    More pure excellence Mike. Wish I knew how you do it. Steady hands, a good eye, and a good grasp of composition and exposure skills might have something to do with it I guess.... :wink:

    Excuse me, but I must go throw my camera and lenses in the trash. The gear may be fine, but after seeing Mike's consistently brilliant results, I realize I suffer from an absence of talent.

    How do you do it Mike?

  11. Thanks Bryan I appreciate your comments and for takign the time to look
     
  12. Mike, I'm out of superlatives. Regards.
     
  13. Thanks for sharing these excellent images Mike. As always they are first rate.
     
  14. WOW

    Simply superb, very crisp and clean
     
  15. Thanks you from me and my little friends, soon they will want modeling fees
     
  16. Jay
    Thanks he was in the perfect light
     
  17. A no big trick, these guys make nice little static models, when they come by, the key is like you with your eagles be patient letting them come and get used to you waiting for them to land where you want and being ready.
     
  18. Well the reason they are in the front yard is cause this beast roams the back yard.
    original.
     
  19. Ah thanks Gale I think everyone here has the talent just need the right oppurtunites.
     
  20. Neil
    Stop it wont be able to put my hat on anymore.
    Like I said to Frank, spending the time to get to know these guys habits and spending hours out there waiting for them to land in just the right spot, any one could do it.
