Look, I got a big fish

Truly amazing capture.
Not sure who gets the prize, the Cormorant or Shalu
Brilliant stuff.

It's hard enough being a human on this planet, but fish???

This is such a phenominal shot, Paul!! I'm totally blow away at how you, and others here are able to get such outstanding shots of predators with their prey.

Thanks for the kind words Mike.

That is a cute, very appealing shot, Graham. Excellent work.

Thanks Mike,

Gotta agree with you, the cuteness factor was high with this one!

I am ashamed to admit there may be a similar picture or two floating around of me at the all-you-can-eat buffet...

Quick shot of this guy through the window yesterday. Seemed to be puffing up and yelling at someone..

With fresh snow, pretty much house bound. Birds are quite hungry though...may have to trudge out and refill the feeders.

All of these are through the window. Not optimal, but if I open it they all fly away for 10 min and it is too cold to leave it open!
