This would look cool framed. The highlights on your thumb and the little guy could possibly be toned down slightly, as well as getting rid of some of the background noise. Great shot!
Was this in the wild? If it was, how did you get so close to use only a 100mm lens? Great shot either way.
ugly birds, but great shot!
These things can get loud! I was outside tonight trying to read, and there were a bunch of them in the trees doing their thing. Let just say I couldnt concentrate very well. Anyways, good detail in your shot.
I love this shot...sharing in nature. It would have been cool to have all of the flower petal intact though. O well great eye either way.
Wow! Thanks for sharing. The clarity and detail are amazing.
This is a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias).
From past experience these birds can be frightened easily which can make it difficult to get a good shot. Good work!
