Wet and Dry

This shot reminded of the Caped Crusader!

DOL-A-7068
Black Vulture

DOL-A-9722
Female Hairy Woodpecker

We've finally received some much needed rain.  From what I can tell, this beauty doesn't mind being wet at all.

Two fabulous images! Look at that vulture wingspan ... very cool! So glad to hear you received some much needed rain.

Both are great images but I must say that black vulture does indeed remind one of the caped crusader.

Two beautiful captures Daniel! I really like the pose of the vulture, nicely done! The Hairy photo is stunning; these are such cool little woodpeckers!

Beth said...

Both shots are a work of art. Great job!

Beautiful shots! I love that first one - so majestic!

Michelle said...

I love the way vultures and buzzards spread their wings and "sun" themselves. So striking!

Betsy Brock said...

Wow...what wings!!

Glad you're getting some much needed rain! We are, too, and it's helped a lot!

An awesome shot of the winged crusader as well as the woodpecker! Enjoyed your platinum, blonde, red photos! They were so kind to pose for you!

Love the black vulture. Without the personality of the head, you really focus on the magnificent design of flight.

Neat vulture picture! I like the wings, especially the contrast between black and white. I also like the background contrast with the vulture.

Kerri said...

Oh my .... these are super! Those wings in that first shot just take my breath away!

The top shot is truly exceptional and I know when it rains here the birds love it as it brings out all the bugs and worms... a feast for them!

Very nice vulture. At first I missed having its head but then the image grew on me. It is definitely a powerful shape.

I like the woodpecker - I think I would have taken a while to name the first species!
