I look at these two shots and marvel at how you consistently get such lifelike images, Steve. These truly are beautiful! Not only do you have great skill with a camera, but your post processing is wonderful!

Mike, I can't thank you enough for your truly encouraging and kind words! They are so deeply appreciated.

Very nicely captured portrait of these Mallards, Mike. The image does a real good job as well in manifesting the drake's curled tail feathers. (As an aside, their going in opposite directions reminds me of my wife and myself. ;-)a )

:lol: My wife and I too, ha, ha. I thank you Steve, for your kind and considerate comments that you always make...including this one. They certainly are uplifting.

Your image here is really a beauty, Rich! This guy's colors are so pretty, and the cloudy background adds tremendously to the attractiveness of the shot. I also love the way you composed it.

I just love the look of pure scorn these birds appear to display!


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

What a beauty!

Gorgeous shot of the drake mallard, fotoi! Beautiful color throughout the entire shot!

You surely nailed this shot, Mark! Excellent work!

I like this pose of him downing a gulp of water. Quit an attractive shot, Bill!

What a wonderful shot of this burrowing owl, Tom! The excellent separation from the background makes this bird come alive.

I look at these two shots and marvel at how you consistently get such lifelike images, Steve. These truly are beautiful! Not only do you have great skill with a camera, but your post processing is wonderful!

Lovely shot of the tricolored heron, Joe! They certainly are beautiful birds.

Outstanding shot of the hoodie, Jimmy! It's definitely an eye grabber!

Thank you kindly, Mike!
