Turaco, captive specimen. This image was probably posted some time in the past, but the bird isn't showy enough to be remembered.

"Geez a hand there pal would ya?"

A teeny tiny skink caught in a red back's web by the looks of it. Don't worry I set him free after the photoshoot

Shot with the Lensbaby Velvet 56, yes.. the same lens that is renowned for it's soft 'velvetness' glow. Make no mistake this lens is sharp stopped down (shot f8).

Canada geese are returning in quantity. This pair picked a spot with a dreadful background.

I went out this morning looking for wildlife and spotted about a score of hooded mergansers. As always, they are shy and remained on the far side of a rather big pond. The only way to get really good images is to set up a blind. Both of the images below are lens-stretching crops.

I don't think this squirrel really needs the seeds set out for birds.

Robin, they are just about everywhere that there's some open field or well-mowed grass.
