I love your artistic approach to this shot. I find it very alluring.

Beautiful...great job of photographing that guy in the rain. It's kind of interesting; I would have thought that 1/500 of a second would have stopped the motion of the rain drop. I like the effect it has, and feel that the drops definitely add to the attractiveness of the two images.

Thanks!

I'm thinking it should be possible to calculate the speed of the raindrops from the shutter speed and the length of the trails...

Nice, Bill! These Redstarts won't sit still for even a second, will they?! Very tough to lock onto!

I'm sure glad to hear someone else say that! I thought is was just me. Lol!

Female White Bellied Sea Eagle taken at the Birds of Prey show, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

These were taken from a seated position as the handlers walked around displaying the bird. I’ve had to push the shadows reasonably hard due to the very bright BG.

The female is larger than the male.

Cheers

Dennis
