Hi Janet,
With the exceptional quality of your work, especially with birds, You have probably gotten this question a 1000 times. For your bird stills, do you shoot primarily hand held or on a tripod? I currently do pretty well with a 100-400L IS hand held, but I think I could do better with a 400 5.6 without IS if I can hand hold it steady enough. Your thoughts and experience with 400 5.6 would be greatly appreciated. Wally

You have some lovely photos, especially the many duck species. I don't know how in the world you get so close to many of them, especially the Hooded Mergansers. Perhaps they are more approachable when they are breeding up North, but I can't get within 100 feet of one when they winter down in NJ.
Guest 24-Dec-2011 19:49
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your family.

Janet Terrific galleries. I am glad I stopped by.

Hi Janet-
Thanks for sharing your photos. I am using the canon 400mm 5.6 lens because of your great photos and am very happy with it.
Keep up the Great Work!
Jacob Padrul03-Mar-2010 18:29
You are my inspiration. I am deciding which lens to buy, Canon 400mm or 100-400 and I have been looking for examples of both on this site. I can recognize your photos even without looking at the name. They are so well thought out, composed and so professionally executed… Did I say about the image quality (not only sharpness)? I am now leaning towards 400mm L prime, although I perfectly understand that it is not the lens/camera but the photographer
Julien Brisson21-Jan-2010 19:27
Hello Janet, this is a great gallery !

I like your photos of birds specially the herons.

Hi Janet,
I am a conservation biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and I work specifically with partner organizations to conserve shorebirds and seabirds in Florida.

I am putting together a monitoring protocol for our partners which has ID tips for the different species in FL, and I need a pic of a Killdeer chick. Would it be possible to use your photo in our materials- credits will be included?
Rosemarie Kusserow10-Jul-2009 09:42

Guest 09-Jan-2009 01:26
Hi Janet-Thanks for your always kind words about my Yellow-rumped warbler image. I was at the bay in New Jersey photographing Harquelin ducks and on my way back to the car I stumbled upon a small flock of very cooperative Yellow rumps. Do you have any Snowy's up your way? That's my target bird this winter. Are you a Nikon shooter? I have an excellent condition Nikon 500mm F4 lens for sale.
Happy New Year

Guest 19-Apr-2008 01:36
Hello Janet, You take awesome pictures! I will be getting a Canon 400mm f/5.6L in a few weeks and a Canon 40D, your pictures, the sharpness of them, helped make my decision as I was torn betwen the I was torn with getting the Canon 100-400mm. I will be upgrading from a Sony Cybershot H5 which is great for the consumer, but I want to go pro some day. Do you use tripod a lot with a remote switch? just curious.
fraser family 11-Apr-2008 21:17

Hi Janet--you have done some really beautiful close-up portraits of birds with the 400. I don't know how you do it. Are you a bird whisperer?

osprey28-Sep-2006 23:51
The best part about your wild life photography is that you get very close to your subjects without disturbing them. All birds look relaxed, behaving in the most natural way.
Jack Forjan 27-Sep-2006 01:14

Hi Janet

You have some great shots. I also live in Dundas and enjoy the many great trails in our community. Some day we may cross paths as we stalk the wildlife with our cameras.

It is not only amazing how good your pictures are, but also the quantitiy of such good pictures.
Guest 02-Apr-2006 22:08
Janet, thanks for swinging by my site. You have quite an impressive site yourself - great variety. Very unique macro work especially. Yet it's also nice to see somebody who appreciates creatures as "common" as snails, starlings, and seagulls.
Mario Weusten31-Mar-2006 18:03
You have a very great collection .
Ton, Ben & Rob Nagtegaal08-Mar-2006 06:52

Regards Rob
Joan Bush 07-Mar-2006 20:25
Hello Janet,
What beautiful work!
I am considering the Canon EF400mm lens as an addition to my photo gear.
Do you use the lens hand held or do you place it on a tripod to achieve your beautiful bird photos?
Garrett Lau07-Mar-2006 06:10
Thanks for the nice comments on my bird photos. Yours are great, too. I especially like the bluejays and cardinals, as we don't have those in California.
Max Grigg 27-Feb-2006 17:47
Excellent work Janet. I am learning a lot just by looking at your photographs.

Guest 23-Jan-2006 20:59
Hi Janet,
Thank you for stopping at my galleries. Your collection of bird and bug galleries are out of sight. I have bookmarked your galleries so that I can come back and enjoy them often. I have noted your F-stop and exposure values on your bug pictures and they will help me to take some better bug pictures. Keep up the good work. George
Richard Calmes20-Nov-2005 01:27

You capture the life in all the pictures that you take, I am so impressed! Henry was too. Every since his modelling debut, I have been trying to keep his ego in check. My favorite picture (other than Henry) is the family shot. I am excited to see the new additions as they come!
