Some nice shots there, the peregrine with lunch is terrific. I also really liked your shadow picture they have a paniterly feel to them.
Thanks. I like the shadow pictures myself. They remind me of neolithic cave paintings. I will make a post of a set of them some day. Probably mostly gull shadows unless I find another bird that lends itself to the medium. I tested sparrows on snow and it was a total wash out. Either they are too small or too fast, but they looked like shapeless blobs. I wonder about pigeons on sand, but they are not by the beach now, and when it is warm the park police frown on feeding birds by the lake.

Thanks for looking and commenting rhermans and suze.

Do they have these birds in your areas? They did not used to be here but have been introduced over the last 20 years. The link below is to a page a couple of years old and is from a neighborhood about four miles south of us.
