I wish I had been a little faster on this. I normally wouldn’t post an image with this kind of soft focus, but I have never seen the underwing coverts of a northern flicker. Stunning!
Wood duck wings
Possibly an immature green-breasted mango. (But certainly correct me.) They are such shape-changers when they fly. Glorious.
For my dragonfly friend beneath-my-tree. This was shot with a Canon 5D Mlll and a 400m f4 DO. F9 1/640 and very tired arms. (Click on over to my article How to Photograph the Graceful Dragonfly for more.)
I swung my lens up just in time to catch this low-flying mallard. The sky was so blue and his feathers were so white. (click to enlarge)
I am very proud of this very early morning bald-headed eagle sequence. Extraordinary birds. (click to enlarge)
5D Mark lll Macro Monday Marvel!
Dirty talk for the photogs: this was shot at f18, 1/500, ISO 12800-no noise reduction applied in post. I’m giddy.
