Hi Herb, My name is Joe Piluso and I am a friend of Wes Farmer. Wes sent me the link to your site. Amazing and fantastic photos. I need to find time to view more of them. I am so jealous of all the great places you have been able to visit over the years. Keep on trekking! And keep the great photos coming!

Hello herb my name is edna and i just think you have a wonderful collections of such beautiful birds. I just began bird watching and honestly 10yrs ago I wouldn't believe I'm doing it.I come to your page because you have so many different species and my backyard is filled with so many different kinds. Not that its a mistake but I didn't realize putting down so much wild feed would bring in birds of all kinds even those that are loud and getting into our garden. Well lesson learned thank you for allowing us to enjoy your gallery

Hi, I keep spotting what appears to be an American Bald Eagle in the Marsh Area. It generally sits on a post near the tracks. I was wondering if you had also seen it? Is this something rare? Thanks Craig

You are very talented, dedicated and personable.
I learned about views for taking pictures just from viewing ALL of your pictures! And I do have favorites. Just beautiful.
Thank you.
julie 10-Jun-2008 12:57
Herb, I live in the tx panhandle area and over this weekend 6 swans and a strange beautiful bird showed up at the small lake in our medical center where I work. I was looking for the kind of bird it is you have posted a picture of the mysterios bird. However, it wasn't identified. The picture in question was posted 3-3-08 at 4:20am. Red eyes, with the long "whispet" (?) of a long single feather off to the side. Do you know what kind of bird this may be? Thanks
Treas01-Apr-2008 05:06
Herb, I loved your shot in the Show and Tell Water Reflections.

Debra Lee Baldwin 21-Nov-2007 07:11
Your work is breathtaking. It reminds me of what the word "photography" means: writing with light. Your galleries are a real treat. It's hard to pick a favorite shot, but one that made me gasp is the translucent green wave with the silhouetted seals. You have a remarkable eye for beauty, and consummate skill with a camera. -- Debra Lee Baldwin

Herbert, your truly beautiful picture at

the galleries to find it and similar ones. Could you start attaching a link to your
Show & Tell photos? Again, a wonderful image - rather magical.

Glad you found my Sierra shots. I've been enjoying your train and other shots for quite a while. This was my first time up to the eastern Sierra this time of year - now have got to cme up with an excuse for next year. I really like the shot of the lake and trees on the cliff. (Saw that one in two places and wondered if it was coincidence - two guys found the same great place and lighting then matched the names.

Thanks for your comment on my flamingo(s). I enjoyed your coast gallery, particularly some of the birds; "IMG_5223 coast_a.jpg" is a special favorite. Maybe you could replace some of the image names like that with more descriptive ones, for example ones that would tell bird-dummies like me what kind of bird it is in the shot.
Guest 19-Aug-2006 22:52

Hi Herb; In regards to Ryan and the terns, the terns were added to the photo using photoshop with extraction and layers to add the two birds. I posed Ryan just for this purpose. If we really fed the birds, I would risk fine and jail. Even though the terns are not afraid of people, they only eat seafood. Al Lee. PS. It was fun.

Awesome! Ron could not stop raving about your photographs, especially the birds in flight. We might head down to the beach to see if Nikie gets her squirrel today. No need to take my camera now that I have seen your photos!
We expect we will visit your site many times.

Gday Herbert, thanks for stopping by my PAD gallery. I see your from San Diego, one of my favorite American cities (albeit that I have only spent a few nights there). Some of your shots are amazing, but I particularly like some of your beach/ocean shots, eg IMG_6632 coast.jpg and IMG_5200eac.jpg are great examples. And IMG_4744.JPG for something really unique and well done. Cheers. Simon
Guest 15-Dec-2005 14:49

Guest 02-Feb-2005 04:38
Thanks for the comments in my Pad Gallery . I live in OC so when I decide on what lens I want to get next I will have to hit the WAP or the zoo with you . You have some impressive shots too. Keep it up!

Thanks Joey
Cindy R. 25-Jan-2005 16:19

Guest 15-Jan-2005 16:31
Excellent gallery! Keep up the great work. I hope to be taking pictures like you in the near future.
Gabriele Hasslacher14-Jan-2005 12:10
Hallo Herbert!
Wonderful galleries!
It's a real pleasure to go through them!
I am wondering how you get all the brilliant shots of birds in flight and other animals in movement... I am sure it is not only patience.
From your German name and knowledge you must originally be from Europe?

My very best regards
Linda Willets07-Jan-2005 04:59

Jeffery Stahlman07-Dec-2004 02:30
Well done! Your work speaks volumes. I really like the "birds".
Guest 05-Dec-2004 19:43
Herbert - I especially love your bird photos but all of your photography is excellent.
Shelley O'Connell27-Nov-2004 18:33

Thank you for the comment on my woodpeckers. This was one of my first attempts at birds other than seagulls who conveniently 'pose'. Your bird photos are spectacular especially the hummingbirds and I imagine it takes an enormous amount of patience to capture them, I know it did to take just the few I took of a very this very large woodpecker.

Guest 26-Nov-2004 00:27
Most people on pbase have either a very specific set of galleries (all animals, for example,) and some have a huge spectrum. Yours is an interesting middle ground, conspicuous for it's near total absence of shots people. There is no shortage of warmpth and emotion in all the pics you take of everything you see and love, however, and I'll take that with me as a good lesson.
Take care,
Guest 16-Nov-2004 18:58
Thank you for looking at my Jasper sunset picture. You have some nice shots. I know what you mean about learning this digital stuff. I have been at it for two years with my DSLR and another year before that with a fixed lens NC9500.
Louise Hamelin12-Nov-2004 01:56
Thank you for your kind comment on my San Diego gallery.
Although photography is relatively new in my life, it has been a sure companion (LOL) and a wondeful way of staying in touch with my children, family and friends.
I simply love it. I also had a look at your galleries and did enjoy many of them.
I'll be back. Your Birds Gallery got my vote ;-) Thanks. Louise
markvm11-Nov-2004 15:14

Great work, I enjoyed your galleries very much. Makes me want to go down to the beach and shoot some, which I may this coming weekend as am going to the Hummingbird celebration in Rockport, Texas. We only get to see about 3 species here so I envy you, at first I thought you were in Costa Rica, not California. Good luck with your shooting, Will Rountree

Hi Herbert,

Thank you for the comment on my dinghy shot. After looking just now at your galleries, I consider it an honor that you'd give me a compliment. You're a great photographer and now part of my favorite artist's ( 2nd one I've added). I just started in digital photography and am finding it to be lots of fun and also a challenge.

Guest 20-Aug-2004 18:39
breathtakingly inspiring. each one a gem for crispness and composition. congratulations and please keep us posted.

Hi Herbert!
As you were kindly asking: my tour was a roundtrip through Lower Austria. Wienerwald, Traisental, Ochssattel, Rohrersattel, Hals and back via the A2.
These are some small roads (except the A2), not very famous but lovely for a 250 km-trip on a hot afternoon.
At this occassion I want to tell you how much I like your pictures! Great ideas, great work!
Best regards from Vienna, Austria
Valeska23-Jul-2004 04:58

Terrific photos. Looking at the birds felt like an ornithology test. I wish you'd identify them. We don't have all those birds here in Texas!
Gabriele Willig13-Jun-2004 13:26
Hallo Herbert,
