I am particularly drawn to pictures of birds and this one is beautiful.

Well this thread has been kick started with some very nice shots! This was from Sunday morning with my Canon 5DMKII. The lens is a very affordable super wide14mm from Rokinon ... the same lens is also branded B&W, Bower and Samyang).

Icicles on the front porch railing and neighbor's tree. Nikon D7000, Nikon 85mm macro, ISO 200, 1/160 sec, f/10 to f14. They're small, at most an inch and a half long.

Serendipity

This afternoon I was in the backyard experimenting with camera settings while taking pictures of birds in flight to see what got best results. Most of the birds I photographed were American Crows, Turkey Vultures, and Red-Shouldered Hawks. However, when I downloaded the pictures onto my computer to see the results, I was surprised to discover that one of 'vultures' I had photographed was this...

Florida Winter Sunset

Photo I took of a recent sunset. In post-processing, I tweaked the contrast and brightness to emphasize the rays.

Another photo of a Great Egret. This one has a broken right wing. It is an old injury. The egret can still fly if it needs to.

Snowy Owls are usually a resident of the arctic but this year has seen a historic migration to the lower 48. I found this one on Chincoteague Island here in Virginia. They are one of the largest owls in the world and typically feed on lemmings in the arctic tundra and it is thought that when there is a significant drop in the lemming population they will head south in search of food. As you can see this one obviously has been a successful hunter. Check out the size of those feet!

Beautiful photo, Skyward. Enjoyed the other photos on your web site also.

Ronstar, I expect a photo of the stash when you find it (with the GPS location embedded in the EXIF metadata ).

Southern Geek - I'll resume my search on the next trip. I'll embed some secret tags along with coordinates when I post the photo of my findings.

Here's a bird's nest with what looks like a snowbird in it

Reaching back into the archives for a favorite from about 4 years ago. We have a well known area where the bighorns can be seen from the side of the road on a fairly regular basis. One day I climbed some pretty steep terrain to follow them as they slowly moved away up the hill.
