Not my best one but this shot definitely characterizes my shooting activity of 2010. A Night Hawk I've been trying to get a IF pic for many years. This one was so nice to show up during the day light.

You have to try harder.

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...

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.

I guess a BIF against a plain blue sky is not the most interesting necessarily for "regular" birds, but quite unusual for a hummer shot to catch em so high. Not the best, just one of my favs...

Hey Thang, you forgot to post your shot!

Although I've been concentrating more on landscapes and other subjects, here's one of my best for the year. The Black Skimmers in Orange County are some of my favorites to observe and photograph. Hopefully I'll be making the trek down again in 2011 in search of the "money shot"

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.

This is absolutely fantastic Tony!

Heres a image i liked. I left, gave up shooting images from a bird blind with my 300MM, and went walking with the other camera that had an 80-200 lens on it. When i spotted the deer family across a pond, i put a 2X on it. When the two fawns lined up along side mamma- i clapped my hands once, and clicked the shutter. Almost looks like a two headed fawn- except for the extra foot.

Jack – that’s a very nice shot for someone who doesn’t photograph wildlife much. Love that warm creamy background.

Tim – thanks for playing. the detail in this shot is amazing.

Mark – great wing motion and yet the eye is tack sharp. Love the light too!

Sheeter – nice shot. Zoo shots can be tough due to all the surrounding “man-made” environment but this one looks very natural!

Iowa2 – love that silhouette look of the feathers! Nice pose too!

Chad and Noelle – looking forward to what you will be postings!

Steve – super cute shot!

Tim – I know it’s tough to be able to post just one. That’s a great shot for sure. I missed my chance at these guys earlier in the year.

Tony – I cannot view your image! Please repost when you get a chance.

Eric – what a shot! Still waiting for my chance for an OIF opportunity.

Matt – I have only been to Yellowstone once many moons ago. I wasn’t as lucky as you though. Will need to revisit this magnificent location again soon! TFS.

Morris – Beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing with us your personal story as well. Sounds like you have had a very trial year. Best wishes to you in 2011 with great health and many great photos.

Mr Zoom – cool shot!

Ned – “manual focus” what’s that? Awesome job!

Randy – Osprey is one of my favorite birds to photograph in southern California. We have few pairs in the area and it’s pure adrenaline to photograph them.

Donald – beautiful shot with wonderful light! I hope you have it hung on your wall!

Socrate – your patience paid off big time. It’s indeed a rare IF shot of the Night Hawk. Don’t think I have seen one on FM before.

William – love the contrasting colors in this shot. But those lady bugs give me a “chill” though.

Collin – superb image and thanks for the story behind it.

Conrad – great shot man, as always! That shot should be on your wall. I can hear NG knocking on your door.
