    Flicker fun.

    Caught this flicker digging in the grass. He was kind enough to hang out for a second. I like the astute pose he gave. C&C Welcome.

    Flicker fun.

    Paul,
    That is an awesome shot! Not only the pose (which is quite the regal, "I know I'm all that" pose), but the detail of his feathers and markings with the contrast of the grass is perfect. This is the kind of shot I'd like to see in a field guide... a realistic, true to life shot. Way to go!

    I like it a lot, Paul. This is a very good shot for me. Nice shot, Man.

    Thank you Frankie and Jiro. I was surprised at how light and wispy his feathers are.

    Paul,

    Did he do this repeatedly? I think if you put those two frames together repeatedly in an animation, you could have the new hit craze on the internet and possibly the newest dance craze (coming soon to Dancing with the Stars?)!

    I'm sure there is some equally crazy music to go with the dance (and no Yakkity Sax! it needs something original).



    - Bill

    Are you kneeling for these shots? The angle of view seems very low for these shots which gives us a better profile of the bird.

    Yes John, I tried to get down to his level. I was lucky not to spook him off.

    Both shots are great. The first is outstanding in detail, composition and color. Not bad for an "old" camera.
