Nice photos and, yay, someone to follow on Google + who isn't writing about tech, but could someone explain the significance of 1150 pixles?

All my googling seems to do is find pages linking back to Photoextract.com

Cannot get to any of those links.

Beautiful shots (the birds), thanks! Like so many sites with beautiful images, it should lose the idiotic captions.

These are beautiful, though the lack of identification of the birds is something that drives me crazy. What kinds of eagles are those?

Stunning photos, but yeah, the site could use a bit of retooling. No RSS feed?

Those birds look great!

Wonderful. Thanks!

was I the only one expecting to see Big Bird crudely photoshopped into nature?

Am I mistaken, or does the title of the page imply 14 photos, but the page only has 10?

Too much time on reddit has me captioning all of the bird shots with HATERS GONNA HATE in my head. Beautiful shots, though. Birds are fun to go after, and hard enough when they're standing still (which most of the time isn't for very long).

I was anticipating hdr shots of Big Bird in the wild, tending his nest and eggs with his... ummmm, life partner.

Yeah, there probably wouldn't have been any eggs.

The black swan family is a heck of a shot. Bravo.

Damn, sexyrobot, I really need to read all whatever, 14 comments, before posting.

My parrot really enjoyed those gorgeous bird shots. I did too.

Was expecting pictures of Big Bird. Am underwhelmed accordingly.

Found the perfect wallpaper for my new Atrix! Score. Was also expecting a man in a large yellow bird suit.
