  2. Wow, that guy in the second pic bears a striking resemblance to Gene Simmons... have a little fun with PhotoShop, and you could even make the face paint look right. :) 

    Nice captures, Patrick. Especially the first one!
     
  3. Hey Patrick, I really like the first image. Very nice capture.

    Patrick,

    That first one is awesome. :D  I'll have mine up in a little while. Nice having such willing targets right here in town huh?

    Regards,

    Patrick, that first shot is great. You can really see how they change the camber of their whole body for takeoff and landings vs. flight.

    Love those pics Patrick,

    The first one and the feathers are great and the tounge sticking out yelling on the second one. Great captures.

    Love the colors on the third. Why are ducks so hard to get.

    Cheers

  12. Incredible photos...
    Everyone here is posting amazing photos of birds, and the closest I can get to them is when I watch YOURS on my laptop...
    C'mon... what's the secret? Are your birds trained for people contact? Do they make a living out of it?
    What :?: :shock: :?
