The Jackdaw.......Don't know why but I tend to ignore these birds. Probably because they are so common.

I wasn't expecting to see one of these this morning. I had no ideal what it was at the time, had to wait till I got home to Identify it.

This is a Male Ruff and very rare to see in the UK, The RSPB have given it a Red Status as it is in decline with only approximately 800 birds.

Very nice. When they're moulting out of their finery, as this one is, they can be a bit hard to match with anything in the field guides.

I love these loon photos. I saw a pair of loons and an older chick, first time ever, last summer at Acadia NP in Maine. I was smitten. But I didn't have my long glass with me so the pix I did get wre not quite as sharp as I wanted. I want more!!! Love your photos PR!!

Thank's Ed.. I totally get it. Their a huge challenge to shoot. And when they call close by it's something you will never forget.

Yeah what I don't get, is photobucket is SLOW and full of advertising even as a paying member, so I hope they have fun with their $399 game, everyone is ditching, that's just an insane amt of $

Had a visiter just a few minutes ago, I grabbed the 100-400L off the table and it had a 7D on it... I feel for those still using it and wonder how I ever stayed with photography using one. Yes the 7DII is always broken but it will capture a bit more detail. I can't believe I had to work so hard to get an image .... Not that long ago.
