Very nice, Shalu...that's a long stretch. The wing almost looks out of proportion.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Golden Tanager. Amagusa Reserve, Ecuador.

Your birds from that area are so colourful and beautifully photographed.
Really nice watching them.

Love the positioning here and the contrasts in the birds.
Nice reflections. All adds up to a beautiful photo

Fantastic low down photo.
Colours and reflections are beautiful.

Another clear and crisp photo of an intriguing bird.
Very nice

Enough to give us fantastic detail. Clear, sharp.
A very handsome bird.

Eurasian skylark

I've been wondering when a Skylark would appear.
Very nice indeed. Love the detail.
If they're like ours they're gone before you get within a bulls roar.

There's some really amazing photos on this thread.

This is a different nest and different female from my previous posts, although the nests are within sight of each other. There is always constant vigilance against un-attached males that stray too close. Eggs should be laid within days now.
