Yet another heron.... spotted this one while out for a walk... very dim lighting just before sunset on a heavily overcast day.

Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) by alabang, on Flickr

The Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world.[2] It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.[2] In Anglophone Europe it is just called the Swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".

This is an other version of something I posted a while back. This tiny, 4 inch guy decided to climb one of the three water lilies on the lake, and the only one with a fresh flower.

Great image!   :D

Turkey Vultures in Great Falls National Park.  300mm f4 IS on a 1D Mark 4


REX46287h by RexPhoto91, on Flickr
I like #3 Tex.  ISO high enough apparently to offer good detail to his underside.  People don't often like Vulture images but I feel challenged sometimes to try and make them look good or to see the beauty in the beast!  Thanks for posting!

Thanks.  Setting sun at my back partially clouded. So mother nature provided directional light, a soft box, and a warming filter.  (and a model) I did compliment her with a little post processing.

Great Blue Heron
Oct 20 - Martha's Vineyard (Chappaquiddick)
60D 100-400 mm
I have a life-time supply of Heron picts, was looking for something different.

" a life-time supply of Heron pics "

I call and raise you two... LOL...
Ha! Ha! Ha! Looks like Chauncey raised you four!

Har..! I am counting Chauncey's spectacular photo as one. So I will match Diablo - except the photos have to be at least 2000 pixels on one edge, because manly men don't crop excessively.  ;)





I raise you three law breaking herons.

One who is clearly jaywalking! And two more that are taxiing down a runway without clearance from the tower!

Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala) by alabang, on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith  (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat  which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a  coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the  Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets,  they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are  mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged  termites.

Wow! It is very hard to be able to photograph this bird. You can hear it but can't see it. It is very shy. Congratulations! What did it take for you to get this picture?
