  1. A couple of Hooded Mergansers making waves.
  2. I never knew that there was a site to upload pictures where random people could vote on them. Personally, I take pictures for my own enjoyment and DGAF what others think, and nor do I seek some stranger's approval. To each their own.
  3. While reading emails before work, I heard a noise and looked up to this guy pecking the lower part of my windshield and then he looked up. I was able to get a fair picture through the windshield.
  4. I think this is a Pacific Wren based on the tail, but am not positive at all.
  5. This isn't a very good picture, but I hadn't seen one of these prior to this so I went with it anyway.
  6. IMO, no it doesn't. You're only altering for brightness or maybe contrast. If you made the head redder or greened up the foliage that would be different. As a decidedly non-professional photographer, some of my pictures don't look that great out of the camera so I too adjust the lighting via Elements. Besides, it's not like you're submitting it to some contest. Keep doing what you're doing.
  7. It's been a while since I've been on here and I don't know why. This is a TriColor Heron (I'm pretty sure) and it was new to me.
  8. I've come to the conclusion that larger birds such as this Sandhill Crane, Ravens, and raptors must be important birds because they often have smaller birds "escorting" them.
  9. Kind of interesting that in most of nature, it's the males that are the more brightly colored but not with humans.
  10. I'm not positive, and I apologize for the shadiness, but I think this is a female Bullock's Oriole.
  11. Pretty overcast but I wanted to try out the new lens. I believe a Gadwall and a Song Sparrow.
  12. Can't tell by that picture how dark it was. Very nice.
  13. I wasn't aware there was a Blue Grosbeak and I really like snakes. Nice.
  14. I went to get a drink of water and saw a lot of Crossbills (I've never seen them in my yard). I couldn't go outside because they would have flown away so this is through the kitchen window.
  15. Not the best picture, but I'm a big fan of crows and this one was still long enough to get a couple of pictures.
  16. I'm not sure I've ever seen their feet. Kind of odd looking.
  17. Not the best picture but okay, I guess. He was all puffed up because it was a little chilly this morning.
  18. This was way up there but I think it's a female Red Crossbill. I haven't seen one of those previously so I'm not positive.
