You guys have it nice ;-)a

I was visiting my family in North Carolina this past week, and their backyard (with feeders) backs up against a pine/deciduous mixed woods. Insane amounts of bird activity, and I didn't even have to hide, just sat in a lawn chair and snapped away. So relaxing and fun not having to stalk through the woods hoping to see a bird for a change. Along with that, got a few hours on the beaches and marshes around Charleston, SC... birding paradise. It'd be amazing to have access to those environments on a regular basis.

Back to the normal grind :cry:

Life is good .... Matt. And yes.. it’s very amazing at times.

Nice shot Steve. I agree with you. I too think it's a lesser yellow legs.

Thanks for the comment and ID verification Mike.

Ouch...that's gotta hurt. I hate to see that little guy get caught. Very nice shot Paul. Sharp as a tack.

Thanks Mike.
I wonder if that Heron has a severe case of indigestion.:lol:

I think so Paul. I can only imagine what it must feel like coming out the other end. :lol: Ouch!

I tried my best but couldn't get eye-level. It was not possible at the location I was standing. Somehow managed this shot.
