We live in a very remote area but in spite of my warnings my brides "welfare system" makes them a willing subject. I wouldn't quite call them a pet but they have become a lot more tolerant of us.

A couple of nice looking images Bob. Nice to have such critters visit your yard.

Thank you for your compliments. Very fortunate to have the lighting make the background of the river work.

Beautiful shots of a beautiful animal Bob. The saturation looks a little strong for my taste. Wonderful light you are getting this winter.

Thanks for you input about the saturation. I went back and forth on that in the PP and it seems like I ended up at the point where I backed it off any it looked flat and if I went the other way it looked over saturated. What I used for a tie breaker was PSE11's auto enhance feature. I left it where the auto feature put it but it may boil down to individual taste where no one is wrong.
The light was great yesterday and we are now at the point where the amount really starts to snowball.
