Dang LD, you keep nailing it with these Acorn Woodpecker shots. Another great one, great exposure and tons of detail. Very nice.

You are very kind with your compliment, EB, and I truly appreciate your encouraging, thoughtful comments. I must admit; my cyber garbage can is filled to the top with photos that didn't make the cut.:-( I'm fortunate to have found an old dead tree that two pairs of acorn woodpeckers are currently raising their young in. The four adults of these to nesting sites are flying back and forth to feed their young.

So with this kind of peckerwood action going on, I'm bound to get lucky every now and then.:-)

Nice one Mike. I like seeing the flight feathers at work, and catching the head turned to show the eye is a nice bonus.

I truly thank you for this encouraging compliment, Ken. It's very thoughtful of you.

What a great shot, the detail is amazing.

Many thanks jm! I really appreciate the kind compliment.

Terrific flight portrait shot, Paul. These Reddish Egrets photograph so beautifully. Of course the photographer has a lot to do with that.:-)

What a nice flight capture of this house sparrow, Tom!

What a wonderful flight capture of the Long Billed Curlew, EB! I'm curious as to what that is that he caught?

Thanks Mike,much appreciated.

LOL! Thanks Mike, I think he liked getting his picture taken. Or maybe it was my aftershave!

Just as it looked like the eagles weren't going to show up today one was nice enough to do a flyby.
