Hi, my name is Jon Pullen and I welcome you to my website. I am by no means an authority on avian matters and this site and blog page only displays my amateur attempt as a hobbiest at capturing avian images from South Africas
abundant birdlife . So this is my record of birding as seen through my lenses.

I use Canon EOS 7D & 600D cameras with Sigma 70-300mm, Canon 100-400mm L &
Tamron 150-600mm lenses to capture what you see here.

I have always had an interest in birds since childhood and in later years photography
but due to the usual pressure of work never really got started.  This year I've decided to
combine the two interests and what you find here is the result of that effort.

There will probably be many image updates along this journey as my photographic skills
improve and hope one day, to be able to post amazing pics similar to those posted on facebook
and seen on websites of other seasoned birding gurus.

Hope you enjoy the images and like me, also learn something about birds along the way!!.
