The bird world was under observation this year. In fact, more photos of birds are being passed around on the social media than ever before. From those, we at KLYQ get to share some very fine efforts from Mike Daniels. From his pile o' pictures, we show you these three - the owl above, with its mouth wide open ... and scroll down for two Trumpeter Swan flight photos that look like paintings. Enjoy!
