    I looked at your "Flickr" stream. You are a good fly tier and your strongest work is your architectural work. Nicely done.

    The real estate photography was my first shoot just to try it out with the equipment I have. Most people don't like it because I shot it all in HDR and there is a lot of lens correction issues with color fringing. I enjoy the wildlife and landscape shooting much more...

    I love the woodpecker. Very nice. I have some near me, but I just can't seem to time it right to get the image quality you did. Im jealous and inspired to try harder now. :)

    Capybara's are vicious and should not be let alone with small children. In-laws are another matter.............

    but that's just me...

    nice job at tying flies...
    I learned to tie from members of our fly fishing club but never bothered to get good at it...
    too many of my friends tie really nice flies in bunches and give their overstock...
    yes...I'm lazy...

    I got into tying flies about 15 years ago and before I was married fly fishing and tying consumed me. I taught myself from videos, books, etc...

    I'll have to try and take some macros shots of my size #24 midge dry flies...I am thankful for good eyesight ��

    Nice shot of the woodpecker. Not an easy bird to get close too either.

    Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked. --- Lord Chesterfield

    You are right that they usually don't let you getti close or sit still for long. This one however most have enjoyed the bugs in the tree because I took about 30 or so photos of him. I have a couple where his tongue was coming out in mid motion. I need to clean those up and post them.
