I had some left overs from my trip to the bird festival a while back and I took two of the Falcon sitting on the handler's gloved hand and tried my luck at removing the glove. Here they are so what do you think.............

Also I wanted to show you my Wren sitting on her five eggs in her nest in a wreath on my front door. We hardly ever use the front door as we go in and out from the kitchen to the garage. A few times, by mistake and forgetting, we've opened the door and she flies into the house. It's not easy getting her back outside to her eggs. :lol:

Taken with DRebel and 100-400L

The first shot is awesome. May I ask if you shoot in RAW or Jpeg? I tried the other day to download some photos I shot in RAW but my computer just cant handle it. Is there a huge difference do you think.?

bmullen - Thanks for looking in and for the kind words.

alady - Thanks to you also for looking in alady. But I'm sorry but I can't help you with your question about RAW as I have never shot one in raw yet. I will try that one of these days though.

Norm - And thanks to you tooNorm and I'm sure glad you liked them. If I can catch the wren off the nest I'm gonna try to get a pic of the eggs. Then when the little ones pop out maybe I'll get some of them also. I hope I don't get the whole family in the house. :G

Wow, amazing! Really nice pictures. Don't know about cloning but it looks like in the second picture you have chopped falcon's nalis on the left foot. But probably this was tough one and I wouldn't done even as close as you did.

Cheers!
