These are all great!

Here's a close-up to a rock pigeon I took just over a year ago:

I specifically remember someone complaining about their camera and their inability to get a good shot.....

Idea

I remember, it was Curlybird.  She must have gotten a new camera for Christmas. Yes

Yes

Thanks, Lyceel, and no, Matt, I did not get a new camera for Christmas - I got it last July for my birthday!  I CAN get decent shots, as long as the birds cooperate......Wink

This isn't that close - but considering the last picture I took of a snipe it was hardly visible.

Hey, Seattle - BTW, have you checked out the Starr Ranch BNOW website lately?  The babies have all fledged now, but the Mom and Dad are back in the cavity "going at it" again - looks like she's going to have another clutch of young'uns this season!

I've been watching the hummingbird - little mamma is so sweet.  I knew that the babies had fledged but not that mom and dad were back.  Time to watch them again - they were the best parents

Went to the Wetlands Park here in Vegas this afternoon.  Crawled through the weeds to get close to this guy and parked my ass 10-12 feet from him for about 45 minutes hoping to catch a shot of him nailing a frog.  Didn't happen.  Took this with my 70-200.  Image is uncropped.

Not a great photo by any means.... the sun was against me, as you can see. However, it's the closest photo I've ever gotten of a Northern Flicker. This one is a female.
