Quite an attractive shot with the pretty blossoms, Terry. Very nicely composed.

Very pretty bluebird shot, especially with the nice background. I like the composition a lot.

We found a spot where these guys liked to hang. It was in a heavily wooded area, but with this much color that's fine. :)

Greater Roadrunner

Yesterday was the only opportunity I've ever had to shoot a roadrunner. He was hauling @ss and stopped momentarily, allowing me to fire off 3 frames. Two were immediately trashed, and this is the only one I kept. It's not the greatest, but I'm just glad to have finally had a shot at one. Now it's off to find Wile E. Coyote  :p.

Thank you Rob. Being an outdoor person who likes to hunt and fish a lot, I run across them from time to time, but never when I have a camera with me. This was really an unexpected treat for me. I hope you have the same good fortune very soon.

Love the composition of these two. Both colourful and very natural looking.

Always admired these birds, from afar.
You've captured this one beautifully.
Beautiful details, colours, composition
Love the pose. Looks ready for action.
