Booklover - that is the cutest bird picture! Love it!

Thanks for the great video Patricia! I'll have to watch it several times.

And thanks for your pigeon pictures. They are beautiful birds.

Amazing nature photography.......

The hummingbird doing rolls chasing a bug is neat!!!

This is beautiful.......be sure and watch closely, and check out the baby bat under its mama. Unreal.

If you never knew what goes on in the garden when you aren't paying attention. Watch this - some of the finest photography you will ever see.
