ISv,
Great shots!
I like the red crested cardinal in Hawaii.  I wanted to catch one for a pet, they're cute.  Thanks for the beautiful shot.

I haven't had much time for photography recently, but this one turned out pretty well!  A hummingbird coming by and visiting on a hot summer day  8)

Great one Talys! BTW at short distance the hot, lifting up air is not making big difference...

Thanks!  They visit in the summer heat a lot, because our patio has flowers that my wife diligently waters twice a day, and stocks feeders with fresh sugary hooch  ;D  Flowers get to be slim pickings when it doesn't rain much, and we had the driest May on record this year.  Our flowers are popular for the honey bees too, got a couple of good photos of them that I'll have to post up!

Bees in photo - good! But bees also sting - not good, my leg is just getting back to normal after such an incident last week :(!

Better PP this time. I use to under-expose when shooting to keep the highlights in better control and sometimes just forget to compensate in PP  :-[!

+1 and Talys you too.  I also got out this weekend to Miquelon Lake Provincial Park, Alberta.  It's a reasonably large but very shallow lake that's alkaline and so it attracts quite a variety of birds.

Haven't posted anything for a long time  8)

...

Excellent picture Robin, beautiful light and perfect exposure, combined with an almost intimate composition!
Did you have your camera remotely triggered? The perspective suggests the camera was very close to the puffins... and I'm not sure those puffins would be so at ease with a person within arms length ;)

Few from recent Costa Rica trip

Nice!


Love the blue.... that colour seems to jump out at you!

+1 on that, but they are all very nice!

Two from today - the first one at short distance - no atmospheric influence. For the second one I knew it's not going to be good (at least up to now I did'n succeed with these conditions) - about 30 meters/yards, very hot day, shallow layer of water, I call it "low quality air". On other hand it's my first White - faced Ibis (see the red iris, it separates it from the Glossy Ibis0

First one is really endearing ;) those two birds cuddling together...
Second one, although I understand what you mean with "low quality air", to me quality (and picture) look very good! (I've had worse in sunny, hot conditions) Maybe not at pixel peeping magnification, but who cares  ::)

Very nice Talys / Phil; I like the composition with the bird "sandwiched" between those OoF green leaves!
