Nasos, this was intentional, just its claws.

Heron with European Water Vole or Black Rat, I'm not sure.
Never seen this before. The rat was fighting back, but no chance.
The heron went behind the read, so I couldn't see him swallowing it.

Amazing portraits of humming birds.  Thank you for sharing, Ken!

Thanks Akira.
It's a lot easier when they are sitting.

Interesting one.  I don't think I have ever seen a leucistic crow.

Thanks for sharing.

It is interesting to me to see how birds appear in their environment. Here are the male and female Wood Ducks. Easy to see the male, not so easy to see the female. Does nature protect the female and make the male a target?

Here is a Little Grebe swimming in a small forest lake. The bird is actually in the shade, but the lake mirrors the morning sunlight shining on the surrounding trees.

Grebes are beautiful birds and you have captured this one beautifully. From the water’s early morning light to the complementary colors of the bird, you got it.
