    I’ve always found photographing small birds mid-flight is almost impossible. A remarkable achievement, and beautiful to boot.

    Great stuff, thanks!

    Bird photos are generally of the colorful tropical sort, or charismatic hunting birds. Ricks pix are of scruffy neighborhood birds doing their generally-unnoticed thing.

    Very dynamic shots. It actually kinda changes my perspective on birds and I can almost see the dinosaur in them.

    This is one of my favs, looks so majestic:

    Beautiful and engaging shots. It’s also nice to see a celebration of the more common birds (or as snooty bird-watchers dismiss them as ‘junk birds’).

    Watching sparrows often contains more comedy than most half hour sitcoms.
