What do I need to do to get permission to use some of your photos? We are working on new signs for an ongoing interpretive display here at New Hampshire Audubon which features six live raptors. Your picture would be a part of the informational signs out front. Please let me know if this is possible and how I would go about doing it.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Beautiful experience.

HI neighbor, Saratoga here. My oldest child was born at Stanford. Remarkable pictures and galleries you've shared with us. Your bio sounds like a Canon commercial (lol). Great equipment and investment. Enjoy your hobby for years to come.
Steve F. 30-Jul-2011 02:17
Tom, you've really captured some fine images of falcons. Your photos of the gyrfalcon are truly matchless. The kestrel on the wire, cocking his head, is really neat, too. Do you sell prints?
Bruce Johnson17-May-2011 20:30
Wow you sure do a wonderfull job--I love all your pictures especially the birds--im also from the bay area and now live at lake Oroville. I would like to know what kind of flash you use for the humming birds-you mentioned a high speed flash. I do birds every day up here and could sure use a better flash.
Laurie S 08-Mar-2011 01:39
I happened to stumble upon your page by clicking the beautiful picture that you posted of Steller's Sea Eagles. I am amazed by the beauty and expression you capture. Thank you for sharing them.

Wonderful photos! But where are the mammals?
Ellen 12-Feb-2011 21:24

Hi Tom, great photos. I especially like the flycatcher series. In addition to birds and mammals, don't forget about mayflies and trout!

It was pleasant traveling and talking to you on our flight to Quito last Friday. I hope that the Tungurahua volcano eruption does not interfere with your photography in the Andes. I just opened one gallery and your photos are superb and I shall spend a lot of time in the future going through your enormous collection of birds.

Tom, I was totally taken with your bald eagle album. I could hardly pick a favorite as they were virtually all superb! You have familiarized yourself well with your subject in each album and you are on my favorites list!
Guest 08-Mar-2007 07:39
Impressive I must say.

Tom, your work is wonderful! I'm impressed and think it is great you have continued this project. Nature is very humbling, and you have captured some beautiful images here to remind us of a world we don't see often enough. I can't say I'm surprised, I would expect you pursue most things in your life with passion. Keep it up!

Hi, Tom,
I am so envious of your trips to photographs all those lovely birds. You have a nice collection here. I'll definitely check in more often. Hope to see you and Joan one of these days.

Hi Tom -- That looks like a great trip to Texas -- congrats on the photos! Brings back memories of my own trip to the Gulf in April of 2003, when I was still digiscoping. I too was especially struck by one of your Roseate Spoonbills and the male Hooded Warbler. Tom G
Jeanelle Richardson 06-May-2006 23:28
Tom and Joan,
I've relived our trip to High Island, TX, through your wonderful photos! Of course, I got sidetracked looking at all your collections and enjoyed those as well. You got some great shots of the Spoonbills and baby Great Egrets at the rookery. And that Hooded Warbler! Hope you sent one to Victor as it is his favorite bird. I'm really impressed with your patience, especially for all those little guys that don't sit still. Keep up the good work . May you and Joan have many more enjoyable trips. Jeanelle
Alida Thorpe04-May-2006 20:03

Hi Tom,
Thank you and Joan for a lovely lunch and trip back from our field trip. I enjoyed getting to know you both a bit better and now I am going to enjoy plunging into your photos. Best, Robin
Guest 25-Jan-2006 15:25
Hi Tom,
Fortunately I got a good look at the sandhill cranes in New Mexico. I still would like some shots of them displaying. Thanks for the info. I was at Merced in Dec. Love your long-eared owls.
