You are apparently a wildlife junkie, like me. Your pictures are obviously from different areas of the country. Very nice pics. I live in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan. Do you feed the birds and squirrels? On occasion I have Pileated woodpeckers eat the suet on my feeder rail on my deck rail. Did you know that Woody Woodpecker is a Pileated? They are awsome. While I am stuck in Florida I have two ten foot five inch pvc pipes filled with 70 pounds of a mix of safflower and peanut splts and twelve suet cakes secured to my feeder rail so the big birds cannot carry them away. Can't stop feeding them in the middle of winter.

fish~those are great! You live in a beautiful part of the country:)

You are motivating me to upgrade my camera so I can get shots of my local Bald Eagles...I find myself floating around in my kayak, looking up at them, instead of paddling!

I do live in Texas and we have quite a population of birds here in the winter. Yes I do keep the feeders going because I enjoy the activity of literally hundreds of birds. Most all these bird shots were taken around my house. I do travel some for work and always try to find a state park or other wilderness area to visit. The ram, mule deer, and Garden of the Gods pictures were taken in Colorado where I was visiting last Christmas. The pileated woodpecker was right off my driveway! I was excited to catch a pair there.  Ohio I am also a kayak nut...that is what kept me going through some tough days. We are close enough to the coast that I can be there in a couple hours too.  There is just something about catching that one shot....I hope that readers will remember that we should ALL not focus on what we can not do but get up, get out and do ...something...I always tell people I did not want my cancer and now illeo to define me. It was just something I had to get through to get back to being me!

esoR, Flickr is a free site through Yahoo. You can just go to flickr.com and set up your account. Posting pictures is easy and fast, that is one reason I like it so much. You can also set the level of access for certian people. So you can post family pictures that can only be viewed by family....not the whole world! You can select and post multiple pictures at one time. I usually set up a folder on my computer of pictures I want to upload and do them all at once. I think at one time on this forum someone set up an account so everyone who wanted to could post a picture of them selves...anyone know if that is still active?

Fantastic photos! Thanks for sharing them (and your upbeat attitude) with us! I live on the Gulf coast of Florida and also have a bird feeder in my yard. We have a lot of the same birds that you do in Texas, some fly south for winter, and others are year-round residents, like pelicans, herons, and egrets. I went to college in Denver and spent a lot of time in Colorado Springs. Gorgeous area, love the Rockies!

Yes, we have a photobucket.com account. The username is crohnsdisease and the password is 6mp3asa. Please, everyone, post your photos on there, so we can put faces to names!
