Shots like this are why I get up at 4 in the morning to go to a damn cold lake.

Awesome shots, Buddy. Were these taken at Conowingo? I have been to Conowingo many times in the past 2 years, but the birds just would not cooperate with me. They'd rather hang around on the far side instead :-(

Congrats on the well executed captures.

Yes, these are at Conowingo. Like you, I've had bad days (today was bad) and good days. These shots were a few weeks back.

This is much less dramatic, but still love the background when birds fly against the distant forest at Conowingo.

Nice! Were you set up on the rocks for these or on the platform?

Great captures. I agree about the background in the third - sets the bird off nicely.
