Have just found your site. Great pics of birds especially of Kenya from which I have just returned. Will add you to my fav list.
Really enjoyed your Photography!!
Amazing the colorful birds you have captured.
I just saw your Arctic Skua photos through a link on the Pacific Seabird Group listserve. They are fantastic. I would very much like to use 3 of them for teaching - my Ornithology and Marine Bird Ecology courses at the U. of New Brunswick in Canada - and wonder if you might make usable JPEGs available for that purpose? With due acknowledgement of course. They are stunning, and show both aerobatic skill and moult pattern beautifully.
We met at the botanical gardens in December last year.Just to say fantastic images.I wish the digital equipment was about when I started photographing birds in 1954.Keep churning them out!!!!

These are great photo's. Is this your full time work?
We recently met Marisol when she was in Cebu. She's a vary nice lady, full of fun. She's the one that provide me with the link to this sight.

I am George Hubert Petol from the Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok. I am in charge of all interpretive indoor and outdoor posters at the centre.
I would to like have your permission to use a few of your bird pics for a new series of outdoor posters on birds. I haven't decided which ones yet.
If you don't already know. the RDC is an environmental education facility that is opened to visitors. We plan to have the RDC self-financing by 2011 onwards. If this happens, the RDC will be the first government-run nature/education centre that is self-financing.
Hope to have a favourable reply from you soon.
Thanks and happy shooting!!
Hi Larry, I'm originally from the States.
Con, disregard part of my previous dumb question. I realize that you have the camera and lens info posted with each photo, sorry.
Con, I'm sure you have been asked this question many times, but what type of camera & lenses do you use. Your photos are fantastic! Where are you from originally?
Hi Larry, sorry I don't know, I was visiting Australia, I'm not familiar with the flora.
Con, can you tell me what specie of water lilly is in the photo of the two green pygmy geese resting on a lilly pad?
Yes, certainly that would be fine :-)
Love all your bird pictures. Would it be allright to use some for painting???
I met you at Fogg Dam a couple of weeks ago. You and your friends were photographing a Rainbow Pitta and I joined in. I hope you got some great shots from this session.
Fantastic collection! Excellent photos.
Pleas your e-mail adress.
Wonderful site with many crisp shots of colorful and (for NAs) exotic critters.
Thanks for sharing.

I hope you do not mind me contacting you but in searching the internet for images of the red-crowned barbet, Megalaima rafflesii, I found a number of your images on your PBase site which I would be interested in using for ARKive, if you would like to become involved.
ARKive - www.arkive.org - is a unique conservation initiative.
Films, photographs and audio recordings of the worlds animals, plants and fungi are being gathered into one centralised digital library. To date we have created digital multi-media profiles for some 3000 species, digitising and storing more than 20,000 still images and over 60 hours of moving footage. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available via the ARKive website.
I can attach some more detailed documentation that will tell you a lot more about the ARKive project if you would like. However, in summary:
It is ARKive's current primary aim to compile audio-visual records for the 16,000-plus species currently threatened with extinction, according to the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.
We are looking for media (moving footage, still images, audio) to depict each species' life history as comprehensively as possible. In order for us to achieve this aim we need help from as wide a variety of donors as possible and would like to be able to add you to our list of contributors.
The ARKive website acts as a showcase for image providers, displaying copyright and contact details with every image and links to each media donor's own web activities.
See examples of species which have been ARKived at www.arkive.org.
The team here at ARKive are constantly on the look-out for images of endangered species so please do let me know if you would like to contribute any other photographs of threatened species to ARKive, or if you have any queries. I am contactable on the email address below.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Dr Mairead Maclean
ARKive Media Researcher
"Over the past few decades a vast treasury of wildlife images has been steadily accumulating, yet no one has known its full extent - or its gaps - and no one has had a comprehensive way of gaining access to it. ARKive will put that right. It will become an invaluable tool for all concerned with the well-being of the natural world.
Sir David Attenborough
"ARKive is a noble project, one of the most valuable in all of biology and conservation practice. It has whatever support I am able to give it."

Simply bowl over by your bird photos. Hope you publish a book on your patient and wonderful work.
Don't seem many of these sorts off Route 71, do you? Not even a tufted Jim Jorgensen...
The pictures of the rail babbler are out of this world.Did you used a hide?
Nice gallery. Was googeling for Panti Forest and directly hit your page!
you need to make a book with your collection of beautiful birds...
share it through a coffee table book......
This is a beautiful gallery Con
Interesting pictures. Looked at most of them including those of the shoes. I suppose I shall add your webpage to my bookmarks and keep coming back.
Thanks Marisol for viewing my Osprey series.
Very nice collection especially your beautiful bird photos.
