1

Big and majestic.





2

Big, majestic and with a license to kill.



3

Even the guy who is big, majestic and has a license to kill has to remember he has a family to feed…



4

… so he shouldn't be distracted by anything.

And especially not by this lovely evening dancer.



5

Otherwise even the license to kill doesn't help him to avoid his wife’s question: “Where were you so late last night?”



6

Let's move to more a peaceful picture of a black swan family.



7

Don't worry, the mom of this cute cygnet is fine.

She is just sunbathing in the morning sun while the water is evaporating from her leg.



8

The sunbathing is over and it is time for a healthy breakfast.



9

Here is another big guy who enjoys of his morning bath.



10

The beaches on Florida are great, but if you are a fly you should be really careful.

Let's hope that none of the flies in this photograph is the missing pricess from the previous post.

Catherine Hall About us and Google+

Google+ has flourished into a bustling online community for photographers – and one reason is the exceptional contribution of early adopters such as +Jarek Klimek, Editor of PhotoExtract magazine.

Jarek had the foresight to research the new social network and created an authoritative list of photographers to follow on Google+.

His viral list has not only become one of the top referring resources of photography trailblazers, it is also shared and watched by leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble and Darren Rowse.

Jarek has helped introduce the work of great photographers to Google+ photography enthusiasts and I was very excited to share his insights with viewers on TWiT Photo.

I couldn't choose between 1, 7 & 9. They all offered views that I've never experienced personally- there is detail that only the photographer on the spot could capture. The eagle staring straight at you- that must be such a rare event to capture; the swan caught mid-flap with the sun shining through its foot-webbing and the pelican caught on the edge of the water surface really amazed me. Congrats to the photographers!

Al mirarlas individualmente, descubro en cada una de ellas, detalles que solo un buen ojo y una excelente cámara pueden lograr. La primera, muestra con crudeza y audacia, un ave de rapiña, que va en busca de su alimento. Hay imágenes increíbles de una inmensa ternura y considero que de lo mucho que he visto en mi vida, estas fotos inolvidables tienen tanta poesía como magestuosidad. Me tomé el atrevimiento de incluir una en uno de mis blogs, mencionando el sitio y el autor, ya que quienes me siguen son grupos literarios. Si no están de acuerdo, la reemplazo. Soy periodissta y escritora. Vivo en San Luis ARGENTINA. Mi correo es de otro blog <agendafederal­prensa(arrobba)gma­il.com EL BLOG: http://www.abaloriospoeticos.blogspot.com

Look at them individually, I find in each one of them, details that only a keen eye and an excellent camera can achieve. First, sample with harshness and boldness, a bird of prey, that goes in search of their food.There are incredible images of an immense tenderness and I think of how much I've seen in my life, these unforgettable photos have so much poetry as some. I took the audacity to include one in one of my blogs mentioning the site and the author, and that those who follow me are literary groups. If they are not agree, the replacement. I am periodissta and writer. I live in San Luis. My email is another blog < agendafederalprensa (arrobba) gmail.com the BLOG: http://www.abaloriospoeticos.blogspot.com

Number 4 is my favorite in this group, I love the colors, the clarity of the bird and the macro… it's a stunning shot with perfect focal points!

2012-07-25 04:28:52+0200

I love the image numbered 9. Though it is a common subject, the execution is awesome. The display, angle and the background and of course the exposure all made it an incredible shot.
