Default Winning photos

I'm rather chuffed because I won Best of the Month in one of my Flickr Challenge groups twice in a row.

In March with Groundhog:


And in April with Bald Eagle:


The first picture was made with my new 100-400 mm Canon IS USM lens.

Those are both wonderful! However, having battled with groundhogs in our vegetable gardens most of my life, I can say that your little furry creature may "look" cute but he's probably a terror on the garden produce!

I did not know you had bald eagles over there. That is one steely eye and very sharp beak!

The photo of the eagle was shot in Germany, Cilla.
There are pockets in Europe where they live, vultures too.

The groundhog was shot (figuratively) in Rotterdam zoo. There they Re contained in a specified area and thus not a pest like they so often are in the real world. Pest or not, he's too cute

Kibby took a pic of a ground hog & baby ground hog the other day, I'll have to see if I can find and post it.

She also got a good pic. of two crude oil train cars in the James River. There were three, when we took the pics they had managed to get one out. That was three or four days ago. Two are still in the river. They showed pics of the river on fire, from the oil spill. At one point the river was boiling. I wish we could have gotten pic of that.

@Hans - Wow. That eagle photo is amazing.

So is the groundhog (I love his little paws) but the eagle...wow!

Very nice job!

Very cool, Hans.

My parents got that same lens within the past year. They post a lot of their stuff here: https://www.facebook.com/WhittlingFogPhotography. Not that I could tell you off the top of my head which sets of photos they were using it in.
