^ that's a beauty.

Tried to find Crested Tits in Sweden last year, but they proved elusive (one did fly past us at high speed, but that's as close as we got). Even if I did manage to finally snap one, I doubt I'd get it as well as you've done there.

Thank you P Man. Overall I am happy with the photo. I was very excited to have several bald eagles of different maturity so close to me. I took over 50 photos of seven different eagles in a few minutes time. The shots did not turn out exactly like I had planned. Only five or six shots came out right and worked for me. I was hoping for a little more success, but thats the way it goes. Each failure I experience makes me a better photographer. (in my own mind anyway)

@MG1968 - I believe that's an American Robin, but I'm guessing that you knew that and we're just kidding around. BTW, is you nickname a refernce to the car? - my neighbor has one and he actually let me take it out for a spin on one of the 4 days it ran last summer.

Hi,

No hide, these birds are not shy at all, at this particular location they are very well fed and if you keep movement to a minimum you are able to get very close indeed but I agree normally not within 20'.

nope, nothing that exciting, the "MG" are my initials and the "1968" is the year I was born.

Kind of figured that was a male robin, I don't think I've ever seen one with such a dark-colored head.

I think you should definitely get one for your mid-life crisis car. It is a fun little money pit. I'm only a year younger- my midlife crisis car would be a 69 'vette - though with two young kids that's not going to happen.

All the robins around us are colored that way. The females are a little browner, but they are ruddy underneath - in general just looking like a faded male. In my town, the females outnumber the males about 2:1. According to my Peterson's guide, robins are in the blackbird family and you can attract them by putting out cracked corn and mealworms.

Laughed out loud at the first one. The last looks like it should be a hood ornament on an car from the 1930s. The kite looks like a bird you don't want to mess with.

They do seem to know what they’re doing, and so does the photographer. Great job Silversurfer!!

Always amazed at the shots here. Nice one Serdar and like the face off Wayne. Some Pelicans from above, not an angle I usually get.









Liked the way the shadow gave a sort of polarising effect, especially in 2.

Cheers Brandy.

Peter - the high angles work really well, especially given the amazing colour of the water. Good work!
