    Denise - Difficult shot to catch a Killdeer (smallish bird) in the air and so sharp at the eyes. Really nicely done.

    Joel - I wish I could find a Wood Duck. They are so colorful. Nicely done... as all yours are.

    Thanks guys! That's what it is a killdeer! I couldn't think of the name of it and it was driving me crazy!

    Here is another from this afternoon ...

    Not the best bird photos but just wanted to share this sequence of events ...

    Bird on left says, Whatcha got there? Can I have some?

    Bird on right squawks loudly, NO you can't have any! Bird on left says, Wow, sorry I asked man, just keep your seaweed.

    Wow, Denise, this BIF shot is not that easy to get, like the pose, sharpness and exposure, i was wondering what's the shutter speed you used. I have been thinking to use 1/8000 to shoot small birds in flight if there is sunny bright light, but always forgot to set the speed that fast lol. keep up the good work!

    Thank you! The killdeer was shot at 1/2000 and it shocked me it turned out as well as it did (all except for his right wing)!

    Nice bunch of images Denise....the Kill Deer in flight is not an easy one to get for sure.

    I have some good news...the CEO of the hospital where I work wants to decorate their new surgery building (that will be completed this fall) with 20 or so prints of my images!!!

    I guess I made my first image sales....I was very pleasantly surprised to say the least.

    Congrats Joel, Would love to see some of your chosen pics---Perhaps a section on your webpage----Also, Hospitals have deep pockets---Hope you make enough to cover the cost of that 1DIV.

    Congrats again,

    Bob
