  4. Oh wow what a sky watch shot. This needs a applaud.

    Like the robin on the fence. Spreading wings on the post. One of my faf bird.

    When there is a storm it is the one bird that is not afraid. He fly's like an eagle should. Dignity. Is that not on the American coin. Bravo.

  10. Wow all your shots are fantastic. Loved the Eagle (who wouldn't) and the Robin is so perfectly posed on that fence for you. Those Shelf Clouds are amazing, I don't think I've ever seen a cloud formation like that.
