    The eye and overall body shape is perfect! I realize now my warbler is a bit longer than he should be...oops!

    Color really did make your drawing pop! I cannot believe all the leaves you drew beautifully. I barely could draw a few.

    IMG_6332 This was drawing at start of course. IMG_6333 Back to the course with the drawing at then end. Then decide to paint it... second try at painting it... IMG_6335 Wow, I learned a lot about sketching and watercolor. I have so many things to practice and have appreciated the opportunity in taking this course! Not sure I captured all I should have within the painting, but it certainly will bring positive memories. I keep talking about sketching and now I need to get at it! Thanks Liz!

    I am with you on needing to build upper body strength as my 200-500 mm lens is a challenge for me to handhold. Your osprey photo once again shows what I just read about osprey always hold their fish head first. All your photos are good!

    Wow! and I had just read that osprey turn their fish head forward to have least drag and your photo demonstrates what I read!

    That's my eventual goal..capture the bird doing something besides flying...acorn in beak, great! Nice capture!

    I have thought about practicing with birds flying into my feeder and your photo reminded me of doing that... and who knows it may have been your practice too before getting the the conservatory...nice work!

    From above the eagle, wow! That would be a great place to return to for more photos, if possible.

    Interesting when we capture an unexpected something and in this case the feather, cool!

    red tailed hawkNikon D500 with ISO 400, f/6.3, 1/2000 with 340mmospreyOsprey photo taken with Nikon D500 With ISO 400, f/11, 1/2500 with 500mm. Both photos taken on different days were with little time to set up! The hawk spent a minute flying over me and the osprey was on a post and then took off so I figured to practice while it flew away. The hawk was handheld and osprey was while using my gimbaled on tripod.
