    Nice water fowl Arnt. I haven't seen the birds in the 2nd or 3rd shots before.

    A couple from yesterday afternoon, it's been raining almost steadily for a few days now....not much chance for getting images. I had to use ISO 2000 as well as some fill flash on these.

    I went out and got some bad shots of cool birds but a couple of cool shots of not so exciting birds.

    Joel, it almost looks like a painting. I like it!

    Nick, Joel, Great work. Joel, That texture is very "painterly" like---I really like the effect. And Nick That first one of the gull skimming the water is killer---again, nice work to you both. Sorry for the late reply but I have been out of the loop this weekend (had to do a computer rebuild-- but all is running good now) anyway, I thought that any serious bird photographer would appreciate this video http://youtu.be/OcCP4_R8QBw what was most impressive was this:

    8 Years
    18 expeditions
    544 days
    51 field sites
    39 species
    39,568 photos

    I guess I shouldn't complain if I have a bad day at the Bosque Del Apache. Seriously this just goes to show what the folks at National Geographic and elsewhere have to go thorugh to get those incredible shots.

    Enjoy.

    It's winter time, so I'm back to trying to shoot birds.

    Male Cardinal (Canon 40D, 300mm f4L IS, @ f4.5, 1/400s, ISO 320, dlash to the upper left at max power bounced off a large flash bender):


    Female Cardinal (same settings, but @4 and ISO 200):

    Thanks Joel. Seems like all I'm getting is Cardinals today, so I've been playing a lot.
