Mia McPherson is a nature lover, wildlife watcher and bird photographer. Birds fascinate, delight and intrigue her which is why she devotes many hours learning about them, observing their behavior and photographing them. By learning more about each subject, she can anticipate their behavior and create opportunities to obtain better images of those species. Mia enjoys sharing her photos, photographic skills and techniques with those individuals who are serious about their own bird and wildlife photography.
