Two shots - before & after breakfast.

This little Hummer either had an injury or was blinded because every shot I have he has his right eye closed but seemed to manage ok even though its depth perception was off at times.

Beautiful shot TD...very sharp. You had to shoot at a pretty high ISO because of your faster shutter speed (which really stopped the wing movement), and there is no visible noise that I can see. You are obviously using a great noise reduction program. This shot is really nicely done.

Thanks, Mike. I'm using Topaz NR. I like it so far :)

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

Thanks wagaboo, I've been using Topaz DeNoise 6. It works pretty well for me.

Eye level with the vultures after some climbing in the Spanish Pyrenees. Impressive birds!

Crappy shot but maybe worth it for the expression on the hawk's face. The hawk is getting pecked by a woodpecker.

EDIT: I've been told this is actually an Eastern Kingbird attacking a Swainson's Hawk. The kingbird has a red patch on its crown that is normally concealed but shows when it is excited.
