Betty also took an amazing photo of our dog Gunner that I admire daily as it hangs on our family room wall. She has an incredible talent to capture the innate beauty of of nature and animals. I truly admire her passion for her work and look forward to working with her on future photography projects.”

“I’ve known Betty for over 40 years. She has an affinity for animals and is instinctive in watching their movements, knowing exactly when to shoot that perfect photo.
I traveled with her to Churchill-Manitoba, Canada on a Polar Bear Photo Safari on the untamed Hudson Bay Coast. It was there that I saw the extent of her dedication to her profession. In 10 degrees below zero weather she walked amongst polar bears, tromped over the arctic tundra with 13 screws in her ankle, never faltering, always intent on keeping up with the group. Even when one of the polar bears lay down in front of the snowmobile, she kept clicking!!
Now that’s dedication.”

“I have had the good fortune to know Betty Byrd since we were children in Oklahoma City. Always interested in the arts, Betty has employed unique vision and attention to detail in her work as an actor and a writer. Looking through the gallery of wildlife photos at http://byrdseyeviewphotos.com/ I can see that Betty brings these same talents to her work as a photographer. I particularly appreciate that this portfolio includes such a wide variety of animals shown in their natural habitats. Log onto Betty’s website and enjoy seeing Polar Bears in “the Untamed Arctic”, Moray Eels swimming in the “Deep, Blue World”, endangered cats from around the world, and much more. Also, take a moment to read the short, entertaining descriptions which help bring each subject to life.
The landscapes and natural settings, which frame each animal, truly add much to each shot. Betty not only chooses to work in beautiful areas, but also makes certain that lighting and time of day work to enhance the animal being photographed. For example, one of my favorite photos, “Lovebirds”, focuses on two Barn Owls posed side by side looking very much at home in a mystical, foggy evergreen forest where just the right amount of sunlight filters through the treetops. So, I recommend that you get to know these incredible animals, but don’t be surprised if you decide to take a few of your favorites home.”
