Default One day is the life of a GBH ;)

It looks like a good morning:





Kind of Misty still...





Time for a snack:






It looks like lobster is on the menu:

You should call this "The extremely "tough" life of a GBH"
Nice series of a magnificent bird

Very nice series again. It looks like he has a crayfish in his beak. I wonder how he can break it to a point he can eat it since the crayfish has a very tough shell.

Well done. A really nice series of the GBH there. I really like the pose in photo #1.

Very nice. I really like how you were able to keep all the details in #2 against that bright background, the lighting is almost otherworldy and beautiful in the first 2. #4 is actually my favorite though, the more I look at it the more I like it. It has a intriguing subject, great movement, neat bokah, interesting foreground and natural and pleasing framing. You can tell without any narration exactly what is happening and can infer what happened before the picture and what is going to happen afterwards. The ability a a photo to trigger my imagination like that is fascinating to me. Thanks for sharing it.

I don't like the background of the last two as much as I noticed this blurring phenomenom before on several images
-> IMO I think it's caused by the VR of the lens... The subject in the foreground appears to be locked on by the lens and stay still and sharp, but the background appears to be 'displaced' by the lens movement
