Very cool looking shot, Shalu. The appearance of the water, makes it look like this grebe is ridding out a rough storm. I really like it.

A flicker, flicking his tongue.:-) Very nicely done shot, Tom. Congrats on the 500 posts, and looking forward to your next 500 posts. Your photos are always very enjoyable to view.

Thanks everyone.

Exquisitely captured, Mike. I can't figure out how you all get these nice, muted tones and colors, but I really like the look.

500th Post

Tom I've always enjoyed your posts and you've added greatly to the enrichment of this thread.
The clarity, naturalness, detail & beauty of your photos are inspiring.
Look forward to that continuing.

500th Post

Hi All…

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone for their comments and kind words about my bird photographs on the occasion of my 500th post (436 to this thread). In particular, I’d like to thank Richard Evers (evelakes) for starting this wonderful thread. Although I’ve been a member of POTN since 2009, I didn’t start seriously posting until late July of last year when I found this thread, and also found a home.

It amazes me to see the number of incredibly talented bird photographers here and how actively you share your work. My 500 posts seem trivial compared to the thousands posted by many others. I’m looking forward to sharing my next 500 and even more in the months ahead.

Tom

Looks really good, great job!
