Mute Swan.....



Thanks for looking.

Stunningly beautiful portrait Harv. The pose is perfect and the light is amazing. I would put this on my living room wall.

LOL. Speaking of Harry, here are a few shots of him swallowing a Tilapia I helped him catch several days ago.


Hey, Harry the Heron is back! Nice shots serendipidy.  :)
I was missing him. Thanks.

You know what else I miss? Gary's eagles and wild life shots!

Gary, we are missing the samples of your skill!

It was discovering anything 1DX and Garry's eagles that brought me to CR and then when I went to show them to a friend they were gone. 

Seems wherever humans congregate there are problems of one sort or another.  I used to think we could take a lesson from the chickadees and then I saw two of them fighting over a little bathing pool.  Generally though, CR is a pretty decent place thanks to the likes of Serendipidy to mention just one name.  And this is one of the best threads, pretty warm and fuzzy.

Jack, thank you for those very kind words. I used to frequent other websites, but now spend most of my time here. There are so many great people who are helpful and give great advice. The photos posted on this site are so amazing. I also was blown away by Gary's wildlife and bird photos. I do miss him and his shots, but I guess all good things end sometime.

Talking about nature, 2 weeks ago I discovered a mother duck with 6 babies in the canal by my house. The father must have been killed and she may have an injured wing. Over the next few days, there were 5 then 4 and now only 2 babies left. I feed them bread every day since they seem so hungry. Another mallard pair arrived about a week ago and they harass and attack the mother and her 2 ducklings. Several times I saw the male almost drown the baby ducks. I hope they survive. Nature can be very cruel.

I almost never have a level horizon. Usually always off about 1 degree (usually must rotate counterclockwise to correct). I have pondered this and some thoughts:
1) my head or eyes or brain is tilted
2) I rotate the camera slightly when I press the shutter
3) maybe the sensor is rotated slightly in relation to the viewfinder
4) you just can't consistently be perfect

It cannot possibly be number 4. And it therefore cannot be 1 or 2 either.

This means the reason must be number 3.  ;D

What perfect logic. ;D

serendipidy, how cool - I saw the same kind of thing back in the summer of '12 - they're vicious little fighters, aren't they?:


Nice capture.
Yes, I was surprised how they went at each other with their big feet and claws.
Kind of humorous to watch. ;D

Nicely done Sporgon...sometimes the horizon can be tricky can't it?


Thanks Northstar. Yes it can, in fact I have an alarming inability to hold the camera level. I think it's probably because I tend to look through the camera with my head tilted to one side. I normally have to rotate my images anti clockwise, and it's surprising just how much image area you loose if you have to rotate even 1 degree.

These 2 moorhens got into a big fight several days ago. I think it was over a female. ;D

Awesome shot - I can't believe you were so close.  All of the night herons I've run into are really shy.
Not if it is serendipity's heron Harry  ;)
Anyway, lovely shot willhunt. You should put a copyright notice on your pictures.

rpt...What are the advantages of putting a copyright notice on your photos? And how do you do it?

Really great Heron photo. Nice work. If he hangs around, he'll need a name.
