Great owl shots! Looks like my morning jaunt was a little wetter here in SoCal.
This little guy tried without success for twenty minutes to swallow this fish.

Thanks Oof!  You're shot of this little guy is amazing!  Birds never cease to amaze me!  I can't believe he could even hold a fish that size from breaking loose of his grip!  Great and unique capture!

All the best,
Ken

Couple birds from Florida...
Thanks.
Great Capture, nice detail... I've lived here in Florida a long, long time.  I've never seen one with those markings!  Very cool!

i have just started with bird photography in my backyard.

i don´t have the reach that some here have (so i have to crop a lot) and i have a lot to learn about bird photography.

the birds here are not that colorfull as in other regions of the world .... but it´s fun.
Lovely pictures. Could you share your shooting parameters and lens used?

i have just started with bird photography in my backyard two days ago.

i don´t have the reach that some here have (so i have to crop a lot) and i have a lot to learn about bird photography.

the birds here are not that colorfull as in other regions of the world .... but it´s fun.










Awesome images in this series, Malte!  Congrats, they are really beautiful!  What bird is this?  The woodpecker I know, but I'm not familar with this other bird.  Looks like a cross between some sort of Titmouse and a Warbler and a Blue Jay!  So pretty!  Love the line down the breast too, great images!
