Speechless! You really do take bird photography to another level Sha.

Back with another award winner there; amazing capture!

Thank you very much, Shalu! This shot is with the adapted 100-400, not the 100-500. The adapter ring works perfectly with no negative effects.


What a cool shot, Shalu!! It does look a bit gostly.

Thank you very much, Neal, Pippan, Eric and Mike!

Great egret got a fish head. Fish passing through the pump often get chopped up by the pump blades.

Thank you very much for your concern, Mike and everyone, I am back :lol:

I'm glad all is well. Is Shalu a "he" or a "she"? If your don't mind answering, that is.

When somebody asks "What do they mean by "Golden Light?", I would show them this image. Sublime.

Lovely! I never thought that a Bushtit could *possibly* look angry, tho :D

Thank you, Eric. They seem quite happy bouncing all over, nonstop from branch to branch. I think that look is more of a "darn, you caught me" kind of look. :p

Nice one Shaul. There seems to be difference of opinion as to who that dinner belongs to.

Very nice, Mike. It seems like this egret would have wanted to choose a more comfortable perch.:-)

Thank you, Mike. The one on the left is a juvenile waiting to be fed. The one on the right flew in to feed it but then, I think it realized it was not its own kid and flew away with the fish :lol::lol:
