One of the regulars posted a wonderful photo of an eagle landing with its shadow cast on the ice sheet below and I mistakenly took the post to be a “post your bird shadows” thread.:rolleyes:

A couple of folks suggested we start a new thread on this topic so here it is, the official, bone fide “Post your birds with their shadows and reflections” thread.

I’ll kick it off with a Cormorant touching down on the beach and look forward to contributions from other Forum members.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Great thread!

Here's a trippy one. Very Escheresque. Black turnstones in flight at the Oregon Coast.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Love the colours and clarity in #2, the wings out pose in #3 and the lighting in #4.

Cheers
