Very cool shot!What friggen moron gave this a half star vote?!
Excellent image of an amazing bird!Can't believe two morons voted half star on this.
Very cool shot! Unreal this got 3 half star votes from obvious idiots.These challenge vote results are unfortunately getting more pathetic every day.
Got any more of that apple left?
I just heard something. Did mom and dad just get home? Did we remember to clean up that plant we knocked over?
Oh great, here comes George. Now we are going ot have to hear all about his trip to the beach, again.
This branch ain't big enough for the both of us. You gotta leave.
idanbh88: Great Capture! yours and the eagle as well!
Thanks much, I appreciate you looking and commenting!
The Mick: I knew this one would do well. Nice shot Phil!Congratulations and thanks for sharing.Have a Happy New Year.Mick
Thanks a million Mick! As always I truly appreciate your interest and your very kind words.Enjoy your New Year!Phil
pwmoree: Great shot, I wonder who dared to gove you the halve star rating.He or she was maybe drunk or judged with thick fingers :-)). Congrats.
Thanks for the kind comments. Ha, I saw the half star vote. I have said before I would love to see the gallery of some of these people voting half stars. They must be amazing photographers. But they never will have to back it up will they? Oh well, really glad you liked this shot.
Vandal Savage01: how did you get that shot.
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like this photo.I have to admit though I'm fairly discouraged by some of the challenge results. I don't believe the voters factor in degree of difficulty when voting.A pelican just sititng there gets 3rd place?!A flower gets 5th! A flower?!?And a sunset wins. I guess people's eye tends to gravitate toward pretty pictures and don't think of much else.
Anyway for a few more photos of this sequence and many other wildlife photos feel free to check out my blog which is updated daily.
The Mick: Another nice capture, Phil! You must have some cool stories to tell. ;o) Nature is so amazing... and being that close to it, for what I assume are hours on end, must really be rewarding when you get shots like you do.Thanks for sharing!Mick
Thanks for the kind comments, I appreciate it.If you are interested in more of my bird and alligator photos feel free to check out my photo blog at http://phillanoue.com it is updated daily. CheersPhil
Heals and legs are great. (too bad you cut off the other foot) but sadly, the cigarette immediately kills the appeal of this woman in my view.
This is pretty darn cool!
