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.

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.

Kirk – great shot. I can see why it’s becoming your favorite. The lighting, pose, eye contact…are perfect – everything truly “came together” in this shot! I have been trying to get something like this of the night heron over the years but haven’t been very successful!

Mabidally – wonderful moment in time! This shot definitely captures the struggle between life and death! Great lighting and detail but most of all, I love the eye-contacts between the hunter and the hunted!

Valjr – great pose, lighting, and background. The colors are terrific as well!

Adam – nice shot! How close were you to the bird?

Lora – awesome shot – love the wing motion and the feather tail spread. The pose definitely made the shot!

Kevin – nice work on being able to get so close to a very colorful bird. The kingfishers in our area are very skittish - even with the 600mm + TC, I haven’t been able to get anything near this quality. TFS

Cincy – nice capture of the interaction between the LesserYellow Legs.

JayT – how are you doing buddy? I am still undecided on which ONE shot to pose. It’s a tough choice. I recognize this shot/location! Glad you were able to fly down in time before they were all gone. Gotta love the magical colors at SJWS! Nice work.

Sean – nice pose! We So Cal folks don’t have the opportunities to photograph BE. Therefore, I have fully enjoyed every single BE post on this forum over the past few months.

Kingfishphoto – that’s truly a rare sighting of a double-headed fawn. Got to be the first in this forum!

Gene –great shot sir. I am still searching for a great white egret in plumage form. We have lots of GBH nesting activities in the area but not of the great white. I need to go out more…

Kiran – I have always enjoyed your works over the year! This shot is no exception! Superbly capture in every way! Gotta love that tender moment between mother and child.

Tom – I am a fan of buttery smooth background and this shot has it! Great eye-contact between the bird and the photographer! Nice shot sir!

Mark – that’s one hell of a tough shot, especially when made with a “lowly MKiii autofocus”. The only other person who could pull this off is Mr. Jody!

Nello – you crack me up man. Perfectly capture of the fastest bird in the world! Taken with Mark’s “lowly MKiii”?

WOW! What a collection of great photos! This is not as good as most in here, but it's one of my favorites from my trip to L&D 14 early last March.

Though I haven’t been around nor have done much photography in the past 6 months, I did manage to get some keepers in the earlier part of the year. It boiled down to the kestrel w/ a splitted-tail lizard or the ¾ view osprey with extended talons. I decided on the kestrel for its uniqueness and one-of-the kind prey.
