  1. Great series of images Chris. Following your blog, I know that many of those are very memorable moments. All the best to you in 2013!

  2. Fantastic images, Chris! I'm especially fond of the Solitary Sandpiper, Chestnut-sided Warbler and Red-tailed Hawk photographs but they all are wonderful.
