It's funny. One day at Harris Neck NWR we saw at least 1000 Storks.
Went back the next day for more and there were none. Zero. Nip.
Glad I got there when I did. They packed their bags overnight.

That is a stunning shot, Shalu. You are the bird whisperer for sure. However in reading your post, I find a slight inability on my part to believe all the #%&*#$% that you spu forth. :-P:-P However, judging from the success of this photo, there must be at least some truth to the BS, :lol:

Thank you very much, Mike! The truth is, when you have plenty of opportunity to shoot certain actions, you can afford to get picky and only keep the good ones (good light, birds/prey facing the right direction, bright eyes, blah blah). But if you only have few chances, everything is a keeper! :-P:lol:

These are spectacular shots, Shalu. You are definitely catching them during the "sweet light."

Truly wonderful capture. So finely detailed and clear. Beautiful big bird.

Black-crowned Night Heron

Very nice, lovely 'pose', suspended in mid air
beautiful colours and composition

gorgeous. you must have light to spare.
Really enhances the fine details and colours of the owl.
Its like a hang glider or parachute descending onto the shrubbery.
A sight to behold.
