Let's continue with the tradition. In previous years, Laura Hughes would start the thread around this time of the year. Mr. Zoom picked it up in 2009. Haven't seen anything from either one, so here we go...

As usual, please post ONE of your very best from 2010 along with a brief description of THE shot. Please refrain from posting multiple images. 2010 is not quite over yet so you still have time to get your best of the best...

Show off your works so we all can enjoy!

Thang, thanks for starting this wonderful post

It's a tough choice to pick just one photo, Technically this is not one of my best photo, but, I'm going with the photo because it has the most impact to me, while I was photographing this adolescent Reddish Egret, I watched him squawk and pester his mother for at least 30-45 minutes, I'm sure he was telling mom that he was hungry and mom was bound and determined to teach this little guy a lesson in life on how to hunt and feed for himself, he constantly picked up this twig and kept throwing it in the air and looking at his mom, and it seem like he was saying to her "look mom I can't catch anything but this stupid twig, now feed me" I't was very amusing to watch and neat to see the interactions between these two, not too long ago I only hope to see a Reddish Egret, now I was able and honored to witness this behavior sequence unfold.

Happy Holidays to All

Chad

Well, we are in the middle of a rain & wind storm, with rain predicted for the next seven days. On such days, I like to play around with old images to see if I can create something "artsy".

So, I will go against the grain for this forum and post a N&W artsy creation.

Iíve never been able to choose a single photo as one that represents my years best. This has been a terribly difficult year for me and I can see the gap in quality as I fraught to keep my self going. This first photo was taken right in the middle of that gap and Iím amazed that I could hold the 1/50 exposure at 180mm in my condition at the time. It was pure determination and Iím very proud that I pushed myself out and still took photo. In the end I believe photography was a big part of my cure and Iím happy to report that I have left the mess in the past.

I suggest you start shooting wild life if this is what you came up with :-)

This would be mine. I was lucky enough to have this bird hold still for me just long enough to hit the shutter. I think because it's manually focused is one of the reasons I am proud of this one.

You have to try harder.

I believe I posted this one earlier this spring. Costa Rica afforded me several opportunities to snag some really fun pics. I think this is my favorite, though.

This is one of my favorite snake species, the Black-speckled Palm Pitviper. Arboreal vipers have always held a fascination to me because they're so beautiful, and this one is particularly rad. What a treat it was to see such a fragile and exotic looking snake in its natural environment! I lived in Costa Rica for ~4 months last spring, and we found this snake in the last couple weeks. I had resigned that I probably wouldn't find one if I hadn't seen one already. A friend out on a birding hike was the one who spotted this snake. He let others of us know its location and we went out and carefully bagged it for some later photos. In the cool morning, we did the shoot while the snake was a bit more slow. I have never worked with such a photogenic animal. It would coil into gorgeous poses and then freeze for minutes at a time. And, though venomous and in need of care and respect, it never even offered a threatening stance, tongue flick, huff, or anything. It really seemed to take everything in stride. After the shoot, we released it exactly where we caught it; grateful for the time and grateful that the snake was so accommodating for our interests.



Thanks for looking.

-Collin

Thanks for starting this thread Thang, it will be very cool to see the very best of 2010 in one place.

This is one of my most recent images and quickly became my favorite for the year... It was just one of those moments when everything came together and I was ready to capture it.
