Wonderful photos all, very impressive. Here is my humble entry, taken on a cold, damp day on the Washington coast. I think the DOF removes the world from the subject just as the subject seems unimpressed with the dismal day and goes about the normal business. I haven't posted much, this year has gotten away from me. I hope to post a lot more in the coming year.

Wow! It's really great to hear myself say that word so often as I look through an internet thread. I hope to see it going strong through the new year! I have much to learn from you all, but here is my best from this year to help keep this great thread going.

My two best, both were taken on a safari in the Selous, Tanzania this summer. I would really recommend it as a destination. Not as much game as some places but there are very few vehicles, we watched the lions on several occasions (once with 2 week old cubs!) and the wild dogs and we were the only people there, sometimes another vehicle from the same lodge would join us. On a busy day we saw two other cars! For these I used a 20D with a Canon 100-400 IS.

Ok one more, technically not my best, but I couldn't resist!

Not the most challenging of subjects, but it's one of my first tries at wildlife and it came out pretty decent.

Not sure if this is my best,but it was my most exciting encounter with a bird last year. I was shooting Finches feeding on berries last August when this Coopers Hawk landed 30ft. away from me. I guess Finches are pretty good eatin' for a Coopers. Vern

So many amazing shots..... I'm really not good enough to post in this thread, but why not...

Background story. I started shooting with a dslr last year. I had not held a slr for probably about 8 years in my hands & every shot I took made me almost cry. I would try, look at them & get so upset the camera would end up in the closet for a month. I'd try again - same result.... Many mistakes & "stupid" questions later....

I suffer from debilitating headaches & is therefore often not capable to getting places. Luckily we have a backyard filled with birds & squirrels. I've been working on "issues" with them as my subjects. The cost of me feeding them.

For weeks I'd been trying to get a shot of the Western Scrub Jay which visits our home. To no avail. So I was working in Manual mode on my natural light setup for our resident squirrels & feeding our Love Birds with the camera on my hip - when the Scrub Jay announces it's presence. I got two shots in. Here's the one where I got the complete bird...

It's called "The Thief" as it was stealing the food of this little guy/gal... Taken during a hot spell with super high humidity here in Los Angeles

http://lilknytt.zenfolio.com/img/v1/p254034045-4.jpg


I guess these can be considered my favorite ones from this year - but that's a hard decision based more on emotions & stuff related to taking the shots, rather than the perfection of the shots......

Humbly presented by Lil, who's most humbled by present company....

2007 was an off year for me. Didn't shoot much but this is my favorite out of what I did captured.

Least Tern nesting with two chicks hidden underneath.
This was in June up at the Least Tern nesting grounds at the Santa Ana river mouth North side.

Happy New Year everyone!
