Amazing capture Cary, he is so beautiful. Awsome color's and detail #4557826

Cary Rogers 7/25/2007 8:19:49 PM

Thank you Peaches. I had to keep my aperture somewhat open--to try and stop any action blur--but the narrower DOF worked pretty well with the BG colors. Thanks again! #4559265

Wendy Stevenson 7/27/2007 6:17:58 AM

Fantastic avian capture! I so love the natural colour, beautiful detail and perfect dof! #4567216

Hi, Wendy...and thank you for your comment! I am usually trying to get a front on shot of these guys, because they have cool black stripes on their chests...but a profile shot shows the great orange ring around the eyes. Thanks again. :-) #4568476

CARY!! I am thrilled for you on your finalist's!! This is a beautiful capture of this Killdeer! I love their 'call'! Congratulations Cary and all the best for the next round!! #4714831

Cary Rogers 8/28/2007 10:06:06 PM

Thank you so much, Dianna! This spring I had a long dry spell without any Finalists, so it feels pretty good to have some this month. In these parts, I like hearing the killdeer's first call, because it mean Spring has officially sprung. Thanks again! #4715427

Taken in Lakewood, CO in late afternoon light. 72mm (and 1.7X TC lens), F/4.5, 1/400 sec, ISO-64, CWA, AP. I had to do some walking-and-stalking to get close enough to get a clear shot of this hyper little guy.
