Gorgeous shot of the mandarin duck. He'd better be careful of those piranhas that are circling him. :p

Beautiful, sharp shot Rob. I like that softly colored background...nice bokeh.

Great shot of this Ibis. I saw 50 White Ibis in a field two days ago but they were several hundred yards away and no chance of a decent photo.

Thank you Doc. This is one bird I can get pretty close to. As a kid, we never had any (zero) in our area, and now they are quite plentiful. The same thing is true of cattle egrets.

You caught the colours well there, Mike.

Thank you Jack. As you well know, these guys can be difficult to get with their colors really showing well.

I would have probably hesitated to push the button on that shot Tom, and obviously would have missed a cool opportunity. Very nice; I sure do like this one.

Thanks Mike...
