I asked Gerry what kind of camera set-up he uses to capture these images.

"This kind of photography has two elements. One is the use of multiple flashes. The light used to photograph the bird is from the flashes, not from the ambient or surrounding light. In fact, the less ambient light, the better the image. Shooting in shade or in the evening is always preferable to sunlight with this method," he said.
