Great shot! Love the water.

A really nice, clear shot of a bird I'm sure isn't easy to capture in a pose like that.

Wow, that's one of the meanest looking gulls I've seen. I wouldn't like to be on the receiving end of that beak.

There were adult Black-crowned Nigh Herons nearby so it probably was a juvenile. To me they look very similar to Green Herons.

Amazing shot, Shalu.
I went to college near you in the early 1960's, and I'm aware of some of the many wildlife areas in your vicinity.

Thank you, Mike! Oops, got confused, this one should be in the BIF thread :oops: :p

Thank you very much, Jack.
