Charlie,

Beautiful subject and composition. Amazing details. Incredible pictures. They make me want to touch the fly (even though it is very nasty).

Have you used 3D stacking program here?

Thank you! :-) Ken, you might be right. I'm not sure. I'm not a bird expert at all :-) But perhaps the bird majestic posture is confusing. Here is a couple of other shots of the same bird: http://www.pirx.com/gallery/albums/utah_animals/raven2_small.jpg http://www.pirx.com/gallery/albums/utah_animal...

Antelope Canyon, Page, AZ

I just returned from a trip to southern Utah and northern Arizona. I visited many beautiful places on my way, but this one was truly magical, even though lighting was not very good (it was a cloudy day.) http://www.pirx.com/gallery/albums/antelope/ante23.jpg http://www.pirx.com/gallery/albums/antelo...

Portrait of a raven

I'm not sure if this picture qualifies as a close-up, but I shot it with a macro lens!

They superficially look like worms. There is a little "door" (operculum) at the end of the tube. The snail releases ba...

Remarkable pictures! Very "Charlie-esque" feel! Excellent details and very pleasant color tones, as usual. :-)

I can see you have got the 1.67x eyepiece, at last! Can you photograph the entire field of view now?
