Incredible photos, everyone! Here are my contributions... I wasn't sure if it was okay to contribute multiple images, but as it is approaching the end of the month, I figured what the heck. All the photos were taken in the Kimberley of western Australia this summer at Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary... Quite an amazing time there.

Pair of long-tailed finches preening each other near sunrise. These finches were busily feeding nestlings... I felt quite fortunate to get a few images of respite and intimacy between the birds.

Jabiru stork fishing in Bluebush Wetland. I liked the effect of the reflections and the sandstone glow showing in the shallow wetland water here as the male stork fed... Quite a striking bird.

Female red-backed fairy-wren. Although the males of this species are more bold in color, I really liked the effect of the fairy-wren perched in the midst of branches and grass, echoes of her tail and legs in the angles of the vegetation.

Mr. Elk was posing for me in the Hoh rainforest, Olympic National Park back in October.

This thread is always a true pleasure to view and no matter how busy I get throughout the year, and how little posting I do on the forum (which might be zero this year!) I always make time for thsi thread. I didnt get out shooting nearly as much as I had hoped or wanted to, but did manage to get a few keepers.

I guess this is the one I am posting as my best of the year. ISO 1600 which I don't love, but I like the action.

Wow, lots of good stuff here. My contribution is from a recently completed trip to Antarctica. I call it "I am Penguin! Hear me roar!"

Happy 2010 everybody

Actually not my best, but I love this shot for how it was taken. I have several feeders in my front yard and this guy stopped by one morning in hopes of a meal, but not from the feeder, from the little birds that were feeding there. This was taken while in my PJ's in my living room, out through a closed window.

ETA yes that is my green windstar as the background parked in the driveway.

Great shots, everybody. Here's another one. It's a severe crop, but I'm happy with it.
