        Master of his own destiny and blessed with the enviable gift of flight – AMERICAN KESTREL (male)
        It was a fine afternoon when I saw this Kestrel from a distance perched on an unusually small tree probably in search of potential meadow voles for his meal. Usually as everyone knows that these little raptors are by far the hardest raptor in flight and bursts away in the most unpredictable flight pattern giving no hint of their take off if they see one approaching in their direction. Fortunately, I was at the right time near him while he was perched so that I could compose myself and take a portrait of him while he swayed on this slender branch.
        Location : Cherry Creek State Park , Colorado DOP – 02/11/18
        Hand held and cropped, take in Manual Mode with Canon 80D with Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L lens.

          “Dont Touch my Salmon” Black Bear catching Pink Salmon in the Qinsam River every fall the bears come to the Local rivers to hunt for Wild Salmon. I had 30 seconds to get this image i was hoping to get this image before he ate the Pink Salmon it worked out ok and the Bear ran off to eat his Wild Pink Salmon. Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia.


          Great Horn Owl and Owlets
          Cape Coral, Florida
          It was getting late and the light was failing. Both owlets were on the branch waiting for dinner. I kicked up the ISO on my camera and hoped for the best. Mom arrived with a rat a few moments later and the look of anticipation on both owlets faces was priceless!!! So worth the wait for me – and especially for the owlets!

            Cormorant…he was trying to steal our fish as we reeled them in! Naples, Florida.



              On my way from Glencoe to Loch Etive I spotted a lot of Red Deer around the roads I never thought I am going to photograph them as I don’t have proper zoom lens in my bag.
              Well, it wasn’t necessary to have it. When we stopped the van I slowely opened the door and started moving closer to it. I had only 16-35 F4 lens mounted but I was able to approach dear within 3 meters. Everything looked perfect, as he was just seating there lazy and calm with beautiful scenery in the background. It was like he ruled this place and wasn’t affraid of anybody and anything. I bowed then in front of him to pay him respect and took this photo. :)
