Red-crested cardinal, from Hawaii

Well, that gives me an idea for a contest.
"Is it real or Photoshopped."
Take parts of different birds and assemble them into a hybrid, then get others to try to guess if it is a real bird species or not.
If you had entered that photo I would have guessed it was put together.

Here's another one. He was a pest every morning at breakfast, on Kauai, wanting us to throw crumbs.

Short Eared Owl at Uphill, Weston Super Mare. Taken just as the light/sun went down. It took off from the branch and headed straight for me, unfortunately the 5-6 shots I got were all OOF as the light was poor and my speed was not hight enough. Never mind, I was happy with this capture.

That's a nice image, except that it looks much too sharpened to me.

The first is a great behavioral capture.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.
