The companion e-book to the solo exhibit at TheNat, San Diego, California

The new e-book on CD is available here.

birds as art: The Avian Photography of Arthur Morris/The Top 100

My latest e-book, created on a wing and a prayer in less than two weeks–see Harebrained Scheme here–includes the 67 spectacular images that hung in the Ordover Gallery at the San Diego Natural History Museum in a career-retrospective solo exhibition in 2017. In addition, there are an additional 33 images in the spectacular e-book that barely missed making the show.

This exhibition companion e-book makes it possible for everyone to “visit” TheNAT gallery retrospectively — and, in addition, to enjoy seeing my then-top one hundred bird photographs under one roof. Each image includes a title, the species name, the location, relevant EXIF data, and an anecdotal caption.

The 800 f/5.6L IS

I was amazed by how many of the exhibit images were created with the 800 f/5.6L IS… If you need maximum reach and would like to add this great lens to your gear bag consider the great buy below. You can see the complete Used Photo Gear listings here.

Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens

Andres Leon is offering a used Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS lens in Very Good Plus condition for the very low price of $7899. The lens has clean glass and is in perfect working order but has a few scratches on the finish. Feel free to request photos of the lens. The sale includes the lens trunk and keys, a LensCoat, the front leather cover, the rear cap, a Wimberley P-40 lens plate, and insured ground shipping via FED-EX Ground. Your item will not ship until your check clears unless other arrangements are made. Please contact Andres via e-mail or by phone at 1-954-621-6678 (eastern time).

I used this lens, often with a 1.4X TC, as my main super-telephoto lens for close to five years. It is a superb lens that offers lots of reach for those working with birds that are skittish. It is great from the car. I was astounded that about 15 of the 67 images in the exhibit were created with my 800. I often miss it terribly. As the lens sell new at B&H for $12,999 Andres’s lens is a superb buy; grab it now and save more than $5K! artie

    Hi Art,

    Forgive me if this is a silly question, but are the CD and downloadable e-book versions identical in terms of file size, quality etc. ie. has the downloadable e-book been “re-sized” at all to make it faster/easier to download?

    Thanks in advance & I look forward to getting my hands on a copy soon.

      Both files are identical. If you reduce the size you reduce the quality of the viewing experience.

    I love the least tern chick image. Sheer perfection!

    • avatar Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART

      Thanks. I can remember the moment that I created that one. How sweet. And I do miss the old 800 at times… a

      ps: there are 66 more pretty good ones in the CD book 🙂

    Just ordered it! I bet it is the first order of your e-book from Guatemala! Waiting for the download instructions…

    Doug and John, Best is to hit “Continue.” On rare occasion, the site may hang up and you will need to start again. If you are ever billed twice, Jim will note it and refund the second charge.

    Easiest is to simply place a phone order: 863-692-0906. And that is the only way to have your copy signed on the inside of the CD cover.


  • Just ordered it! Am I the first order? Do I get cd #1??? Woo Hoo!! Can’t wait!


    • Okay, I’m coming down from my Pepsi high 🙂

      Has anybody mentioned the little confusion, at least for me, at checkout? There’s a point after placing submitting the order where it says:”Please Wait.” Then right under that is a button to “Continue.” I remember when I placed my first order awhile ago, I saw that and was afraid to hit continue out of fear of getting charged twice.

        Thanks Doug. You are indeed the first :). I am checking with Jim and will get back to you here. a

      • Doug,

        I just had the same thing happen, and remembered that this is not unusual when ordering from this site. I clicked continue and it went to a “Thank you” page that listed my order number.
