One of my dove photos just hit the first page of popular on 500px. First time any of my photos have gotten quite that far. Given that it was a from-the-hip shot without ANY planning or artistic goals whatsoever, I'm pretty stunned:

http://500px.com/photo/66945531?from=popular

UPDATE: Now it's the first image in the second row of the popular page! :D Pulse is 99.7. I wonder if it will hit the top row before it's pulse is knocked back at 24hrs...
Not only does he know his optics theory, he also shoots stellar images! Great shot and well deserved credit!

Thanks to all who post comments.  This thread updates so often that I miss comments posted.  I appreciate those who keep up with this on a regular basis.  Here are a few from a recent trip to Bombay Hook NWR, DE.
1DIV, 5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.
