    Fantastic as always Ray.

    I've wanted to go to Algonquin park since I read Gordon Korman's 'I want to go Home'...back when I was in grade school.

    #5 is awesome - that's my kind of nature shot! I visited the park in the fall and it was nice... would love to see it in the snow.

    Which lens did you grab that shot with?

    ...which once more rises the question: Where have you NOT been?
    I know-I know, you say it is more places than those you have been to, but to me it seems you have been anywhere anyone else has been to, too. ;)

    Ray!
    Congrats again.

    In 4 we see a rare species of birds.
    Interesting find!!!! One for the schoolbook :greenpbl: :mrgreen:
    What a cute little thing.

    And #5 is just so very, very funny!
    That landing approach action... really cool :lol:
    Or is it the take-off sequence? :scratch:
    Anyhow, this is one to produce a big smile onto everyone's face.

    5 for me, I always like the unusual animal shots, better than posers imo.

    #5 is my best pick.

    To shoot animals and birds --- you need a lot of patience.
    To travel wide and shoot them --- you need a lot more of patience.
    To pick RARE species and shoot --- you need one hell lot of Patience.

    I admire you very much Ray:salute:.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Ravi.
