Two juvenile Black Skimmers at sunset - Martha's Vineyard , taken last summer, I am hoping they return this year.
(there is a Peregrine falcon around the nest area, may scare them away )

60D
100-400mm at 300mm ISO160 F5.6, 1/800

Jeff,

What a stunning photo! I love the colors and composition. I'd hang that on my living room wall. Great work. :)

Two shots of black-browed albatross skimming the waters by our ship in Antarctica. In the "pair" shot, I particularly like the way their eyes are level but the wings are tilted.

Now there is something you don't see every day ! Nice !

+1...doubt I'll ever get to Antarctica.

Fantastic shots, everyone. Great to have new posters. I haven't contributed for awhile so I'll add a few.

Here is a photo I took of one of the famous Tower of London Ravens.

There are also Ravens in Baltimore ;D

Hi, guys! This is my first post. Hope you like it.

Beautiful shot. I really like the composition, the color and ambience, and the star burst effect.

Welcome to CR. Hope to see more of your photos. :)

I'm so sorry to see that it is in B&W.
It should have been so beautiful and spectacular in "real" - astonishing colors...


That's quite Ok endiendo, that's what makes Photography so interesting & attractive, we see a scene the way we want to, and all opinions are valid.

So this scene is just for you.

Antarctica is an amazing place, needs a Phase One to do it justice I think, but the thing that surprised me was the actual lack of colour, it's pretty well shades of Blue & White, which is why it converts reasonably well to B&W.

Gorgeous! They are both nice but I love color. Great work, as always, Edward. :)

Heron Combat (over a small tilapia)
Taken yesterday in stormy weather with 30 mph winds. 5D3, 70-200Lii, Tv 1/1250, ISO 1000, f/2.8
Harry was fishing with me when a younger intruder arrived. A small tilapia was caught and then the battle began. The fish got away and Harry chased off his rival. Poor light and fast action contributed to poor IQ and not sharp images, but I hope you like them anyway.

...But certainly not as tame as Don's nuthatch!  WOW. But maybe I can change that :(

Jack

+1...Good luck Jack.

I once thought about trying to copy Don's bird feeding hand technique with Harry the Heron, but then that long sharp pointed beak made me decide against it. ;D
