"Portraits in Nature Photography", specializing in avian species located in southeast Arizona and the southwest.

Hello viewers!!  My wife Julie and I operate Battiste's Bed, Breakfast and Birds B&B, right in the midst of the Sky Islands of southeast Arizona.  My 35 year passion of bird watching and nature photography, led us to this utopia of avian delights.  Our B&B has become world famous for birders, bird photographers and nature lovers for its proximity to some of the best birding canyons and riparian areas in the southwest.  Many of the bird images in my gallery were shot right here on our property, from the 3 person blind (hide) that offers up-front and personal access to a plethora of species that frequent our feeders and water feature. Enjoy my gallery and better yet, make a visit here and create your own gallery, beginning right here in my backyard.  Photo workshops are conducted throughout the year hosted by myself and world renowned photographer, BRYAN HOLLIDAY.
