Just a couple of swans in search of supper

I can't tell you how much I really love this image BW!  Composition is awesome, the charred tree, it's overall just a really great image, congratulations! :)

Thank you, Ken! I saw the image in the viewfinder after taking this shot and told the person next to me that I really love this owl  :D

Great Grey Owl


For some reason that owl reminds me of "Gandalf the Grey" (from Lord of the Rings) ... Man that owl has so much character ... superb image ... Great job.

Great shot, seems somehow to remind me of Marvin. ;D

How did you get the shot? In the wild?

Cheers Brian

Here is a White Cheeked Bulbul (Pycononotus leucogenys) ... this guy (or gal) was perched on the tip of a branch singing during a nasty dust storm ... the brown background is the dust storm but using a better beamer (on 600EX-RT) helped isolate the bird and make the background look a lot better than the horrible dust storm my eyes could see.
Image made with:

Nothing too startling here, just a Siskin Squabble, a lone Siskin, a Robin and a Blue Tit attack:

Grey heron. Bumped into this guy while walking in the harbour near the fishing docks. He really wasn't all that shy, I suppose the fishermen there feed him a fish occasionally.

Canon 6D + 70-300L @300mm, f/5.6.  Shot in the middle of snow storm, so the color is muted (but in a nice way)
