Okay guys, I've been looking at all these wimpy little minature birds. It's time for some man-sized working birds.

Default Hi Steven,

Nice photos. I like the blackbird image. That is indeed a rather interesting effect. Those Pelicans are always eager to please-as long as you have feeding them on your mind.

Thanks zig. I had some rather mundane looking shots of that blackbird. He kept flying around me, and then he started walking around an area with a bright white backgound. I quickly set for overexposed to see the effect and not lose detail of the bird, and just then the bird decided to stick his head in the opening. Talk about about great timing, I'd rather be lucky then good! LOL!!!!

Have to say I love the pelican pic. A different perspective captured perfectly.

Actually GW I like the shot. It's very seldom that you can get a shot of a bird looking backwards over his back!
