Outstanding capture of the Great Horned Owl, Paul! It almost looks as though he's purposely posing for you.

"Big and Bold" Terrific capture of the Black-bellied Plover, Kirk! As always, the low camera angle gives this shot a big boost, as far as appeal is concerned.

Nice sharp close-up of the Limpkin, Kirk!

Stupendous close-up of the Anhinga, Paul! I'm really amazed at how close you are able to get to your subjects. Outstanding work.


Bill, both of your Painted Bunting shots are absolutely amazing! Beautiful work!


Very nice shots of these two beauties, RAL!
