THis mockingbird appears every day around 6:00 PM atop the cardboard palm by my driveway. I think it feeds on the fruits down in the plant. Tonight I finally got my camera and photographed it.

That sure is a SHARP shot, especially since its ISO was high, plus the extender you used, etc. VERY NICE!

An old male that I photographed a few years ago at Jones Beach.

It's a wonder he catches anything, with a strabismus like that!;-)a

Beautiful shot.

Do you have another with the head reflection in - that could look even stronger?

This Pied-billed Grebe is in full breeding plumage, he was really dark looking too, I don't believe that I have ever seen one that had as much black on him as he did.
I do have to say though, this was taken by my Nikon P900 and its contrast must be way too high for certain shots.
This almost looks like 'line work art', in a way, and all of the colors being so bland don't help it much. :)
