The last two photos seem to have a violet cast to the water... it was weird light, but I will try and "fix" that when I get a chance. Or just leave it. lol

Beautiful Cormorants. Detail is awesome.

I'm working through some older images. This is a young ruby-throated hummingbird from two summers ago.

Love the motion in the wings and the 'halo' bokeh.

Thanks Robert. I will have to go back to this spot again really soon... tons of great waterfowl. These cormorants were closer than they ever are at the lagoon I usually shoot at near my house - I would need much more than 560mm there! Or.. perhaps I just picked the best moment of the day without knowing it. lol

Cheers

This beautiful little bird is a Female Blackcap, the males having a black cap. Although they are fairly common in the UK it is not often they are seen.
