Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

Osprey had just taken off from the water.  Light overcast reflecting white from the smooth river surface below eliminated most shadows (for a what I think is a cool ghostly effect.)

As I have said before... Come to KS! It's better than you might think!

The Army allowed me two months in AZ in '82 and six in OK in '87.  I wasn't a birder at those times and regret the missed opportunities. 

But I learned as a military brat and various National Guard trips, almost everywhere has something of interest!

Pileated Woodpecker.  My back yard, Brunswick County, southeastern NC.  22 May 24

My best shots ever of PIWOs.  At one time I had FIVE within less than 100 yards, flying, calling, popping in and out of a nest hole.  I think the pair below were the nest hole occupants.

... and today, another chase and long observation time. Another real tough one (for me at least) ... Magnolia Warbler. Had to fudge with Photoshop a bit to get the yellow to show up better.

I was born at Ft Sill and my grandparents lived not far from there and it was at their house I saw a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher when I was a kid. It was fascinating.
