A beautiful and diverse set with beautiful colors and details, but with #3 as absolute winner for me . What a great atmosphere and timing!
The kingfisher in flight is captured well too..

Hi Winston,

Again, a super and diverse series as Fred says above. The colours are lovely and give a feeling of the changing season very well. I too think #3 has the edge in the set - that rising early morning mist just takes it another level above the rest - but I am also taken by the series of the spider on the web: great detail, filling the image space and with the bonus of the dew drops on the web as well. The kingfisher? Well, I wish I could see one, let alone take an image like that of one. Not sure how you manage it but it's a fine image.

Thanks for sharing these and keep up the visits!
Best regards, Neil.

Thanks for the responses. I finally figured out where the kingfishers like to be (this year). I've been to Huntley a few times this year, and the kingfishers seem to like going to the same spots. I just waited for the kingfisher to go to this spot. And took pictures of spiders at the same time. Still practicing on the kingfisher capture though. They are quick.

I had this idea about the spider and the droplets which necessitated a lot of web removal. I posted the picture on another thread.

#13 - Again, the clean background and two birds in different poses makes this Audubon like. Very nice.

Thanks Roger. I reprocessed #13 to reduce the contrast.
