In 2002, he was introduced to birding by a close friend who asked for some help with his bird photography. A whole new world opened up to him and he was hooked. He was back in the beauty business again, but this time it was birds, butterflies and all the magnificent creatures of nature. Owen travels all over the world in pursuit of his passion. This site is a way of sharing his love of these beauties with his friends. Enjoy
