Thank You, Ruth.
Nice detail in the beetle, Percy.
Beautiful Shot. I've been up in that area in October on the jeep trails, and this shot brings back memories of that. Thanks for posting it.
Nice capture with the wood chips flying all around. I've seen a pileated tear up a tree really fast.
I really like the colors in this shot.
Congratulations, It made me smile. It looks like the bird is directing the warthog.
Thank You, Ed.
There are some great shots in the challenge, but this was my favorite. The light and colors are fantastic!
Nice look with the icy gray's contrasting with the morning light in the background.
Congratulations beautiful colors and light. Nice composition.
Nice capture and very creative.
Great capture I love the angle and clarity of it.
Great shot you captured a graceful flight. I hope it brings appreciation of a very graceful and important bird. They do kind of smell, but I overlook that because they help to keep down disease.
I'm always amazed to see a dragonfly-in-flight shot. Especially one straight-on and this detailed.
Beautiful capture, the fish is icing on the cake.
Lovely, back lite shot.
The gorget on this one is really amazing. Nice capture.
cjf2: Thanks. You're from Texas and I dare say you may not used to how bad the light can be in Northern England! A bit of flash made a heck of a difference. If you look at my picture of the much paler Sandwich Tern in the wings challenge that finished the same day you can see similar light without flash. Congrats on your win.
Your right I'm lucky to be in a place that has so many days of sunlight. However, I can't stay long in my hide when it's 90 to 100 degrees F as it is now. October to April is the best, Sunny and mild weather usually.
Congratulations, Percy. Looks like that might be an X rating. :)
The Mick: This is one gorgeous photo, Carmen! Very well done! Congratulations on the win.Cheers,Mick
Thank You Mick, I appreciate the kind words.
