Specifically, you may use them for screensavers or desktop images only, but you may not republish (or hot-link) them on the web or in print without explicit written permission. All commercial use is explicitly prohibited without a license agreement (I generally give no-charge royalty free licenses to students, non-profits, etc.)

I have a limited number of high quality photographic reproductions available up to 12"x15". Except as noted, all images are shot with ambient light in the bird's habitat at the National Aviary. Flash was hardly ever used - it scares the birds. All images are as-shot - nothing is cropped.
