Homing in on a fish #2 (best largest)  Common black hawk (Buteogallus anthracinus), homes in on a fish on the Pixaim River, Pantanal, Brazil.  This hawk flew a little slower than the Black collared hawk that was lightening fast and so hard to capture.  My D810 at 1/3200 sec and 6 fps was able to keep up with this hawk and gave me some nice sequences of shots.

Saturday, December 27, 2014  "PURPLE FOUNTAIN GRASS"  “Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.” ~ Hal Borland  "Of all the ornamental grasses, of which there are many, purple fountain grass (aka Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’) is probably one of the most popular. The purple or burgundy-colored foliage and soft, fuzzy-like blooms (which are followed by purplish seedheads) make a bold statement in the garden—on their own or grouped with other plantings. Growing purple fountain grass is easy and requires little maintenance once established." ~ Reprinted text from here:  http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/purple-fountain-grass/grow-purple-fountain-grass.htm  Have a great weekend!

Sparrowhawk Out for a walk in the Danube Wetlands National Park yesterday, something caught my eye.  The large uncropped shot was with my 400mm & 1.4 converter, the inset shows the sparrowhawk sitting on a dead tree root, surveying the reeds and the pond between us.
26.12.14 - Riverland  Boxing Day was cold and grey in the UK, with a band of sleet and snow moving in from the west later in the day. We're in the east so we stayed dry until after dark, and by the time the bad weather arrived it was cold enough for it to snow. I could have posted some shots of snow falling on the garden in the dark, but this shot from the afternoon dog walk is probably a bit more interesting :)
Dec. 27.  One of the small sea turtles you can pick up at The Turtle Farm, Grand Cayman.  Their little heads are so cute and shells are just perfect.

Red-Tailed Hawk - Nisqually Wildlife Refuge
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
December 27, 2014  This is a quick shot from our first family Christmas get together with my sister and her family.  We almost always have large celebrations in Bill's workshop - so we were once again in the workshop for this Christmas party.    Two days before we had 80 people from Americase celebrating Christmas at our workshop.  It is a great venue for parties, and Bill loves it for his R&D work..    It's large enough that the kids can play, they can ride bikes inside, the adults can visit, it's heated and cooled, it has satellite TV, music and plenty of room for all kinds of fun.    In this shot, you can see my oldest Nephew Nick taking his son Cade for a ride on one of the skooters  that we keep for the kids to play on.  He was having such a good time with Dad.  The girl in pink that is flying around them and headed to the back of the workshop is Alyssa, my sister's oldest grandchild.    We had loads of fun, and today is the next family Christmas get together with Bill's children and our grandchildren.  It was impossible to get a common date for the whole family, so we broke it into two celebrations - we are blessed that we got to spend time with all the family!  Have an awesome day today my friends!  I sure am enjoying all your holiday photos.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
Friday, December 26, 2014  " 'TWAS THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS"  "There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles." ~ Unknown Author  This is one of over what looks to have been about 300 Santa Claus's from a lady's private collection that were displayed in a large room as well as throughout the library/museum. The themes ranged from "Sports Santas to Cooking Santas."  And the story goes like this...........  'Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, Not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. Santa is relaxing in his La-Z-Boy Recliner, Glad there are no post Christmas day complainers or whiners. He is indulging in William Curley's scrumptiously delicious,  Mouthwatering, yummylicious   "House Milk Chocolate Truffles" (my favorite) In hopes that Mrs. Claus is in the kitchen fixing supper! ~ by God's Child (Me)  To order, William Curley's official website is here:   http://williamcurley.co.uk/index.html  Thanks for your Christmas well-wishes yesterday; I hope everyone had a blessed day with family and friends!  ***#20 photo of the day***  (photo taken 12/23/2014)  My Homepage: www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Hyacinth macaw at sunrise (best larger)    The hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) is the largest of the macaws and is an endangered species.  A family of wild birds lived a short walk from my hotel in the Pantanal, but they wouldn't tolerate a close approach and flew off screeching alarm calls everytime we came within photo distance of the tree.  Early yesterday morning before sunrise I very carefully and very slowly snuck up to the tree where they were nesting and managed to get a few shots, including of this juvenile, as the sun first hit the tree.  They flew off as they usually do to feed after sunrise with no alarm calls, so I didn't disturb their natural behaviour.    18/11/14 www.allenfotowild.com
May 16, 2014  "I love to dance and perform the Argentine tango - it breathes love!" ~ Gilles Marini  Here's another shot from the tango exhibition in Argentina.  The dance is so fun to watch, and the costumes are just awesome.  No one does it better (IMHO) than the Argentinians.  Enjoy!  TGIF My friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

Homing in on a fish #2 (best largest)

Common black hawk (Buteogallus anthracinus), homes in on a fish on the Pixaim River, Pantanal, Brazil. This hawk flew a little slower than the Black collared hawk that was lightening fast and so hard to capture. My D810 at 1/3200 sec and 6 fps was able to keep up with this hawk and gave me some nice sequences of shots.
