Great idea for a thematic thread, Littledrawe. Great captures, too. In your last golden eagle photo, I see small animal tracks in the right background. Good for him he dove into shelter!

I can't help but be charmed by chipmunks. This little guy is a frequent visitor (tho not at this time of year). I was new to digital photography when I took these, and the focus isn't as sharp as I'd like, but I do like his expressions.

All very interesting shots. I agree with Tamia, a very good idea for a Thematic thread.



The saturation on this shot has not been altered. The colours are as shot. Just to explain the brilliant colours of the Lorikeet.

Good idea for a thread Littledraw, and nice start with the Eagles!
Tamia, great Chipmunk portraits, I can hear them chipping away!
Bruce, what a beautiful bird and great capture of it.
Rob, nice monkey shot, what breed is it?

Forgot to compensate for the snowy background on the second one when I took the shot so I tried to improve it with the in camera filters, not totally successful but I still like it.

Great shots, everyone. Bruce, I've never seen such a colorful bird.

A frequent visitor here leaves his (or her) sign on winter mornings...

Bunny Tracks




And one day when I was sitting quietly outside hoping to entice birds closer for my lens, I suddenly found myself being watched. He evaporated like a ghost after one shot.

That's about as wild as it gets around here. I'll spare you from viewing The Hound.. He can get wild at times but technically, he is not wildlife.
