Just returned from Jackson Hole, Wyoming and had a fantastic time photographing the landscapes and wildlife that are there.  Here are some of my favorites from the first 2 batches that I've had a chance to process.

These were referred to as "cascades"....I call BS and say it's a waterfall.

These next few are from the Teton Raptor Center.  The first is an American Kestrel while the rest are of a 5 year old bald eagle named River.

Went over to DeSoto State Park near Fort Payne Alabama yesterday with a couple of buddies.  One of them had another friend with this view of the falls from his back porch.  He was nice enough to allow us to snap some images, showed us the property and shared the history of the area with us.  We enjoyed the rest of the evening sitting on his back porch sharing more stories and watching the sunset on the old boathouse and the falls.

I wouldn't say cheating, but I do like to create movement with the clouds or water when I can.

So how are you doing so? long exposure with a filter? or a different technique?.... Also I agree

Yup.  I have a 9 stop ND filter that's pretty dandy for slowing things down when there's plenty of light.

With the wet feathers, it's difficult to tell if she has the necklace of brown feathers.  They could be matted down from the wet feathers.  If the necklace isn't there, it'd be a male.

Didn't know that. Thanks

Thanks. I'm going to get me one right now. I've been meaning to. But I want to do it in the city so it looks like a ghost town.

A few from the Running Water Powwow over Labor Day weekend.  They always have a birds of prey show.  Last year, I nailed some shots of an Eurasian Eagle Owl, Saker Falcon, and a Black Vulture.  This year I got their Barn Owl and Red Tailed Hawk.  Still trying for the Harris Hawk!

Great Osprey photos above. I would love to photograph them,  but they are super rare over here, with only 1 or 2 mating pairs in the whole of Wales. The nearest hide to me is 2 hrs away, and they don't allow visitors to get closer than 200m from the nest to avoid disturbing the birds.

They're pretty common around here.  The 2 nests that I'm aware of 1-2 hours away but well worth it.  One of them is near a regulation dam and the nesting platform is maybe 40 feet from the shore in a very shallow end of the lake.  To the point that if we have a dry summer, you can walk across that end directly under the nest.  The other one, where the above shots were taken, is about 2-2.5 hours away but at a boat launch/ramp.  The nest is on an old pole that's 20 feet from the launch/ramp at the most.  This nest is much more acclimated to people and you can get about as close as you want to.  You could get some killer detail shots of talons, feathers, eyes, etc. with 600mm.  There were several occasions that the Osprey flew within 10 feet.  I've seen several at nearby lakes and rivers, but haven't found their nests.
