Here's a variety of stuff from the Wildlife sanctuary I frequent as much as possible-I only live about 5 minutes away, and it's a great place for the daily walk plus photo opportunities...cheers...Don

time for a snack

she's looking rather indignant here, as if I might be bothering her...or maybe telling me to get lost.

junior watching warily from afar...

Northern Flicker under beautiful gray skies...

local flora....

a small I believe Hairy Woodpecker..

really digging in...

a young Cedar Waxwing...

a Wilsons Warbler...tough shot as the light was awful..

a fat Cedar Waxwing..this guys been eating too many berries...

and a bird of a different sort...I don't know what he was looking for, but it must be important...cheers....Don

Great series Don. What lens or lenses were you using?

Thanks a200. I used the 55-300DA. A little soft, but processing can sharpen it up nicely....cheers...Don

Love the first one! All of them are very nice, but the deer pictures are my favorites.

Like the deer and really like the shot of the woodpecker in mid peck. First time I've ever seen a wild bird with its eyes closed!

I really like that first shot. You can see the joy in his/her face at getting a treat. (Or, at least it looks that way.:-))

And, the last one of the chubby Cedar Waxwing almost looks like he's telling you "who you calling fat!".

Nice, Patty

Extremely nice, it must be fun to have that place so close.

Great series. I like the fat cedar waxwing! Looks like a great place!

Love all these shots, but esp the woodpecker ones.

That lens really seems to work well. Seems to be a natural replacement for the 50-200mm and a rival to the Sigma 70-300mm.

Not sure about the plane, but at least you KNOW they are watching you......

The first one is wonderful, all the rest are all so good too.
