So many great photos in this thread, thanks for posting!

Can't identify the best picture I ever took but here are a few recent favorites:

Bored yet?

I saw this Northern Pygmy-Owl kill a Harris' Sparrow. The sparrow is larger than the 5.5 inch owl. Note the spot of blood on the owl's breast.

The Okie Corral


Another small owl, a bit larger than the Pygmy is this Northern Saw-whet Owl which measures ~7 inches tall. This male found a mate and nested in my orchard, the first nest record of the species in the Grand Valley.

Banding a nestling Saw-whet....

Sleepy time. Juvenile Saw-whets roost in the wildlife shelter belt.

Eyes Wide Open, juvie Saw-whets see all, know all.

Two owls from one, a Saw-whet Owl begins hunting at dusk.

More birds....

Grousing about, a female Dusky Grouse.

The Okie Corral


Bohemian Waxwing on miniature crabapple, Mt. Garfield in the distance. The Bohemian Waxwing is a subarctic breeder that sometimes winters as far south as Colorado.

Rufous in the sunflowers, a male Rufous Hummingbird from the Pacific Northwest stops in Colorado.

Buff-bellied Hummingbird, banding buffies in South Texas.

Salute, my flower! A male Broad-tailed Hummingbird offers a drink to a potential mate.

Small on the outside, big on the inside. An adult male Calliope Hummingbird, weighing about 2.6 grams is the smallest bird in North America, .

Thanks! But I think I'll run out of my bandwidth allotment before I run out of critter pics.

Water droplet on stainless steel. I had it printed on metallic paper and it's a "wow" piece. I would love to have it done on aluminum but I keep putting it off.

This is another one I really like. It is an old mural, painted on the side of an even older building, in Miami, AZ. It reminds me of a line from a Concrete Blonde song, "I can see a million years, a million tears behind your eyes."

Another one I love. This puppy was apparently much more disturbed by light than smell.

I have not. To date I've explored Ginnie, Peacock, Little River, Madison Blue, Jackson Blue, and Manatee. I've got several dives in most of these systems but I've dived Ginnie the most.

I tried water drops once. I found it much more difficult than I thought it would be.

Here's my best of water drops.
