Clouds at sunset. What do you see?

A lady kissing a frog?
A panther taking a bite out of the sun?
I love the panther eating the sun! Great capture!

Looks like a Shark getting ready to swallow the sun to me, it even has the tail fin behind it! :D

Swedish sunset in March this year. It was a fantastic evening!

EXCELLENT! ... the in camera HDR of Canon 5D MK III is the best of any camera I've used, be it Nikon or Sony.
Agreed, surprisingly good!  I like this one too!  Beautiful color...

Great shots everyone!

Here's one of my first attempts at birds. This little fellow (parus major) stopped by this morning.

Canon 7D, 70-200 2.8 MK II with a Kenko 1.4 extender, f4 1/250 ISO 100

Nice job Phillip!

Here's a few taken with the 600mm IS II F4 on a 5D Mark III.  All shots hand held without color modifications

Enjoy!

Two Cactus Wrens - note fruit juice (prickly pears from cactus) around their bill.  Their call is most unique and easy to ID as it sounds like a car having a tough time starting up on a cold morning.  Since 1931, they have been the Arizona State bird.  All shots taken in southern California.

American Kestrel (11848) by Revup67, on Flickr


Townsend's Warbler (11679) by Revup67, on Flickr

Note rows of "narrowly" drilled holes and protruding sap which attracts insects as well as Rufous Hummingbirds (dependent on season and regional location).   The Sapsucker returns for its dinner (sap and insects) while they cling to the sap.

The Ruby-crowned Kinglet (male) with its crowned raised.  The bird is next to impossible to find (though of Least Concern)..tiny and well camouflaged within the branches seeking aphids, caterpillars and the like.  The timing has to be precise as its crown is typically flattened and shows as sort of a red speck on its cap.

Nice job Rev!  I love that in the composition of the 1st image that both the Wrens are looking the same direction, nice!  I also love the Kestrel image, I'm partial to them, as you may remember!  Nice series, the sunset image is great too!  Well done!  :D

Tri Colored Heron Portrait~

Wonderful shot. That creamy background is awesome...really helps enhance the subject. Getting that kind of background was one of the key reasons I got the 600/4, it really does wonders for subject isolation.
Thank you Jon!  I appreciate your comments.  The 600/4 and the 300/2.8 are both on my list... just for that reason too!  Well, the 600mm for the reach of course too!  These were with the 70-200 2.8 II.  I haven't taken her out for awhile, I've been shooting a lot more this year with my 100-400mm since picking up the 5dIII last Christmas.  The 5dIII made my 100-400mm like a whole new lens!  I was getting ready to sell it because I got better results with my 70-200 on my 7d than I did with the 100-400mm.  Glad I bought the 5d3 first!  Thanks again!

We're having a snowy owl invasion in Maine -- had bad luck with the weather so far, this is what i got. Canon 70d + 400mm 5.6L
Beautiful! I'm jealous... There are supposed to be snowy owls in Ontario where I live nut I have never seen one, let alone get a picture like that! Congratulations!

I'm jealous to Don!  I've been looking all over Central Florida and haven't spotted one yet...  :(

So far we have seen 4 snowy owls out here. There is a report of one on Bermuda !
PS. I think that photo is of a young female.

Beautiful shot Vern.

Agreed Click!  That's the kind of image I expect to see in my Bird Guide Books!  Very well done Vern!
