I have been working on a few different types of photography and below is one of them that I have been happy with the results from. I think they can offer a different view of the birds. Hope you enjoy. Also, can you guys guess the bird species in each of them? :lol:

Play the guessing game:
#1-Bald Eagle #2 It isn't a whooping crane, is it? More likely a sandhill #3 A duck-since mallards are pretty common, let's go w/ the odds here #4 C'mon! #5 Great blue heron #6 That baldie again or some type of hawk
Did I get any right?? Nice idea-something different.

Thank you all very much. Ardee you are very close! You have #1, 2,5, and 6 right. #2 is a Sandhill and #6 is a bald eagle.

3 and 4 are visually interesting=nice to look at, artistic etc.. Number 5 looks good, except the red/green chromatics; between the heron and the bg.. I Tried looking at number 5 in Black and White but was still wanting more head room, perhaps a portrait view with more headroom above the bird in black and white/gray scale..

Nice ones. My favorite is number 5. I've got a few like these... some by design, some by circumstance. We need a silhouettes thread!
