The NSN Store is awesome! I have ordered multiple things from them recently, the shipping was super fast, I even received my Beamer Keeper the day after I ordered it! They cannot be beat by any other online store. I will be ordering most if not all of my gear from the NSN Store from now on! Thanks to Greg and all involved, keep up the good work! :)

I'm a real stickler for customer service. Good service is pretty rare these days, yet Naturescapes has gone far beyond what I would call good service - it has been amazing. It is such a pleasure to deal with honest people who care if the customer is happy. Please keep up the excellent work!! Many thanks!!

This ebook was a disappointment. For something published in 2011, the photos are excellent (though not outstanding), and the diversity of species is truly amazing.

However, I was hoping for some wisdom and detail from someone who really knows bird photography; instead, what EJ provides is a set of beginner-level generalities ("digital photographers also need a good storage system...on a high capacity hard drive") and not-so-useful field advice ("Public parks, zoos, ponds or
waterways are often the best spots..."it is best to use a slow
and methodical approach"). One of the most disappointing aspects of the book is that the "Places in North America to photograph every species" is a brief list of ~ 20 places (including a handful of zoos) with no additional information.

What would have been truly useful is a field guide with specific advice about seasons, locations, timing, and light conditions.

Advantages: A comprehensive set of duck photos in a single pdf.

Disadvantages: Cursory, incomplete, and more about EJ's photo collection than learning about bird photography.

Very well written, great photo's and lot's of information on exposure for each species of duck as well as where to find them.

A decade ago E.J. and I met while photographing birds during spring migration in Pt. Pelee, Canada. Instantly we became friends and photography buddies. Over the years I have witnessed, and been fascinated by, E.J.'s particular passion with Ducks. If you thought bird photography was a specialty, E.J. has carved a niche for himself that no one else can touch in capturing these beautiful water-bound birds.

One of the goals E.J. set for himself during the last decade was to photograph every Duck species found in North America - a tall order for anyone. He has not only accomplished that goal but has done it with skill and artistry.

E.J.'s new ebook "Ducks of North America - The Photographers Guide" is a celebration of this monumental accomplishment and includes stunning array of images and detailed species accounts of all the native species found in North America, as well as visitors and captives. But this guide goes far beyond Ducks and how to photograph them. The depth of equipment and field techniques shared in this guide rivals many of the classic how-to books on general nature and bird photography. E.J. covers all the bases from gear recommendations to exposure, outdoor flash, composition, capturing action and beyond. This is a must have guide for anyone interested in photographing birds and especially ducks!
