DP Photo Challenge: Close-Up

Here is a close up shot of a hawk enjoying the last bits of its lunch.

If you click to enlarge the picture, you can see its tongue (which I didn’t know hawks have).  The definition of the feathers is interesting as well.  I enlarged the head portion to highlight.  If that doesn’t creep you out, you have a stronger constitution than I do.  ; )

Photo 101: Edge & Alignment

It was a cloudy and overcast day.  A large blue heron was perched on the “edge” of the roof line.  I was two stories below, so he or she showed no fear, and I was able to take all the pictures that I wanted while he preened.  Here are two  that I believe demonstrate today’s theme. “edge”.
