Being a dyed in the wool photography addict, I thought we needed a Wildlife Photography Thread.  Hopefully, the mods will put a sticky on this.  My public images are hosted on Flickr, then linked to WTW so we can save some space on the WTW servers.   I hope others will chip in and contribute.

 

Here's my backyard photography from today.  An adult bald eagle driving off a juvenile, and a northern harrier female hunting.

Cool shots. Looking forward to seeing what people post here. I'm not a photographer but I enjoy seeing others' efforts. Good idea for a thread.

Love it.  The harrier is a really nice capture.  He seems to be flying right towards you, which can be difficult to track focus.

 

And, I want your backyard!  :P  At least the wildlife; I did shoot a sequence of a crow doing aerial combat with a red shouldered hawk from over our orchard.  Eagles are always special to me.

With all the photographers we have here I'm surprised we don't already have one. I'm constantly in awe of the photos I see posted here. 

 

 

 

 

I don't even have a good puppy pic yet.

I too am an avid photographer and have a Fleet on order so that I can get out and do more of it.  Great idea to start this thread for pictures.   Here's one I shot a few days ago in my backyard.

Nice action shot, Park!  Your new Fleet will definitely enable you to get out there.

 

Here's a shot or two from last weekend.  

The warm January weather was good hiking to our local river where we often see hibernating clumps of ladybugs.

I make no claim to being any kind of a photographer, and my camera is a cheap point-and-click, but here's a wildlife pic.
