Thanks guys.  Not the best shooting season here now!

Jack

It's not  too bad here. The winter migrants are arriving and the leaves are falling so the little birds can't hide from us so easily. It must be tough on you guys in the frozen wastes of the far North with just an hour or two of daylight and just the odd polar bear for wild life shots.

I wish it were true but sadly I'll probably never get a shot of the big white guy.  I shouldn't complain because there is beauty in the snowy landscape and there are winter birds, just not enough of them. :)

I may have posted this a year or two back but it seems fitting here. ;)

Thanks Ryananthony.  I love chickadees and we have tons of them. :)

This blue tit, which I took yesterday, is one of our equivalents of a chickadee.

Osprey at Clear Lake, CA.  This was as close as it would tolerate me after a few minutes of slowly working my way through the trees.  The evil eye look.
