Birds are social animals – they communicate using visual signals, calls and songs, participate in social behaviors including cooperative breeding and hunting, flocking, and mobbing of predators. Unfortunately, we rarely get to see these fascinating moments of their lives, but thanks to photographers we can finally get closer to them (especially with big, heavy 500mm lenses running for between $5,000 and $9,000).
Meet Johh&Fish - one of the most popular ornithology photography teams around Flickr. They are brother and sister living and working together for over 20 years, however their photography career started only in 2006.
Amazed by the beauty of birds in Taiwan John&Fish just fell in love with the nature. John having extensive training in music and the arts had the necessary discipline and focus to capture birds in the wild. Their each photograph looks like a painting, because from the very beginning John&Fish takes photographs from an artistic perspective.
To capture these fascinating bird images, John and Fish often drive a very long to find the perfect spots. Their Flickr album has already reached over a million views, but they expect to produce more and even better photographs.
