Please be kind to our beautiful planet and to the animals that share our world.

 

Eric

Dear Eric, Reading a comment from you , to a photo of Gabriel Moreira, I decided to visit your portfolio, which is really absolutely outstanding! Going through the several statements, we have a real picture of you and Rob´s one is really a cherry on the top of the cake! For me it is clear, you are a MUST to follow on Flickr! I am sure I will enjoy the travel and will learn a lot with you! It looks you recently changed your equipment, (Canon to Sony), I would appreciate if you could elaborate a little bit about that, reason, motivation, results! I hope to count on you, for your visits and comments, which would be very much appreciated. I am a new comer on birds community and enjoying very much! Best Regards, Luiz

I say it all the time...I'm in awe of his talent and mastery of wildlife and landscape photography. It's a joy to view his work and an honor to have him as a friend.

I am biased right off the bat here because he is my uncle, but he is one of the most gifted artists and knowledgeable birders I know. As a veterinarian he provides knowledge of anatomy and flight mechanics and as an active birder for over 25 years he has great knowledge of birds, from their songs to their habits/behavior to their favored habitats. As a photographer there is no end to his passion,which is incredibly contagious. His recent interest in macro photography has only fueled the flames and I am constantly amazed by what he finds. His bird carvings are exquisitely detailed and accurate and his skill as a painter translates into how he mentally composes and puts thought into his photographs before he ever presses the shutter. Eric shares his knowledge with others openly, provides honest and valuable critiques, and wants to learn as much from others as he can. He is fast to make friends and knows more jokes than anyone I have ever known (though not all of them are really worth remembering). I thoroughly enjoy every time we get together and I always seem to get better photos when I'm with him. If you joined Flickr to share knowledge, get/give critiques, and make friends then you won't find anyone better than Eric.
