Where did it go?? maybe in Durham with Airic and Peter.. but it sure wasn't around here. What a drag to have so many cool birds around and bad light., same as yesterday. O well.. I had some fun, even when it was spitting rain. But it is so much easier to edit good light shots.. It took me 4 hrs to finish these. Amazing how time flys !!

For those interested, I will take the extra effort, coz I am in the mood.. and post all the exif data for each shot.

1 All the exif info here in the first frame is the same in every other shot, except the time.. so I will clean most of the repeated text off, to keep things less distracting.

Wow. Just Wow. Love 'em all, as always, but especially the redwing blackbird shots. And of course the one of Daisy and Maria (who's growing like a weed).

Not where I thought I'd end up
Wow - once again an outstanding series of photographs. I wish I could get one shot of a bird as clean, crisp, and brilliant as all of yours.
Oh, and the first shot's a definite keeper... Beautiful family!

Don't we all????
I sure do!

And I so hope, hope, hope you guy will come help us maintain the "international" aspect of the DC meet-up! We can't do it all alone, just Andreas and I! We need some Canadian help. HELP! (Spread my plea to Eric and Peter and Carl ... make a pool and COME ... COME! Please! Then you can laugh about my humble equipment and attempts to take photos :lmao: )

I think the 'muted' light adds to these pictures rather than distracts. I love the colouring in all of them.

I particularly like number 3 - his/her expression and the clarity of the droplets. I also like number 14. Looks like a professional model! :mrgreen:

Those just jump out at you. Almost a 3D look to them.

Great shots just does not do them justice. Awesome!
