"Taro was one of my first contacts when I started with Flickr not so long ago.
I was struck by how excellent his work was - he was one of the first people I felt compelled to send an "you're photos are awesome" email too.
And since then his images have got even better!!

"Taro's images are beautiful and inspirational, and encompass a wide range of subjects, from the smallest ladybug climbing a bubble (you must go to his photostream to find that image!) to birds and flowers, people and animals, sunsets and seascapes and landscapes. That we share many of the same pet hates endears him to me as well. He is a kind and thoughtful member of the Flickr community. Go take a look at his shots!"

"Taro's work is simply breathtaking!
I love visiting and seeing what amazing new creature or place he's captured in his own unique way.
A heart of gold, an animal lover, an eye for the fantastic, super-talented - he is a magical find here at flickr!"

"I stumbled across Taro's work here at Flickr and was utterly amazed to find that he is an amateur photographer....since much of his work looks like it just came off the pages of National Geographic.
Taro has that rare talent that can truly "see" a shot that so many of us might have missed had we been looking at the same scene. His work while amongst nature is truly world-class, and we're very lucky to have his talents being shared with us here at Flickr.
And on top of his photo skills, he's a top notch human being who seems to always have a kind comment for other people's work.
A class act all the way...."
