Superb, Robert. The white of the eagle's head adds to making this a very striking looking image. The blurred background really makes this one stand out beautifully.

Wow...I love this one, Geoff!

Crikey, these two images are fine. Are these cropped? You could zoom in a bit and make epic Wall Hangers, just IMHO. :-)

Some nice underwing hues and detail in this one Mike along with good eye contact.:-)

Interesting how the hidden leg is folded along the body, just peeking through under the tail feathers - what balance!

Cheers

Dennis

Thank you very much, Dennis. I never really payed much attention to that, but you're absolutely right. He sure was able to hide that leg from our view, except for that one little bit just barely showing thru the tail. Yes, that is amazing balance, for sure.

Thank you very much, Shalu.
This close-up shot of the white pelican is so unique and beautifully done, Shalu.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Very nicely done shot, Sid. Your dippers are really cool looking birds.

Thanks very much Mike, :)

Stellar shot of this least sandpiper, Shalu. It appears to be chatting with you. :-)

Awesome image Mike.
It's amazing how they're able to balance.
Happy trails.

That one looks like our house sparrow, Richard. Nicely done shot of him on that lichen ridden hunk of wood.
