    A real moon! Not shopped in! ;) Nice work!
  • David de Groot said:
    I went up there, sat around for quite some time, but it looks like the lightning isn't appearing until the wee hours of the morning, so I bailed.
    Thanks :)
    Yep, real moon, real bird, real out-of-focus tree, and all taken with one frame :)

    Hey this was taken in my neck of the woods :)
    Great timing, you got everything where it should be.

    UNREAL timing.
    Definitely in the right place at the right time!
    You mentioned something about birding being addictive...I think I'll have to agree with you on this one.
    Top shot mate :)

    And if I'd just had a searchlight I could have stopped down enough to sharpen that moon up a bit ;-)
