The star of the show! (best larger)  Proud eagle standing on a rabbit skin lure, Eagle Festival, Olgii, Mongolia  Lots of competitions around the world feature horses and riders, but almost none add an eagle and combine all three, so in many ways the eagle is the real star of the show.  I loved the profile of this eagle with its 'crown' of golden feathers standing out around its head.    Today I am featuring photos of the eagles catching the lure of rabbit skin or fox skin.  In the old days the competition featured a live rabbit or fox, but this is no longer considered acceptable by the foreigners that come to the festival.  A fast sequence of three shots of the capture that really shows a close-up of the action can be seen here: http://goo.gl/97Gzug  I didn't do a collage, since they really should be seen at the largest size.  The shots were done with a fast shutter speed and a higher aperture, so a high ISO was needed.  27/07/15 www.allenfotowild.com

July 27 2015 Happy Birthday Braden  Today is Braden's birthday so we'll be getting together with my daughters and grandkids later today.  This is a picture I took of Braden shortly after his 8th birthday.  It's my favorite picture of him that I've taken in the last year; it just captures who he is.  Thanks so much for all the nice comments on our anniversary.  We have a great time staying at the Marriott where we spent our wedding night 45 years ago.  The staff there really made us feel special.

Monday, July 27, 2015  "I WANT CANDY"   "I feel like a little kid who just walked into a candy store. I think that's something to smile about." ~ Brandon Boyd  One from the 2009 archives........  This scene was photographed with the first DSLR I ever purchased, a Nikon D60, that I ordered on 5/19/2009. I've upgraded twice since then. Notice the date imprint? Well, during those early days, I was really into having the date imprinted on my photos, until my best friend finally, convinced me otherwise. The date, by the way, has since been replaced with my watermark. The title was inspired by Aaron Carter's version, although there's an original version by The Strangegloves (whom I had never heard of) and one by Bow Wow. I favor Carter's version.  Have a "sweet" and magnificent Monday!

Great egret...  The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret or (in the Old World) great white heron, is a large, widely distributed egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. The Old World population is often referred to as the great white egret. This species is sometimes confused with the great white heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related great blue heron (A. herodias). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_egret  Bolsa Chica Wetlands Huntington Beach, CA  Thanks for your views, comments and critiques, much appreciated!

Day 207: Moth-Snowberry Clearwing - July 26.   This moth, like a Hummingbird moth is a member of the Sphinx moth family.  Like hummingbirds, these moths hover over a flower with rapidly beating wings to gather nectar from the flower.  There seems to be disagreement about whether the moths are simply variable colorings and markings of the sphinx moth or if there are actually different species within that family.  Typically, those called Hummingbird clearwings have lighter legs and more red in their bodies and the edges of the wings.  When the moths first hatch, the wings are a dark color but as they begin to fly, the scales fall off leaving a clear wing with dark borders and veins.
