I'm spoiled mate. I can go to the biggest dams/lakes/wetlands around Brizzy and not see a single one. Up the road less than 1k away is a park with a "settlement pond". It was created to settle run off from the local road and has a kids playground. I've seen spoonbills. Muscovies, grebes, ibis, egrets, herons, even a black shouldered kite once which seemed to be picking over a piece of discarded KFC.........never even thought to photograph them (except the Kite which I missed) as...............meeeh​..........it's just a park.............famil​iarity breeds contempt eh?

Pushed the 100-400ii and the 7Dii to the max on cropping to pull this one off. I'd swear this bird
was 1/8 mile away, probably wasn't that far but it was a long ways off. Of course the sky in Panama was
very much like the sky here at home.

Nice one!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).
