Absolutely love this one, shalu.

Thank you very much, Melissa!

Uh mazin!

IT's one of those shots - so where do you go from here? sunrise? abstract? what's next?

Thank you very much, Chris! Not sure, I just take what the opportunity presents to me :-P, and quite often I don't realize what I got until I review the captures later.

Fabulous shot, Archi. The dark background makes the bird stand out so nicely!

You captured the beautiful iridescent colors of this very pretty little bufflehead.

Beautiful bird. Looks like they have character from that pose.
Love the photo - very nice

Shalu I'm enjoying your mergansers and this couple are so lovely.
First rate.

On a smaller scale, male Superb Fairy Wren with his courtship presentation for his lady.
Apparently this is a very natural thing for them to collect yellow petals.

Talk about birds with character, I think the Fairy Wren may steal the show. Beautiful little birds
