    Happy Croc

    Very nice. From the head/facial conformation, I expect this was a pretty substantial animal. May I ask where the photo was taken?

    Brown bears at dusk

    Congrats on a really superlative series. I can't help but think that the bear in your photos looks like the one that just won the 'Fattest Bear' contest at Katmai Nat'l Park. See the story at (America's fattest bear has now been crowned).

    Brown Bears Shaking in My Presence

    Wow. Their shake is so powerful, it seems to twist the backgrounds on some of these photos. Wonderful behavioral presentations.

    Critique Puffins and Guillemots

    I see you've asked for a 'critique', so I will try my best: In my opinion, there is no such thing as a bad shot of a puffin. Thanks much for sharing these.

    One of my favorite birds, presented here with real craft.

    The King (in the wild)

    Odd to find a concoction of such appealing colors and yet come up with a creature that's not just a little creepy. Cool photo!

    Watch out! They're Indigenous!

    I knew of course how scarce they'd become after having been ravaged by the plume hunters years ago, but was unaware that they had been generally regarded as a non-native species in Florida. As you say, they're as iconic as alligators in novelty shops across the state. The birds above are...

    Watch out! They're Indigenous!

    Apparently recent research indicates that Caribbean/American flamingoes are likely native to Florida rather than migrant interlopers as had been previously widely reported. The news prompted me to review some pix of sub-adult birds I took a couple of years ago while camping at East Cape Sable in...

    A chain of cuteness. Nicely done on the whole series.

    You must share your recipe for 'Bug 'N Bear' repellent with us!

    Shake it Off(Bears)

    Mesmerizing photos. I'd like to think I'm a person who'd welcome a photo opportunity like either of these, but I have an immutable rule to stay out of the splash zone of large bears.

    Grizzly Bears May YNP

    Thank you for sharing these wonderfully grisly photos! Did you have to hike far to get these pix or are these venues fairly close to a road?

    A month in Ruaha & Serengeti Nat Parks- Tanzania. Pt 2

    No worries - absolutely worth the wait! Congrats on another spectacular series of photos. Sure, I've got some favorites among them, but each one is arresting in its own right.

    Late snowy owl

    Oh, thank goodness - I feared that the 'late' in the thread title meant 'deceased'. Happy to see that's not the case and very much enjoyed these terrific photos.

    Burrowing Owls Between the Rain

    Seeing an owl with dark eyes still creeps me out a little, but your photos of them are terrific.

    Merritt Island gators

    "It was not, however, till the second evening that I managed to catch sight of his ugly snout above the surface. I waited around, and on the third day I saw him suddenly come out of the water and heave his whole length on to a sandbank in mid-stream and go to sleep in the sun. He was certainly a...

    Cape Coral Residents

    Dour as a puritan preacher - these expressions are great. Thanks for sharing them here.

    Thank you. At this time of year the beaches of Cape Sable are primary nesting sites for American crocodiles in this part of south Florida. I'm struck with how well they're camouflaged with a wide variety of settings in which they're found. The croc in the last (#7) photo is kind of medium size...

    My neighborhood birds

    They migrate? By foot? I don't think I've ever seen one fly farther than fifty feet.

    My neighborhood birds

    I didn't know they came in two flavors regarding eye color - I only ever recall seeing them w yellow eyes. What a treat it must be to have such ready access to these engaging critters.

    Morning Pronghorns

    The last one is exceptional! A really terrific photograph.

    Truly spectacular. A wonderful photo.
  44. keirin


    Thank you. And I'll stay here where there's no danger of finding Grizzly Bears or Timber Wolves running about underfoot. Thanks much. I see you seem to have a pretty wide range of locales in Florida you go for pix - perhaps you might find a chance to extend it a bit to include Everglades Nat'l...

    My neighborhood birds

    I used to see Burrowing Owls around the velodrome in Cooper City, but I haven't been there in ages. They have such wonderfully stern expressions! Nice job.

    I think you're misinterpreting - seems to me that he's beckoning you nearer. You're only ever too close if you're inside the focus limit of your lens. Go ahead, advance a few steps - what's the worst that could happen? (insert winking smiley thing here). Nice capture.

    Surfing Cape Sable: I paddled out to camp at Cape Sable again 4.6, 7, 8. On Saturday, a much-stronger-than-forecast wind out of the WSW produced rough seas and some American crocodiles frolicked in the beach break. 1 - Seascape with crocodile.
