This was shot from the driver's seat, using a monopod. I put the leg on the windowsill on the passenger's side to keep the camera stable. Where I work, there are a lot of farm and grove roads with no traffic, so I can just stop and shoot right from my truck while on the way to and from jobs.

I was going to post some moose too, but then I found bear images.
I am only posting shots from this last year for the first week, then I will start to show shots from this month I hope.
I got a couple comments on my polar bear shot about being close, I just want to be clear, that I was in a large, safe vehicle when I shot the PB's.
I always chose the animals safety and well being over my getting a shot. If I am distressing an animal I will usually leave.

I was also in my car when I took these. I took them in the same spot, maybe an hour a part, first the sow, then the male showed up, I decided they were likely a pair since they always travel together... so I merged them in the image, something I rarely do to wildlife images.

At the park near my house. Went out to get pictures for a different challenge, but these humming birds were putting on a show I couldn't pass up.

I shot this egret in full light but stopped down 1 stop .... 4.0 - 1/3200 and ISO 100 - I am posting a small shot of the original just out of the camera to show how much I cropped it ...

These were shot with the 20D and I believe the 70 to 300 lens (could be forgetting and used the 70 to 200) .. a cheap lens but had some sweet spots - too bad I dropped it. As far as editing, I just sharpened it some, used silver efex, dodged and burned around the eyes and dodged a bit under the dark wing to make it pop. Sorry for posting these older shots - I will try to get out this week and find some new material. ONe good thing is that I am going through old files and finding photos I had forgotten.

Chad, I don't know where to leave comments on your hummers unless I just post them here... Love the colors of the flowers, the catch light in the hummers eye and the b/g sets it all of very nicely. I wonder what it would look like if you cropped it a little tighter ..the flowers flow out into a white patch that distracts from the bird ...

This is a shot of another neighbor, one of the barred owls that frequent my yard. This fellow decided to hang out in my backyard and let me photograph him for a stretch of 15-20 minutes. At first i thought he was injured, sitting on a branch, but he was fine and flew off without issue. We hear him more than see him these days, especially at 2-3 in the AM.

I shot this snowy egret last month during a photo walk with a few other local photographers. I loved so much about the shot but it really lacked detail in his feathers. I ran Topaz Adjust on it with the hopes of getting more detail, and I ended up liking the one with less detail more.

I also cropped the reflection out to make this work as a desktop background, and I it's now one of my favorites (with a black background behind it).

A female coyote we saw in the forest just outside of Grand Canyon, AZ. She spent quite a long time watching us watching her (from inside of the truck).

A bit earlier in the summer I travelled to a symposium on the Greek island of Aegina (I know - what a chore!). We took a ferry from Athens to the island and a number of gulls flew along side us on our journey. This meant that they were virtually stationary relative to us, allowing for some really crisp details to be captured.
