Gorgeous capture.



I love how the light hits the birds head.

Great shot of that wonderful bird. Colors are right on and the exposure looks really fine Tomsch. I like the crop choice too.

This one gave me plenty of time to work on exposure. I wish the light had been a bit better so you could have seen the turtle on the branch, as it is it comes across more like a rock.

Here is the left stretch, getting ready for a departure.



He even stretched his tounge

You need not thank me, the joy of sharing is my reward. When one is fortunate enough to stumble onto beauty and then lucky enough to capture and record it,Then it most certainly has to be shared. If one tries to hoard all that he sees there is nothing to be gained for anyone. What if your brain crashes and you loose it all?

This is the last shot as the next frame he is airborn. The power in those skinny legs is amazing. One deep crouch and he is launched.
