About the Author

Donald Hume
djhu Prairieville, Louisiana, USA

Following my retirement and relocation to the Gulf Coast, I immediately began photographing one of my favorite subjects, the birds of the Gulf Coast. I have always enjoyed nature photography, particularly of butterflies, but living in an area with such a plethora of beautiful birds, one cannot resist the urge to capture their beauty.

In 2010 I formed Hume Nature Photography with my wife who joined me in capturing the beauty of nature. We are dedicated to capturing the beauty and artistry of nature and hope that our work achieves that goal. The beauty of nature is all around us and our hope is that we can give you a few moments of pleasure while enjoying the great "beauty and artistry of nature" that surrounds us.

Such a lovely presentation of these elegant birds! Thoroughly enjoyed previewing this book as well as your others. You have captured the egrets so well!

Will be traveling to Louisiana in March to do some nature photography and your photos and information have added to the anticipation of my trip... Fay

Hi Don,
Your photographs are a work of art. Not only to catch egrets in their inherent grace and exquisite form, but to compose and capture that decisive moment that makes them so unique. I have a few in my book as well and am always amazed at the simplicity of their loveliness that seems to flow effortlessly across the ponds - and my eyes. Congratulations!
