    "Ken always brings something "NEW to the Table" every visit I make to his outstanding flickr site. His stream shows each viewer how much he loves nature and values wildlife in its own environment. I love seeing his part of Florida through his "glass eye." Thanks Ken for being one of my first flickr friends and for always being there when I need you. People like you and "your form of art "show the rest of the world what Mother Nature has given to all of us to enjoy. You just help by making it all come to life!"

    "Dixie , or Ken if you wish , has been a contact for quite some time and not only are his photos outfreakinstanding....(yea thats a word)...but his ability to visit the streams of others and encourage is in itself noteworthy.(that speaks volumes as to the caracter of a man)
    through his lense I have seen the wonderous beauty of nature ,and evin learned just what I am looking at, not just photos of bugs , birds , critters and such.but the added bonus of both common name(s) & the ones I cant say.....tid-bits of insight into his world and a smattering of his personal life ,family & loved ones among the various other events n things in his life ,thanks for sharen'...no doubt a man learned in both his career and photography.(ya' cant just "lucky-shot" that many awsome photos !)
    I find myself setting my laptop to slideshow his photostream at the Studio where I work and my clients ohhhh...ahhhh..wow...O.M.G.....photo after photo ...amazing!
    Glad to have met this man & proud to call him friend !"

    "What can I say about Ken....Well for starters he is an exceptional photographer. Just a brief look through his photostream will leave you with an impression of, not only his skill as a photographer, but also someone with a deep interest and appreciation of nature in all its forms. His bird photography is really exceptional and I deeply envy him that ability. His stream is incredibly varied and diverse and I now know a lot more about American wildlife and nature than I did before becoming a Flickrite. I also like the sense of humour he displays in captioning his work. He strikes me as being someone with a great enjoyment in his family and family life but also someone who spares the time to leave encouraging and supportive comments on other peoples' work. Finally I wish to thank him for the lovely things he said about my artwork. It is very nice when someone appreciates something which has taken a long time to create. So, before this testimonial turns into a small book, I encourage everyone to visit Ken's pictures and enjoy...... it is time very well spent."

    "I actually have no idea why I'm the first person to write a testimonial for Ken - his photos are incredible. Each one of them is exquisite and unique and well done. I was going to mention that his bird photos especially are really wonderful, but then I remembered his macros, and his landscapes...and all I can really say is, all of his photos are awesome. Great job! :)"
