Canon EOS 20D, 40D, 60D, and 5D Mark III cameras with a 500 mm f4 IS USM lens were used for many telephoto images.
A 1.4X extender and/or extension tubes were added as needed. Many images were also taken with Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 IS USM and
Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro lenses. For landscapes, birders, and some birds, I use a Sony Cyber-shot DSC 828 DSLR camera
with a fixed 28-200mm Zeiss zoom lens.

Birds on this site, except those in North American Places, are those I have seen in the Carolinas. All photos were
taken by me except for a very few images of me. At least 85% of my photos were taken in the Carolinas and those
taken outside the Carolinas are placemarkers waiting to be replaced by subsequent shots of mine taken in the Carolinas.
Bird images displayed on North American Places slides were taken by me at those sites or nearby sites in the same state.
