Amazing photo, Sharon, just amazing. In fact, all of your photos strike me that way, so full of life, wonder, love, and enjoyment.

Beautiful!! The bird looks so free and graceful.

Thank you :)

FC, YES!! The light is what I love about this one. There is nothing like the quality of the light this time of year, between 4 and 5pm. I love it.

Just stunning! I have just spent the morning folding paper birds for an origami workshop, so it's very nice to see a virtual version of the real thing.

Sharon, this is one of those pictures that make me say "wow"!

I knew that Debbie was your sister and I started thinking maybe Erin and Alan were connected but I had no idea they were related to you. I'll have to mention that next week. I think Salty and Willard are brothers also.

Lovely shot. The angle of the bird makes the photo perfect.

What is amazing in this photo (for me) is the shaft of light on the bottom of the left wing. Awesome. http://easynowoldchap.blogspot.com/
