This shot was taken back in June 2010. There are many of these Double-crested Cormorants in our area and often taken them for granted. It is one beautiful bird. I particularly like this shot with the bright eye and the shinning black feather against the morning sun.

Thanks Thang for hosting the thread. There are so many great images in this thread and I am enjoying them tremendously. Keep them coming ...

I always enjoy this thread. It's a great look back at some great shots. Here's mine - from the Alligator NWR this past July. And it was shortly after I bought the 15 yo 500 F4.5. Hand held from the yak...

Hello,
My humble contribution.
This one was taken in early October during the Elk Rut in Jasper National Park (Alberta, Canada).
It is kind of a dream shot for me. Most of the time I have a pre-determined idea of the shot I would like to have for a particular species. In this case, I wanted a Bull to be photographed in a meadow, with a nice green background, with the grasses frost covered, under soft lighting, etc.......
Sometimes everything works out and one is able to get want he/she wants. It was such a morning.
The shot was actually taken before the sun even made it over the surrounding mountain peaks so I was able to show the cold air, cool light in the shots.



Thank you for looking.

Shot with a $125 zoom lens, don't over rate your needs, use what you have to its fullest potential

The quality of imagery here is incredible and inspirational, I wish the very best to all of you!

I'm an extremely infrequent poster, but an avid reader. I wish I had more time to shoot, but medical school kinda demands all my time.

Here is a shot of an out of range American Avocet Goose Pond FWA in Greene County, Indiana. Shot on September 11th. It was a lifer for me!

Phenomenal images from some very accomplished photographers! It has been a good year.

To sit amongst the kings is an honour.

Here is my pick ... a present from Mother Nature on my birthday.

Good attitiude Karl. I keep telling myself I dont need more gear but more skill and practice.
Did you use a tripod on the orchid shot and was it in the wild? Its a nice one

Hmmm.. I must admit I've been having a pretty good year with the 7D/500 f4 + 1.4TC on the BushHawk, Thang, though I haven't been frequenting BC or OC lately, just staying up in my neck of Palos Verdes. So I have lots to share, which will come in upcoming posts. But here's one of my faves, from San Jacinto Wildife Area near Riverside; Mrs Harrier looked very photogenic in the wild mustard setting...

and then I was able to crawl a bit closer to her...

This was one of the best moments of my life. Watching three wild wolves in Yellowsone for many hours as they lounged around together. I have been obsessed with wolves since my encounter and i plan to head out to Yellowstone at the end of winter for a few weeks to snowshoe around the backcountry and track wolves.

Not wild Paul, local greenhouse I have been going to since I was a little kid I'm still like a 'little kid' when I go there, brings back lots of memories.
Yes this was off a tripod and manual focus, thanks and glad you liked it

Though I havenít 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 ĺ view osprey with extended talons. I decided on the kestrel for its uniqueness and one-of-the kind prey.

Hello everyone! Although my photography outings this year have been few and far between, one morning this past May was special. Watching 16 Wood Duck chicks make their initial leap from the nest box is something I'll never forget. This is one from that morning.

Fabulous images everybody!!
