Wonderful shots of the birds in particular - that Bluebird shot especially is something else (though personally I think I would have cropped a little tighter to lose some of the distracting top & left hand side).

Harriet - Glad you enjoyed the ice - will be posting several more frozen photos soon... And that Mockingbird certainly was puffed up against the cold (was about 15 degrees F when I snapped him).

Ronny - We are blessed with many great little birds here in East Tennessee, but I'm usually too slow to photograph them. Glad you liked these!

TacticDesigns - Thanks so much!

Lou - Thanks for your kind words!

Kevin - Thanks for the good suggestion. Bluebird shots were already a bit cropped (taken with A*300), and I was afraid of losing detail by cropping any more...

Gw - Thanks so much!

Ned - So glad you enjoyed them!

Your bird pictures are great as usual!! You always capture the "personality" of them. I especially like the bluebirds, the mockingbird (so "cute" all puffed up!!), and the first bluejay one.

Thanks so much BlueSky!

PS - Can't believe we are both awake at the same time! (will be signing off here momentarily - have a great day!)

thanks for some more of your excellent photos
i wouldnt mind going to work and getting photos like you got
if only sunrise could be later in the day
and the bluebirds are beautiful
and ice in the streams is something we just dont ever get, so for me these are sure different
thanks for sharing

John - Thanks for your kind words - I am indeed blessed with a great place to work. If you want some later sunrises, just get in touch with Ned (Eetu) - he can find you some middle of the day sunrises!!

LOL... It is only -24 C here in Finland! Sun sets at 14.46. We are currently getting 5 hrs. and 8 mins. of actual sunlight! But come June 21, it is a different story... the sun is up quite late into the evening, and it doesn't really get "dark" at all.
