  10. Hi Keith.

    Nice capture! I think its pretty unusual to see them very far from water. You got pretty close! Looks like you're finally getting some summer. :) :)

    That's a dandy shot of a killdeer Keith.
    Killdeer are often found far from water, preferring to nest in open fields, meadows, and even large lawns. When I was a kid, we used to have to chase them out of our outfield to play baseball. My former neighbor used to stake out nests in his 2-acre lawn so that he wouldn't accidentally mow the nesting sites.
     
  16. Thanks everyone, appreciate you taking the time to post your comments! Everyday is a new day. LOL

    Sharp & colorful. The bird seems to pop out of the image. I like it.

    Hi Keith,

    That is a beautiful image, let me say what I like so much about it; The bird is super sharp. I'm a big fan when it comes to sharpness, I like seeing things very sharp. From the smallest feather of its tail until its head it is very sharp and detailed. I find that the unsharpness of the grass in front of the bird and the blurry background is fantastic it enhances the sharpness of the bird some more.
    This sure is a striking image, very nice work !!! 10/10 :D

    Take care

    Johan
