This is one of the best examples I have ever seen that demonstrates the enormous power of photography. I hereby declare Wilson Hsu as a”Master Photographer”. Keep shooting Wilson; keep shooting until you are too old to hold a camera or drop dead in the process!

Beautiful. Moving. More than simple wildlife photography, this is wildlife documentary at its finest.

Ummmm….

….you do realise that that’s a classic bird copulation pose and the fact that birds mating with their deceased mates is not an uncommon thing at all.

Simply Outstanding

A very sad occasion, but as a photographer you really did an outstanding job and this portfolio reveals great insight into the social habits of these birds. Truly I am unlikely to forget these images. Well done.

Poor Birds

Humans holding a loved one while they are dying may look like they are trying to copulate. I think this is a great series of photographs regardless of what is taking place … I’ll call it love. Thanks for sharing. Judi

Your series on the grief of the Barn Swallows is so beautifully told through your eyes. Magnificent and truly heart-breaking work. Thank you for sharing. I hope to see more of your work.

Just asking how it went further

Dear Wilson,

Today I saw your amazing and moving photo ‘s of the swallow’s tragedie and I wondered…did sombody took care of the little ones in the nest later on? I meen, the male bird is probably not capeble of feeding them all on his own…
