Great book! 28 July 2014
By thomas c barillier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I saw a show several years ago in a Santa Monica, California gallery of Mr. Tekulsky’s work and have followed him through his website for years. When you look at the images in this book, the first thing that stands out is his relationship with the birds. He has been able to capture not only the image of the bird, but the living being of these winged friends. Simply look at the images on pages 50, 103, and 122, and you will understand what I mean. As I read through Mr. Tekulsky’s book, I found a passion that was contagious. It made me want to set up a similar environment in my backyard with the hope that I could get just one photo equal to his.

Finally, I recently visited Mr. Tekulsky's website and saw a photo of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Hume Kennerly holding this book in endorsement, and an announcement that 30 images from the book will soon be displayed at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History. If that's not a 5-star recommendation, I don't know what is. Great book!

Not the Holy Grail of Bird Photography books, but could be a fun read for some. 24 July 2014
By D. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Author writes in a long-winded, rambling style that includes repeating material between chapters. So many random experiences bound together by the chapter title! Yet this style may well appeal to those that are looking for the authors "experiences" rather than a book chock full of advice on how to do backyard bird setups, water features, etc.

Overly LARGE text size to page size ensures that those that are visually impaired will be able to read the book.

Too many of the birds in photographs suffer from cut-off tails, cut-in-half bodies, cut-off feet (and toes)....maybe the editor is responsible for this as writers/photographers don't necessarily get to do the image selection/editing.

But too many of the other photographs display in-focus backgrounds competing with the birds, and birds that were photographed dead-o, resulting in showing only breasts and beaks. There were some nice (but too often with cut off body parts) images of hummingbirds on feeders.

The cover photograph should give you a good indication of the quality of photography - if it appeals to you,then buy the book, But if BPN style birdphotography is your cup of tea, you'll be going elsewhere.

This isn't THE book on how to do backyard bird photography- that hasn't been written yet. But it is fun to read.

So if you are just starting out, give this book a read. If you've taken quite a few backyard bird photographs already, you might want to save your cash for the long lens you have been dreaming about.

Great book for nature lovers! 26 July 2014
By Peter D. Barash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fantastic new book about bird photography. Written for everyone, not just experienced birders and photographers, very accessible. Plenty of pictures of common backyard birds from both the east and west coasts, shown as you will actually see them, and not in the formal style of most bird guides. And did I mention that the photographs are absolutely gorgeous?

Mr. Tekulsky is a renowned nature writer and photographer (some of his photographs have been included in the official Yosemite guide, as well as many gallery shows and museum collections). To ensure that the book is not over dry, he includes many personal experiences along with extensive technical information. I truly believe that anyone with an interest in birds or nature photography will enjoy this beautiful book.

Great show and tell of not just "how to" but and in depth hands on close up of these beautiful birds! 30 July 2014
By Alex Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great show and tell of not just "how to" but and in depth hands on close up of these beautiful birds! The patience the author-photographer is showing in building trust with the birds certainly shows in these photographs. On page 73 the Yellow-rumped Warbler is truly spectacular. Highly recommend it.

We could all use some help 22 Oct. 2014
By J. Houghton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sure, you could probably figure out brain surgery on your own, given enough time and enough patients willing to sacrifice themselves. But a good book can accelerate the process, saving you time and victims. Mathew's book helped me get to the heart of backyard bird photography and I recommend it to anyone who isn't Arthur Morris but pays attention and would like to chronicle the avian visitors to his/her surroundings. Well worth the money and time.
