  2. These are great shots Dave. I really like the background color in number 6 and the whole stance of the bird in number 5.

    Hey, Dave, glad to see Stumpy is doing OK and looking fabulous! Looks like you and he are developing a nice relationship, too.

    Love the wing pattern on #5.

    Thanks Kees. I was trying to go for something different, but he always likes to stand in the same manner. I'll teach him to try something different one day. :biggrin:

    Thanks Pia...yeah I'm glad that Stumpy is surviving. I think he's found a home at this little pond, so I will visit him quite often.

    Thanks Gary. I'm trying to work on getting my f stop a bit higher to get some more detail...of course that means I have to really watch the camera shake though. :smile:
     
  6. Another fine series. Nicely done.
     
  7. Hi Dave,
