Cosmic Photo Challenge: Through an Opening

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Through an Opening.

I had a few ideas for openings for this prompt. As a bird photographer I have used a variety of openings from windows to holes in portable fabric hides (blinds). I decided to stick with one type of opening and settled on vehicle windows.

I decided to go with vehicle windows in part because I thought it would make the selection easier. Because the list of species is shorter than some of the other openings.

That was the theory, in practice I changed my selection at least four times before deciding to set some rules. Four photos, two bird species and two mammal species. Two species from Britain and two species from Canada.
