I really enjoy your photography, especially the birds, but all of your photos generally. Did you study photography along with biology or is photography a skill you developed on your own?

That's a really cool photo.

What a cool event to have watched. I can only imagine the pile of dust this one kicked up by the time he was done with his bath!

Better than no bath at all. Lucky sighting and great capture. You often are at the right place at the right time.

Like a new pair of tennis shoes, they just don't look right until you get some some dirt on them.

Nice. =) Amazing they're so white. Whenever my chickens are taking a dust bath, I feel that all is well in the world. They DO so enjoy it. =)

Lovely shot - but I feel like shouting... stop messing up that beautiful whiteness!

What fun that you managed to be able to witness and photograph this wonderful display.

Great action shot, I can see the force of dust being kicked up.
