it is Cold, very Cold
Posted By: ToXiQ, 01-10-2010, 03:21 PM

Hello All,

It is freezing in Europe and snowing. Most birds have it diffcult and because they are hungry we can see them more close then normal. Also some birds have such pcolor patterns they trust their colors and normally we will walk or drive through because we do not see them. But now when it is white here we can see them more easaly.

1. Great White Heron portret

2. Great White Heron hunting

3. Woodcock

4. Snipe

5. Bewicks Swan

6. Waterrail

7. Bittern

Thanks for looking

mvgr Walter

All apart from #7 are just fabulous. (#7 is just a tad soft and low in contrast, but interesting bird...)
#1 is spectacular - love the high-key portrait naturally done.
Love them.

Those are great (but I won't trade weather.)

Wow and Wow. I have shot a ton of white egrets in my area but would trade any of them for that first white-on-white shot. That is worth a 24"x36" print on your wall. Thanks for posting it.
