Again, so many superb shots posted here, but these in particular really stood out for me. Breathtaking images.


Canon 7D2 · 50 f/1.8 · 17-55 f/2.8 IS · 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM · 100 f/2.8 Macro · 100-400 L IS II
Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

I can hear his squee, just seeing the photo, Mike. :)

Thanks Phil. My hearing is gone and I never get to enjoy the squee sound they make.

This thread moves so fast, it's almost impossible to keep up.

Is it just me, or does this Tri-Colored Heron look like it has a tear-off on on it's eye?

I agree Phil...this thread is extremely hard to keep up with. Very nice close-up of the heron...great detail. To me that little piece showing on the eye looks like it is a part of it's nictitating membrane. It appears as though the bird might have blinked, or is just starting to blink.

What bird is this? Gorgeous!!

I am no where near British Columbia where this was likely shot, but this looks like a Cedar Waxwing.

It almost looks like it's hitchhiking  :p Very unique capture though, they're normally super secretive and shy.

 :p Thanks, Matthew. :-)

Graham these really are pretty Plovers. Your photos show them beautifully.
This one is very nice.

But I have to admit (gulp), I've never seen any here, but they are most common and widespread of Australia’s beach-nesting shorebirds :oops:
