Gosh it has been ages since I have posted anything. Went to a friend's local swamp, had a ball, and as usual, took thousands of images, but these are a couple of my favourites.

It quite obvious that the love affair with Huey is still going strong, Tina! :)
Most excellent images with great IQ. Love the low angle.
Great to see you posting again!

Yikes! I think I'm going to have nightmares tonight! The creature from the black lagoon!
Great shots, though, Tina; I agree with Levina about the angle and the detail.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I wonder what an 800mm lens looks/feels like! Alas, some things must remain in the realm of fantasy...

Two fine shots there Tina. As others have said, good choice of shooting position bringing the viewer in at the bird's level.
