Your Bio

Dear Family, Friends, fellow Birders & Photography Lovers,

Here is a Sampling of some of my Photographs, the majority of which are of Birds, as Birding is one of my Passions... There are a few Really Good Ones, but they are in No way near the Caliber of Photographs on the Birds Community... If you Love Birds, you should Check these Guys out, They are INCREDIBLE!!!
http://www.smugmug.com/community/Birds -

You will also find Photos of Architectural Subjects and of the Arts & Crafts Movement (two more of my Passions...), Archaeological Sites, Art, Butterflies & Moths, Furniture & Pottery, Insects, Animals (Wild & Domesticated), Reptiles & Turtles, Flowers & Plants, Trees, and a handful of others... I try to Photograph Anything that "Grabs my Attention" or that simply "Makes me Happy", and with me, the Sky's the Limit!!!

I will be Adding to my Galleries every week, so Please do Check back, there's no telling what you might See... Also, Please do Feel Free to Leave a Comment on my Photos if you'd Like, I would Love to know what you Think about what I've done so far!!! Lastly, if you have Any Comments, Advice or Observations about my Photography Skills (or Lack thereof...) or about Birds & Birding and you'd like to Contact me Directly, Please E-mail me at: - jonathanbpons@yahoo.com - I would be Happy to Hear from you!!!

All of my Photos were Shot with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi; a Canon EOS Digital 40D; or a Canon EOS Digital 7D using: a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens; a Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Super Telephoto Lens; a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens or a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens ...

Currently, I Shoot Freehand, so Any Really Good Photos that I have are by Shear Dumb Luck!!! I do have to admit though, that I am finally beginning to see the usefulness of Tripods and Monopods, so my Photos Should Improve over time, or At Least I Hope They Will...

Anyway... I Hope that you Enjoy my Photos, Thank You for Looking and Please do Check Back!!! Please Take Care and the Best of Birding (and Life) to You All!!!

Yours,
Jonathan B. Pons
