Haha That is anything but a graceful take off.

Found an old barn this week where hundreds of ducks were hanging out after a big snow storm.  After a couple days, the farmer plugged the barn opening you see in the picture with a mound of snow.  I can't blame him for not wanting 5 inches of duck poop on his barn floor  :)  The second image was made near the barn.  I like the simplicity of the winter covered field against the overcast sky at sunset.

Great Grey Owl came to visit during a snow at our place this winter.  I watched him successfully catch a field mouse under the snow after this pic - it was awesome to see.

I would like to ask what do you think about brightness of this image. Do you see it as too dark/too bright or OK? Especially in the rocks. I'm asking this because if I look it on my display (MBP retina) it looks OK, but if I look it on my older (cheap) display it looks brighter (actually too bright).

Have you calibrated both displays?

Kea in flight - shared in one other thread.

Awesome picture - I really like the angle the bird is flying toward you, and the color is great.

Gannet - West Auckland, New Zealand.

Hi, Menace. This appears to be a herring gull.

Hello dpc, 

Thanks for  you comment - I have checked my info again - check out the link below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australasian_Gannet

Regards.

Menace,
Always enjoy your pics, but have to agree with dpc..your pic is of a gull, not a gannet.  Look at the bill shape and coloration...not a blue-grey bill as seen on a gannet.  Also the head shape and eye is that of a gull.  Hope this helps.

Any comments or critique, good or bad, is highly welcome.

Nice set, but my favorite is the Siberean Jay - beautiful earth rust tones of the bird against the snow.


Black Crowned Night Heron in breeding plumage that I photographed yesterday afternoon.


Very nice!  How close were you to the Heron?

baby Great Horned Owl.... spring time is great

Yes it is. Especially before the trees fully leave and hide things.

Great - there is one baby in the nest I am watching.  The parents of the babies in your pic will be busier trying to keep all 3 fed and happy !
