    Val123, perfect timing and capture. It looks like it can use some contrast though or is it just me.

    Turkey Vulture:
    It was quite interesting trying to photograph this guy. I was out shooting other things and saw him perched up on the post. I was about 150 feet away and I knew I had to get closer(my 8x camera doesn't zoom very far). As I was creeping along straight at him I took a couple shots just so I can have something. I eventually got about 30-40 feet away. This is fully zoomed in with my 8x. That's 8.9 - 71.2 mm, which is equivalent to 35 - 280 mm. Long story short, it was very intense trying to photograph and I want more.

    Nice one, Mumbles. I'd never known they were common in Northern California. I took these in Pacifica, where I work, this past spring:

    Nothing special. I went to the park to take photos of something else and decided to try a catch some water being flipped around by this creature....

    I believe this is an African Spotted Eagle Owl, but I wasn't paying particularly close attention when the handler said what he is.

    Thanks. I guess they are though. They fly around here all the time. Thos are great shots. The third one is my favorite. It looks like he's banking a turn or something. I can never seen to get them in the air. Point & shoots aren't the best for quick focusing.

    And thank you, too. I was in the parking lot of my school after lunch. Some were over the hill that borders the lot, but the rest were almost staight up. It was flying--and yeah, banking--right over my head, only about 40 feet up. I thought it was a hawk at first, but then I saw that ugly red head!

    Guess which bird i see every day from my window. It used to be rare to see this bird but now they are more common because of the softer winters in Holland:

    Excellent job. You have really brought out the color of the bird nicely.
