Tony, that flying owl pic is gorgeous!  Steph, love the pic of the bird with the berry in his beak.  It reminds me of my Grandma's backyard when I was little.  She had a whole row of bushes with berries like that, and would always warn us that the birds could eat the berries, but they weren't for kids (whatever they were must have been not for human-comsumption!)  She loved birds and had tons of flowers, birds, a birdbath, etc. in her yard.  It was gorgeous!  Thanks for bringing that memory back to me!~ Melinda

Love the owl picture Tony - very good camo there. The bird was very hard to see. It blended in so nicely with the tree.

Wow!  That is a weird owl picture Tony!  Very cool!
