I agree, I think it's a juvenile.

Thanks Mike. There were some Black-bellied Plovers on the beach that day.

That's very nice.
Unusual bird. Well done.
Black coloured birds are not the easiest to photograph. Oh. And cats  :p

Nice one Jan. I'll bet he got your camera all wet. :lol: He's sure got his eye on you.

Incredibly nice shot of that gorgeous bird, Charles. It's tack sharp, and so colorful.

Thanks Mike, I usually do not push brands at all. If it works for you and your happy so be it. However I am impressed with this iMac so far. It handles the 4k clips with ease and photo editing is really blazing fast from the windows machine I came from. I would highly recommend the iMac at this point. I bought on Saturday but so far the limited use I have had it was worth the upgrade.

Thanks for your response, Rob. How about the learning curve?...old folks like me don't like big learning curves.

That's spectacular Shalu. I've only witnessed it a time or two in my life. Beautifully done.

Rainy Sunday in the south.

Very nice, sharp shot, Gene. He'll be beautiful when he gets his full red color.
