Here's a couple. From a zoo sadly, as I don't have anything really long enough for for "proper" birding just yet! All taken on a 6D with a the 70 - 200mm.

This is a classic chauncey picture. He has done these before. He usually has more in the frame. Lovely picture. Actually I like all of them. The cormorant on the swan's back is classic!

rpt...to have one's work recognized is a huge compliment, thank you for that...there were two more but they obscured too much of the bird.    :-\

I'm new to this so it's more point and hope but I agree that it's really great when there is more artistry exhibited and of course everyone loves the humorous shots, whether young or old.  Great inspiration for me to try to emulate.

BTW, I never figured out how a quote gets inserted so I hope this is it for my first try.

Like Serendipidy I'm now heading back to try to get some more shots of what's available to me, which for now is little yellow birds in the willows and aspens.  At least I've managed to figured out that you make hay when the sun shines and you do the best with what you've got and try to be satisfied knowing it's your best effort.

This AM, cloudy and hiding in the branches so ISO 5000, unfortunately.  Seems to have been enjoying a Choke Cherry.

Just a sparrow but I think he's cute.  :)

One can find beauty in even the most mundane, it's all around us. We just have to stop and look. Some are lucky enough to occasionally travel to exotic places and get once in a lifetime shots, but for the other times, we can still make masterpieces out of the commonplace. 8)

Serendipidy, that's the essence of being at peace with oneself, enjoying what you have, contributing positively and being thankful because without health, it all unravels very quickly.  My wife keeps saying get a 1DX.  My reply - I'm quite thrilled with what I've got and the small challenges that remain.  However, I'm so thankful to have been able to give my daughter the D5100 and AF 70-300 and move up with the new 300 2.8!! Very indebted to my deceased mother for that.

Here's a cute hummer from a couple weeks back.

Thanks Jack.  :)

The picture was taken on the Thousand Island River just north of Montreal.
