p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Great Spotted Woodpecker at sundown and others


6 pics

First is a Great Spotted Woodpecker, a female I think as it has no red on its head. Taken as the sun was going down at its back.
After that a bit of variety from my usual haunt, the local park.
The Merganser had 10 chicks, 9 of which were tucked under its wings and the last one struggling to get up the steps.
The last one gives a view up lake Geneva, more about the clouds than the lake.

Thought I would throw in a few poppies for a bit of color and to show the nice designs the lawnmowers make

C&C welcome and thanks for looking.
Martin

Lovely light in the first shot, Martin!
Th second image tells a sweet story. Well captured
The third one looks properly exposed and shows some very fine detail.
Beautiful lake-scape the fifth one with the beautiful clouds taking the cake.
Very pleasing balance of colors in the last one
Nice work!

A potpouri of excellent images, Martin.
And as Socrate mentions, #2 tells quite the story: part humor, part concern that the last guy makes it up the step... and all of it part of the story.
That's quite a lot from one image.

A very nice set, Martin.
The light on the Woodpecker makes that my favorite image.
Looks like a very well kept laws and a good spot to shoot some poppies close-ups.

Nice shots one and all Martin! Love the shot of the little Merganser making that last bit of climb! The last has a real nice swoosh of color!

What a crazy assortment Martin!

1 is so pretty in that light, I do believe that's the first one I have seen
2 is such a wonderful image, it really does have it all, cuteness, a story, a protective Mom, really well done Martin
3 spot on techs, you might want to clean up the bottom right corner
4 is a nice tight peek into this bird's world
5 & 6, two very different shots, both are very pretty and a joy to look at.

Really nice work Martin, I enjoyed this set!

Beautiful WP on a beautiful perch in beautiful light Martin... BEAUTIFUL.
Hope the little Mergie made it up... cute shot.
#3 is an excellent exposure showing wonderful detail and nicely saturated color.
Beautiful lake under a very big sky, and I really enjoyed seeing the Poppies.
Hope all is well for you Martin.
