Sword-billed Hummingbird, near-silhouette in the conditions there. I was surprised at the detail I could coax out of the shadows. Yanacocha, Ecuador.

Couldn't stand it, had to go back and take a boat tour on the Aransas NWR, wintering home of the Whooping Cranes. Next Monday hope to get some shots like these from Jan. 2018.

Maybe I can't see you, but I know what you're up to.:-D It's really cool looking how you caught the water droplets being thrown about, in all these recent shots.

Thank you very much, Mike! :lol:

I don't think he's going to let that one get away. The fish is being re-positioned, I think. It's going down the hatch just like the others have done. :-D
