These are shots of birds I've taken while in China on tiger conservation expeditions. Most are of the red-crowned crane, up in the Zhalong Reserve. They are some of my oldest DSLR bird photographs, and alas, were taken during a very narrow window-of-opportunity (in full sun, hence the struggleagainst blown highlights). I've recently re-edited these crane photos to offset my old enthusiasm for saturated images.


I'd love to return some day and put in some good early morning shooting of the different bird species there.
