Another sight most of us have seen but how many have stopped to take a picture? We really missed out. Great timing to get the one just landing. A wonderful diagonal composition of these two - almost silhouettes, but not quite.

Interesting silhouette image, nicely composed, and some movement with the landing bird. Nice how the open wing is lit.
I can just picture you enjoying the end of the day on the country road savoring the beauty of His creation. Tfs Richard

It is not easy to capture the beauty of things and creatures in the dusk, but you did it so well here. With a perfect timing shot you captured the silhouette of the bird just about to land on the wire and the other showing a perfect profile. I like a lot the beak of the guy in the right.
Congratulations and TFS

It seems ea new bird photographer in the frame!!..(pun intended)
Exceptional work here and to be honest its harder to capture an inflight at dusk than during the day...A very well planned capture and exceptional use of your knowledge to set up just right for this cracking shot...Keep at it Bob...Theres more to come yet I know.
All the Best

Nice picture of these birds spending the night together with you listening music... Sharpness of detail is amazing considering the darkness. Good composition and succesfull capture of action.

In spring the birds build nests to raise their young. Yes, But where do they sleep the rest of the year?
Good strong silhouettes Bob. Looks like they are hip-hopping in tune with your music.

superb silhouettes of these birds, i love the one before landing
or in his jump, of that bird, i love the way he is frozen
and his eye-contact with you, you did a superb shot of the birds,

It's funny that you raise the question because I've asked myself a long time how bird slept, if they did. We never see them asleep in pictures, very seldom in rest. This is a nice thoughtful picture and I agree, this is a nice moment, the landing of the bird on the wire. The movement is graceful, the feet ahead and ready to grab the wire. How I wish I could feel that! Thank you Bob,

The backlight display of feathers in the landing bird is amazing. It is still believing in final visual checks irrespective of nightlanding mode :). TFS.

Hello Bob. This is another example of what you have been saying about coming to you. Excellent note of the recliner and CD in your car while waiting for the catch. Not that visible as far as grain is concerned and I do shoot my D40 at 1600 at night a few times too. Thanks for sharing this image and the relaxing lifestyle that you are going through. Have a very nice day ahead and best regards. Jusni

Very atmospheric and elegant in its simplcity - the grain adds to the mood.

A nice capture at ISO 1600 without noise. My camera always gives me failure at these high ISO settings. May be it is due to the cheap lens. Excellent thoughts about where birds stay at night. Infact they do sleep in some high perch well hidden. Excellent composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Sorry I must have missed this one!
Don't know how though! This photo is very striking even from the thumbnail!
Excellent pose from the flying fellow.
Very original work Bob!
