Looking around for the bull before having lunch. This posting has great color and details. It looks sunny out that day.
The pines are nice in tha photo and the birds eye is fantastic, thanks for sharing Dave.

This is a sharp image showing a lot of detail, the eye, the claws, beautiful colours of its feathers.
Very well presented.
Well composed too.

Wonderful capture. Especially the colors and the light is very nice, an almost dream like composition. The pose of the bird is lovely and the POV is very nice. Nice sharpness and wonderful detail.

Well it's in the record books now :)
When the Bears returned that opening kick-off for a score, I thought my my Colts might be in for a long haul...NOT! The wet weather changed the face of that game.
Nice shot. I like the natural framing, good POV and the pose here :)
Well done mf.

Another great capture from you!
At first, i had no idea what you first sentence was about...but that's rather understandable since we probably don't watch the same sports ;)
Then, reading on, it came quite clear why that is the title of your shot...very nice. Indeed, the lovely bird does appear to be optimistic :)
The shot itsself is great and it present this red-bellied woodpecker from a great POV.
The BG is really nice, presenting it in a wonderful natural habitat. Good sharpness and lighting, too, all-in-all making a very beautiful composition.
Bravo and TFS

This is a very nice shot with superb lightning and environment. Details are very good too and so is this little light in its eye. I just wonder why you don't take your picture in a vertical way to have the whole bird in the frame. :) I didn't see this specie often, well done!

Great natural colours and a nice pose of this bird.
I used to watch its cousins nesting and living on Saguaros, but never got a chance to take a good shot at them. (They are too fast for my reflexes) :-)
