Great Grey Owl with a Vole.
Severe crop, he was so far away

Just a couple of folk out for a walk in conversation... again with the human terms for the seagulls natural behavior. The reflective nature of the wet sand really adds to the visual impact of the picture. Is that a fish in the one seagull's beak?

Really like the color you captured in the mallard's plumage and it's really aerodynamic form.

Like with all owls the eyes of the Great Grey are mesmerizing and there is no escape for such a creature as the vole once the eyes of the owl are zeroed in on it.

Hairy Woodpecker.

Thanks for viewing and commenting.

Another well done series of the birds in their natural habitat... full of detail, color, clarity.

Always wondered why the name hairy woodpecker and your image answered that question for me.

With only that small speck of red, I never would have guessed
Woodpecker......but then , my limited frame of reference is the Woody
Woodpecker cartoons. :-)

Thank you Jan for commenting. In the Gull pic, they are walking on
ice. It was the reflective quality of the ice that caught my
attention.
One day, I quietly stood in the same place for 2 hrs waiting for
the Owl to fly, he jumped from 1 branch to another, and that was
it.
Thanks Bruce. the Downy and Hairy WPs have the same designs on
their back and red spots on their heads. The Hairy is slightly
bigger though. My goal is to catch one flying, no pic yet I would
post.
The Mallard is fun to play with the back grounds, practicing my
selection technique on the bird.
