Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
One of my most favorite birds. The captures are amazing. The picture in the header is outstanding.
Thanks for kind comments. Alas, in all honesty I missed an amazing opportunity with this wonderful falcon. Like most wildlife encounters it was fleeting and in my hurry, I over exposed the pictures. To get any promise of reasonable approximation to the bird given its distance away from me, necessarily they were cropped, shopped and 'magically enhanced' to the above end results. The essence of a beautiful bird, rather than the reality it could have been. I'm always learning. :)
The variety of birds and musicians is astounding. Our eyes and ears are blessed. I hope you are coping with the cold snowy weather. Keep warm. Hugs from across the country.
What a beauty Mark. They're such stunning birds. I must try drawing one one day!
