Magellan Penguins - Patagonia
In reply to myssvictoria, Mar 29, 2013

Hello folks.  In December 2012, I had the chance to do one of the most spectacular trip of my life in Patagonia. I spent a day in Punta Tombo... the largest colony of Magellan Penguins in the world. They had their babies a few weeks before and there were approx. 1 millions birds during my visit.  Of course, I took hundreds of pictures, please forgive me if I post just a few more than 3.  I hope you enjoy.

On Golden Pond.
In reply to myssvictoria, Mar 30, 2013

Not far from where I live there is a wetlands area. One of the ponds reflects some beautiful yellows and reds from nearby steel sculptures that decorate a freeway. If you stand in the right spot and wait for a bird to glide through that area of reflection, you get some amazing results.

All these are straight out of the camera and not PP'd in any way to add, subtract or enhance the colours.

There were four in the trees but the others flew off as I was putting the camera out of the car window.  This fellow stayed and posed for me.

Bobcat, Eagle
In reply to myssvictoria, Mar 30, 2013

I'm pretty lucky to live about a mile from this small lakeside park that has a loop around protected wetlands where I usually do my daily walks. There are many year round birds seen at this park, lots of migrating birds stopping by for a rest, and the occasional Bobcat. These were taken on walks this week. All cropped. Wish the light had been better.

Resident Bald Eagle with feathered prey and Crow

Crows, Jays, Juncos, and Chickadees were making a fuss around this area of a tall Fir tree. I suspected an Owl and was surprised to see the Bobcat. It was impossible to see without glass.

Bobcat a few days later. This was taken with the G5 and 100-300. I wish I had brought the FZ200 + Nikon TC.

The light looks pretty good in all of them Vickie. You never know what you're going to find do you? Looks like you found a few good things. How did you spot the bobcat in the tree? Excellent shots.
