This is a gorgeous shot of the "Stilt" you have there!
Is it by chance the "Black-winged Stilt" [Himantopus himantopus ] ???
""They have long pink legs, a long thin black bill and are mainly white with a dark cap and a dark back.""
I gather this bird is in the avocet - stilt family... ;)
I would only do a small crop on top and at bottom to focus more on the bird... Maybe I will get around to that too ;)
TFS Kevin! Great shot! And I am glad your daughter is learning!
I see the date is last October...
Well it also shows in the photo! The frozen breath on the hairs below the deer's mouth! A crips shot Kevin!
I especially like the way you have worked here with the light!
It shows from the "white" tail to the "icicles" and breath!
Shows any and all why these deer are called WHITE tail deer, eh!
Now what the hey were U2 doing here in Fish Creek Park???
WOW Kevin, this has got to be the b747 of birdland! BIG bird indeed!
I love the moment that you captured here. The full wingspan out and right at the first moment of splash-down!
I would only fiddle a wee bit with the ratios etc. See WS.
I love how that barb looks like a third "paw" on this lark. What a lark! The close-up is a good presentation with detail that many folks will never see in reality.
I have done a small WS , hope you like it!
Thanx for sharing this joy-shot,
Bautiful bird, beautiful shot. Congrats.
beautiful picture and beautiful reflections, many compliments
Good picture showing all these pelicans busy preening. Very nice reflections. The quality of your pictures is getting better and better. TFS
Congratulations on your new camera...it's going to be so exciting trying it out to see what it can do. A nice capture of your Snow Geese, you don't see them around here very often. I think I would have cropped out the Canada Geese above as all their heads are missing. Looking forward to more great shots.
nice capture of this time of season,
great luminosity on the image
maybe it would be preferable that you include
the Canada Geese's too on the image (with the heads)
or you zoom more on the snow geese
like that, in my opnion it would be a more better image
nice capture, nice color;-)
