Kenn & his wife Temple are dedicated bird & nature photographers. Their work is becoming well known in the photographic world and I asked them to share a few of their images with us. Most or the bird-life in our area is notoriously difficult to photograph as they dont seem to like humans being in their domain. I have for some time been on the photographic trail of a family of native New Zealand Hawks, but to no avail. The closet I get is a couple of hundred meters and then they are off, so this makes me somewhat envious of Kenn and Temples' work.
This from Kenn & Temple :
We are Kenn and Temple, backyard birders in St.Louis Missouri USA. We've enjoyed attracting native songbirds to our yard for many years, and began photographing them in 2007 when we had our first mating pair of Eastern Bluebirds. Since then, we have hosted 14 Bluebird nestings and successfully fledged 62 baby Bluebirds from our backyard nestbox. But we're not only about Bluebirds of course. Along the way we've photographed 69 species of songbirds in our backyard habitat and have shared many thousands of photos of them in our Smugmug galleries.
You will find a large collection of excellent photos in their albums at Smugmug including an album devoted to images shot using the Fuji Finepix s100fs a well known and respected camera. Below are a few of my favourites, I'm sure there will be others that you will enjoy viewing as well.
My thanks to Kenn & Temple for allowing us to feature their work.
