  • Replied in Thanks
    Thanks for the kind comments. I don't shoot as much as I want to so having these guys in my own yard made me grab the camera.
  • This sequence was in between the first photo and the rest  of the last post but I wanted to keep them together. Anyone who had brothers will remember this game from when they were young. Sooner or ...
  • This is the second year that the mating pair of Kestrels have nested in my palm trees. Last year I photographed them when they were fledglings just taking their first flights. I was shooting into ...
  • Thanks for the comments. Ron, all of these were taken with the Bigma.
  • Got a decent shot of a Phainopepla the other weekend on the lower salt river. I also got a few of a Phoebe. These are heavily cropped. The main reason I went there was to see some eagles. We have a ...
  • Peter, it was the Bigma. It gets detached from the camera every 20,000 photos or so.
  • Replied in Kestrel feeding
    I shot these on New Years day, finally got time to process them this week. I was about to leave for the day. The kestrel was sitting in the field on top of her prey for a long time. I figured she ...
  • Nuts, doing that 800x600 thing again. I forgot I need to get the properties by right clicking at Pbase. Another hard crop. Another head on shot Sometimes you just gotta go. He took off after that ...
  • It seems the young male Northern Harrier is sticking around the preserve. Assuming this is the same one, I first spotted him around Thanksgiving. On New Years Day I was in the right spot at the ...
  • These are the first photos I have gotten of this bird.
  • I was pretty happy with these, especially the last few in the series.
  • I haven't been shooting very much the last year or two. Good to know I can still pull it off.
  • The Osprey showed up before the Northern Harrier did. He gave me quite a few passes which was good because I am so out of practice. The keeper percentage was pretty low, especially for the first ...
  • The ponds are just beginning to get some more water in them now that less of the reclaimed water is being used for landscape irrigation. Come February there'll be more water and more of the winter ...
  • Created discussion thread The gray ghost
    These photos were taken at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert, AZ. It's primary function is as a recharge facility for reclaimed water. Instead of surrounding it with block walls and ...
  • Replied in AZ Hummingbird
    WTF? I uploaded them from my Pbase site at 1024X768 but at original size they are showing here at 800X600 pixels?
  • Replied in AZ Hummingbird
    Was at the Desert Botanical Garden last week after teaching a class. This time of year I stay afterwards and walk around. Little is blooming right now but there's always something around. This ...
  • We hibernate in the summer here. The birds are out all year but us weenies wait until the weather gets below 110 degrees to go out. The ponds are still low at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve with ...
