Exceptionally nice shot!

Thanks, Mike.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

That was the only time I saw one. With very low light, my shot is not as sharp as I wish it was :oops:

Nice pic! But we don't need four more Canada geese. :-(

It took me hours to get a decent shot of this Indigo Bunting. They just love sitting higher up in trees, so it's difficult to get a clear, non-sky hole shot.

Great bunting shot. It was worth the wait.

Ha, ha, ha...Thank you, and you are so right about not needing any more Canada geese. With all the ponding basins throughout the country they breed like rabbits, with an amazingly high survival rate (no predators in the ponding basins due to the high fences that they all have surrounding them). However, it does make us waterfowl hunters happy. :-)

Both images are excellent, but I have to admit, I love the shot of the bunting.

Much appreciated, Mike, thanks! Gorgeous little bird, first time seeing one in person for me!
