Thought this forum might could use a thread for everyone to show some shutter talents.

Post your best photography for others to enjoy.

I'll start with these: Blood Moon - Nicaragua - Cat laughter - Surfside, Texas.

They look like they've been banded. Where do they do that?
I saw an Eagle(no pic-I was kayaking) again yesterday- still a thrill every time. Never saw them when I was a kid.

The Peregrine Falcons are almost all banded. They nest in a section of a bridge tower over the bay, when the young ones are in the nest they get banded.

Fantastic pics, great post idea. Years ago I had a falconer fellow worker and roommate who had a pair of peregrines. Noisy birds to live with, tremendous daily responsibility too, but amazing experience to go fly them against pheasants, doves, etc. Spooky to have a falcon stoop on you and fly seemingly through your hair at well over 100 mph. His female would do this to me repeatedly in the field, I think she enjoyed scaring me, was empowering to her.

The capybara is indeed quite tasty. I read that centuries ago the pope declared the capybara a fish so that it could be eaten sin-free on fridays, a much appreciated papal dispensation for south american settlers.

I am way out of my league here, I am a crappy photographer with good subjects. You guys are awesome, I have been trying to learn this for about 2 years and I just cannot get a handle on it. I have ruined some epic shots with poor choices.

Took this one back in 1988. It was the 4th of July and the fireworks show just ended and as I was packing up my gear I turned around an saw this. I thought it looked kinda Norman Rockwell ish. I took a picture of the print on my wall with my cellphone camera, so it doesn't look as good. I dont have a film scanner anymore or I would have done it that way.
