My profession is to always find God in nature.
Some of my photographs have been used for various publications. Others have been winners in local bird photo contests. One photo was used in 2007 as a theme photo for the KAAY FECC - Festival international de toutes les danses, 4ème édition du Festival Kaay Fecc, held in the République du Sénégal.
In 2007 I published two books using the Blurb book website. One book, called Aves del Parque Central de San Juan, can be seen here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/54071. The other is a nature photo book of the Caribbean Island of Dominica. It can be seen here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/51132. Also many of my bird photos can also be seen on two other excellent sites: http://alfredo.colon.oiseaux.net/ and http://www.oiseaux-birds.com/home-page.html. The endemic species can be seen here: http://www.oiseaux-birds.com/article-island-birds-endemic-puerto-rico.html.
I’m a contributor to the Encyclopedia of Life in the internet with Dragonfly (Odonata) photos, http://www.eol.org/, and to the local Ornithological Society, Sociedad Ornitológica Puertorriqueña, Inc, http://avesdepuertorico.org, with local bird photos. I'm also a contributor to the Center for Biological Diversity, http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/, which used one of my photos for a special conservation petition before the Secretary of the Interior of the United States:

In a recent issue of the scientific journal LIfe: The Excitement of Biology 3(1), there is an article by Javier E. Mercado and Jorge A. Santiago-Blay, called Multiple Model Mimicry and Feeding Behavior of the Spider Web-Inhabiting Damsel Bug, Arachnocoris berytoides Uhler (Hemiptera: Nabidae), from Puerto Rico, in which one of my photos was used.
