Hi Steve: I am a amateur colored pencil artist (retired industrial designer) and have been focused on bird drawings for the last 5 years. I am seeking your permission to use your photos as reference for my drawings. I have received permission from ( Bod Grees and David Seibel and also (birdsbybaranoff) Steve Baranoff. Some of my originals are in a gallery on Nantucket (shore birds) and others have been used on publications in Arizona (Sonoran Desert birds). I would always send to you by email a copy and if you desire I would be most pleased to sent a print. If it would please you I can send a email of my most recent drawings. Thanks for the consideration. Jan Spieczny

Hello Steve,

I found your galleries here through your post on DPR in the Canon weekly wildlife thread. Your work is incredible and I'm extremely impressed to say the least.

Although I've been shooting for over 30 years I've recently got the bug for wildlife after spending a week on Sanibel in Florida. Spending most mornings in the Ding Darling NWR and coming back with 2500 images gives me an appreciation for how difficult it is to obtain really good images like yours. Again, very impressive work.

I noticed that many of your shots show a FL of 400mm @f6.3. Can I assume this is the Canon 400f5.6L? I also see some shots with 500mm listed. I'm curious as to what lenses you are using and find the most productive for your work.
