This will be my last pic for a while, going to Florida for a few days. Not for photography but hopefully I can manage a few shots while I am there.

Gorgeous. Colours and detail are amplified by the setting.
Beautifully composed.
Very nice indeed.

Thank you very much for your comments, Richard!

Ready to take off. Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 + 2x TC

That's amazing photo.
Interesting. Doesn't look as though it has enough room for lift off.
Never thought about it until I saw this photo but they nest or roost in places where it looks tight.
Amazing birds.
Rather unique (for me) photo.

You're going to one of the best birding places in the US, I imagine you'll figure out a way to fit some photography in  :p

The bird experts around here tell me this is a Red-throated Loon. Shot on a foggy day, it was a first for this lake and this area.
