I can not believe this thread went so long without WPRESTO posting.
Hope that means you're disappointed. Been out of the house a bit and had company, but mostly I've run through my best wildlife images. In fact, the ready-to-post folder is down to the dregs. Jeepers! That means I may have to go out and actually take some pictures. What's this world coming to?
Matamata. Look closely for the nostrils - turtle equivalent of breathing through a reed to remain hidden below the surface.

I exhausted my wildlife images awhile ago. You and Noel just seem to have an endless supply. I finally got out again to take some new ones.

Noel is the one who has deep reserves of images. But if he can get out to one of the SA parks on weekend, he can bring back 1,000 images of 100 or more different species. If I go out to a park on a weekend. maybe I'll come back with some images of a grey squirrel, - - or I can take a plane to Texas and photograph Otis!
And cedar waxwings are one of my favorite birds. No flashy coloring like a Western Tanager, but somehow very sleek and handsome

Oh yes, I need to post an image, so here's another shot of that golden-collared manakin, not taken at the local park.

I hear you there. We do not exactly have exotic wildlife here in Michigan. I get excited when I get a shot of a whitetail deer.

A cardinal taken along a local lake. %100 crop on the Tamron 70-200 2.8.

This is one of our species that is not seen often (except dead ones on the road). I was fortunate enough yesterday to catch this guy feeding in the grass. along a road in a park, most of the day had been rainy and gloomy so the place was deserted. This skunk was so interested in "grazing" that I think I could have walked up to just s few feet away, but I was not willing to test that theory.

Anna's hummingbird - I recently bought the Pentax 150-450mm lens. It blows my old Sigma 150-500mm out of the water.

Went back and found some shots of of bluebirds in flight that are pretty good, maybe worth posting (already culled out and posted the best images from the set taken this day).

Common mergansers. For those outside NA, the male (background) is in breeding plumage, It later molts and looks pretty much identical to the female.

It's also familiar to residents of Asia and Europe (in the UK it's also known as Goosander).

Red faced Mousebitd, so called because of its habit of scampering around bushes and shrubs. And probably also because of its long tail
