p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · More from the ditch


The "Ditch" a culvert that runs about a mile has been my new local hangout since they have totally closed off my pond for renovation. Spent some quality time with a Greenie that forgot to migrate and now I'm seeing some others show up.

A lovely set of images, Tom. I'm a sucker for kingfishers so I'll go for #3 as my pick.

Super stuff, Tom.
I have no favorites, but the shot of the perched kingfisher makes me laugh. Their considerable personality shows up perfectly in that one image.

Oh forget the pond Tom, you got a new "place". The resting KF is my favourite. I love the colour backgrounds. Super work.

Wow, first beautiful backgrounds that compliment these so well. Those KF shots great. I swear KF have eyes in the back of their heads when I try to shoot them. Were you in a blind while shooting these? The detail is amazing. Those RT's are great as well. I love that first one. It makes me wonder what prey he's targeting. Great set as always, Tom.

The backgrounds of 1 and 6 should be bottled and saved for every rainy day. Am always impressed with your kf in flight especially at the distance you appeared to capture it.
I wouldn't ditch the ditch just yet, it seems to be giving you the goods or the greats

Great shots Tom, especially the kingfishers because (at least for me) they are so tough to get close to.

Nice set Tom.

Looks like the RT's are getting kinda fat. Nice job catchin' those KF's. The are like the redtails to me as I can never get to comfortable to them before the start sharing signs that I'm to close. Some day though.

Super set of shots from a culvert!

Beautiful fall ducks Tom, they may be ordinary but they are stunning none the less. Excellent job with the demon birds, I would be careful with the look you are getting from the second, looks like you are on the menu! Excellent hawks, what's not to like about the second!!!! And one at 200!

Great to see you getting out there, I'm chained down until the weekend.
