    I searched and couldn't find a thread for wildlife photography so I decided to start one. The rules are simple, post one picture a day of wildlife that you've encountered.

    I'll start it off. I love to photograph bald eagles. Here's one feeding in a tree.

    Took me a while to spot it. Great photo. I love how you captured the flower with it. The lighting is really cool too.

    Ok, so this one is not "in the wild." This bald eagle was rescued after an injury, and is human dependent. That fact does not seem to be bothering him much, as he still seems to be very regal in appearance. The great thing about this shot is that the park ranger allowed me to go in the cage and take it. I was so close that this pic is shot at 18mm. It was a great experience.

    As I took this photo I watched the hair stand up on her back - made a quiet and speedy exit.

    Amazing pictures. Here's my humble entry, taken in Killarney Provincial Park on Ontario Canada on a hike up to Silver Peak.

    This was taken on a trip to the Alaska mainland. I don't have much experience with black bears, but this guy just wanted to get away. Brown bears have mostly straight claws and rarely climb.

    Some outstanding wildlife shots here. I haven't done much with a still camera lately, so I'll post a short video here. These guys are frequent visitors around my place.

    Reminds me of the "Far Side" cartoon where two bears are standing on their hind feet talking to each other. One has a white "Bullseye" on his chest.
    The other says: "Bummer of a birthmark, Hal!"

    Cool pic btw!

    A good friend of mine who is a wildlife rehabilitator here in ENC. He specializes in raptors. He let me come along on this release of a healed up Bald Eagle.
