    thanks for looking!!

    have a good week.
     
  2. Stuning Raymond, an excellent job.
     
  3. Nice series you have here Ray. Well done.
     
  4. Great stuff,Ray. It's hard to pick which one I like best
    but I go with #3,4 for its nice soft lighting.
    Thanks for sharing.
     
  5. Great series Ray!!!! LOve the flicker with the flowers on the stump, breaks out of the ordinary!
     
  6. Great set Ray very nice.

    Phil.
     
  7. Beautiful shots Ray! Love the first shot.
     
  8. thanks everyone for the nice comments.
     
  9. As usual, a great series from you. I think No. 5 is pretty good as an environmental portrait... really tells you about the habitat of the subject very well.

    Great shots Ray. Number 1 is an immature Common Yellowthroat, which is a Warbler so you were right. I love the Flicker photos.

  12. thanks Maji, I appreciate your comments!

    Thanks Richard, I have found out also, it is a Male., hope he heads south soon.

    Wow, A 10! My best number would be a 6, but thanks for the encouragement.
     
  13. I like the wild stuff too.
    Fine set Ray!

    Great set Ray, I like the catbird. and the flickers.
     
  17. Beautifully done Ray..as usual.
    Quick question where were the "captive" raptors located. Is this someplace anyone can go to photograph?
     
  18. thanks very much Fred!

    thanks buddy, your recent falcon shots are amazing.

    thanks Holmes., I like the environment shots a lot, but they are not easy to come by.

    thanks!

    Thanks Bob.. these birds are in cages most of the time, but I pay them to bring them out for everyone to see and shoot. More info on my website., cold up there yet?
