Getting caught up with my photos...these are from my trip last June. These guys all appear to have their own amusing personalities. They were so much fun to shoot...and they were everywhere, close too.

Love their expressions! Great shots! :)


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

Very nice images. That bird does not look comfortable with what he's standing on in the 1st shot.

These birds were a joy to photograph. Check out my other post "2 more BO's from The Salton Sea", now those guys are really strange. Thanks everyone for responding.
