Hi Alan.
Very nice, but you are not wrong, does it come with a volume control? That is very loud! :)

Cheers, Graham.

Nice ones.  Here's something more than pink!

Hi Click.
A really nice shot of a Canada? goose, great composition, colours, everything, even the bird looks neat and tidy.

Cheers, Graham.


Hi Graham,

Thank you very much for your comments and kind words.

In this beautiful fall season, birds are starting to leave us for the winter.

I have found this one, while kayaking this morning.  :)

Good one!

Hi dpc.
Nice shots, I like the way the back of one looks like it could be pinstripe detail on the hood of a custom car.

Cheers, Graham.

Snow geese, showing both the white and blue forms. :)


Thanks, Graham!  :)

Hi dpc.
Nice shot, it is just a shame that signs are more useful to us at the side of the road rather than in the fields where a bird may look towards the road rather than in to the field to see its prey!

Cheers, Graham.

Not sure what hawk this is. Possibly a dark morph ferruginous? If anyone knows, please inform me.  :)

Thanks, Graham! Yes, it would have been a boon if the bird had been facing me, especially when it decided to fly off. A bum shot isn't too attractive.  8)

Hi Stuart.
Very nice proper portrait! It is a real nuisance when the wildlife comes TOO close.  ;D

Hi Jeff.
Very nice shot, it looks like your secret recipe for additional correction works really well.

Cheers, Graham.
