I acknowledge we are possibly getting too many sub-topics but I really like the photos that have something of interest as well as the bird.
I'd like to see just a few before the thread dies. I know we have great photographers here, not just birders.
I'll post a couple of recent ones as examples, not the best but give an idea of what I am thinking of.
This one is an immature Bonaparte's Gull landing in the early morning mist yesterday morning.
