    Very nice series Mike. I'm starting to take a few more yard bird / creature shots and I'm learning that it isn't easy to get everything just right. These are good examples for me to study. :smile:
  6. i always know what to expect when I visit one of your threads and this one doesn't disappoint! Like Gale, I really like the dove shot. You capture them in a way that really showcases their beauty. Great job on all of these!!
  7. Wondelful images Mike, the SB did a great fill-in job.
  8. Your small bird pictures are always a treat and this one didn't disappoint. Very nice well lit and taken series of picture. Love the variety.
