Oh my gosh, Mark! The first one is beautiful. The bokeh and the colors are so eye catching. But the second one... looks like he/she is going to come after you. Perfect.
I have to agree with Mary on the first image. Everything is just spot on with that, Mark. Well done!
Thanks Mary. The second guy was a real poser. I caught him when he was busy grooming himself for the day ahead. I'm busy getting the hang of a new lens. Unfortunately its winter here now and the weather has been pretty lousy. Can't wait for summer when all the migratory birds get back from your side of the world.
The second guy is so fluffy and funny - and he gave you that look, oh, no picture please when I'm grooming myselfThe second guy was a real poser
Great shots !
