I figure the other one is 6 pages long, and I'm tired of going to the last page :lol: .

So, I guess I'll start things off by saying that I took the day off, because it looked like we might have some sun this AM and I wanted to find the Swans in the Sunlight. Well, the first thing I found were some Canadian Geese, and even at a distance they were loud:

I got lucky with the sunlight, actually had to avoid some shots as I had birds circle over me and couldn't shoot into the sun. You can also see from a couple that they came closer today. What a nice day to shoot. And suggestions, criticisms, critiques, grips, pass them along please. If I don't like them, I'll just ignore them :wink: .

Hey, Gordon, welcome, glad to see you here, a fine place it is tuning out to be.

Thanks for the nice compliments, the birds are doing all the hard work, I just stand there and push bottons :wink: . I have gotten lucky the last couple of weeks, now I just have to hope I can keep the luck going.

El, Superbo, Harris, but I think there is something wrong with the color. That bird don't look to "blue" to me.........

What I am waiting for is when you harness up a couple of these and have them take you water-skiing. How about you do that during the gathering next month and Frank can get an "action shot"?

Sounds like a plan to me........

OK here is mine from today, the reason they are called front yard birds, this beast roams the backyard. Notice she has his #5 Philadelphia Eagles jersey on.
