I did some digging and found a few images tossed aside and one Skimmer that I wanted to reprocess. Shooting has been non-existent so far here this spring. Bad weather on the weekends and a lingering winter have made the birds scarce. So before I completely drop off the grid here's a few.

Steve, Steve, Steve..... the more things change, the more they stay the same. Such as the fantastic quality of your images. How does one actually pick a favorite? Short answer..... one doesn't. They are all my favorites.

Superb job, my friend. Now it's I who hates you. :D

You and your images will never fall off the "grid' my friend. Great images once again Steve

Always look forward to seeing your imagery Steve whether on or off grid.
Again you've brought some "discards" back to life in a very pleasing fashion. The Egret portrait has such a pleasing array of hues with a great pose, and your capture of the Avocet makes it look so delectably delicate that these 2 are my favorites.
And since Spring is so late for us, please feel free to rummage through your discards some more - :)

Beautiful images Steve. I was planning on selecting the first as my choice but then saw the rest. They are all exceptional.
