    Lovely set Dao. I especially like the YBSS shots. :smile:
  4. Nice series Dao. That gosling under the wing could be contest winner somewhere if you could brighten it up a bit.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Nice shots of the sapsucker. And those gooslings! So cute! They make me feel all warm and fuzzy and, um, well... hungry.
  7. Thank you very much everyone for your appreciations.

    It's because of you that I'm now stuck with bird photography and long lenses lust :wink:. Thanks my friend.

    Your constructive comment is already put in use. Thanks a lot.

    First, I thought that those holes were manmade since they are so aligned. But upon close observation, they are of the same form as the Sapsucker beak. Nature creates wonderful things!:smile:
  8. Beautiful shots Dao. I especially love the last one, how cute is that.
