    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:

    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.

    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.

    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.
