Photography by Charles W. Melton
Nature Photography

WELCOME to the nature photography of Charles W. Melton. As a full-time photographer I travel extensively throughout much of the U.S. photographing a wide range of nature subjects. My images have been published in a variety of magazines, books, calendars, and other products. They have also accompanied articles I have had published in magazines such as Birder's World, Bird Watcher's Digest, and WildBird.

Hummingbirds are a favorite photographic subject of mine and are my most published images. I have been invited to present programs on hummingbirds at the Hummer/Bird Celebration in Rockport, TX and the Hummingbird Fiesta in Tucson, AZ. I also conduct Hummingbird Photography Workshops near Tucson, AZ.

I hope you enjoy your visit and I would appreciate any comments that you have.
