This Purple Martin remained on the perch for about twenty minutes while I photographed him in a myriad of poses. As you can probably see from this photograph, he appears to be engaged.
This very pretty female Hooded Merganser was perched on a log in the middle of a pond when I approached her. She remained there for approximately a half hour while I snapped away. I felt honored and was sure to thank her as I left the pond.
I took this photograph of an ancient looking Black Vulture on a foggy morning in a Florida swamp. This wonderful bird greeted me as the fog began to lift after sunrise. He posed himself in this all-knowing posture that continues to haunt me each time I view it.

Laura Meyers Photographer Bio
I am currently passionate about photographing birds, butterflies and other wonders of nature. My background is in fine art as a painter and sculptor. Over the years, I gradually gravitated towards the computer as a fine art tool availing myself of the latest technologies within my reach. I have been using digital photography for quite a few years and have always been comfortable learning and utilizing the latest hardware and software to complete my vision. Photographing birds and other wildlife is particularly satisfying when working on a large high definition monitor where I can continue to explore the intricacies of nature. And with the growth of the internet, sharing my art with others is simpler than ever. I currently live and work in the East Village in Manhattan.
