Took this shot of the Swan while I was looking for a Seal that keeps coming onto a dock. Did not find the Seal but this Swan loved its picture taken.

I shot this Bufflehead near the Swan.

This was at a resevoir I shoot near where I know there is a few Hawks. Thought it was pretty cool.

I found a new place to shoot at a forest near me. Somebody leaves bird food at a rock and there is so many different types of birds. It was great and I cannot wait to get back. I wish it was Moose and Eagles but that will have to wait til we move North. Maybe Patrick will let me tag along someday :D.

Great stuff, Chris! All wildlife is wonderful, not just the big ones. You've captured some really nice images here. What kind of woodpecker is that?

Thanks for sharing :)

Chris, you got some really nice shots, many of which would look absolutely terrific as a framed photo, and would certainly rival anything found for sale in many stores.

Thanks for posting.

Very nice photos Chris. The close-ups are amazingly clear. The Bufflehead is a really nice one. I love seeing them down here on rare occasions.

These two Cardinals were hard to capture because they never sat still long enough.
