Very nice! I particularly like the threesome in the second photo.

Thanks Bob.

I must have a look back through my older photos as I took some where there was a whole gang of them on the feeders.

500th Post

Hi All…

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone for their comments and kind words about my bird photographs on the occasion of my 500th post (436 to this thread). In particular, I’d like to thank Richard Evers (evelakes) for starting this wonderful thread. Although I’ve been a member of POTN since 2009, I didn’t start seriously posting until late July of last year when I found this thread, and also found a home.

It amazes me to see the number of incredibly talented bird photographers here and how actively you share your work. My 500 posts seem trivial compared to the thousands posted by many others. I’m looking forward to sharing my next 500 and even more in the months ahead.

Tom

Not a very sharp image, but I like the morning light and the background of the image.

Well I for one am looking forward to your next 500, your photos have an inimitable style because of your unique, here anyway, location and are always a pleasure to view. Keep it up. cheers :)
