Nice shot Bill. Well done. I've tried for years to get a decent Meadowlark shot but so far no luck.

Thanks folks, appreciated.

Doc they are tough to get any kind of detail on. These were actually in my backyard and had no clue I was there for once.

I have found that the ones who would most benefit from constructive criticism are the least likely to want to hear it!!!

Tongue firmly in cheek......

I agree with you, Ed!!

I don't constructively criticise much, not because I don't want to hurt feelings but because I don't think I have the expertise to know whether my feelings about a picture are valid in terms of the photographic canon. I learn a lot here though and like to read others' criticisms.

While I understand what you are saying, I think anybody can look at a picture and say what she likes and dislikes about it, without malice, arrogance, or derision.
