Always love your wonderful, sunny, shadow shots, Diane!! They almost make up for the fact that we haven't had sun in days!! Have a great weekend!

Spectacular shadows! The cactus, the palm, the bush; all great!

Ralph said...

These are al wonderful desert shadows! The bird on top has a shadow that looks like a natural marking on this avian. The cactus and palm leave expansive shadows on the desert floor. The quail stands proud, as does his shadow. Nice captures, all!

I seldom find my shadow inside the forest.

Eerie???

Magpie said...

These are wonderful...I have a shadow shot in mind that I've tried several times to take. Haven't gotten one that quite conveys the feeling I want yet. You've inspired me to keep trying. :)

Hey Harriet said...

Wow! You sure found some fab shadows while out and about! I love the two bird ones best of all. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Adore this collection of shadows, but especially love that little housefinch and the burst of shadow on its feathers from a weed!

That house finch is so cute! I had to make him larger. I see TJ is wearing his turkey bib - hope he enjoyed his first Thanksgiving.

All are wonderful, but the palm tree and the bush! Wow!

Wow, those shadows are lovely, Diane! I have to admit, though, that I have a weak spot for that sweet little quail... ;)
