Nice shot, Shalu. I'm kind of fascinated by the upper body (head, chest, back) color variations within this species. Some are sooty black and orthers are brown. I originally thought it was a gender difference, but apparently it is not.

Nice great egret shot, Shalu. It looks like that tasty treat is headed for the dungeon.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Fantastic shot, Mike! Looks like the right one was doing some sweet talking.

Thanks so much Shalu.

It's either sweet talking or scolding. I'm not sure which. :p

Really nice shot of the goldfinch, Shalu.

One day in Spring, it's as if the entire population of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers suddenly appear. They're cute little buggers, except from far away they always trick me into thinking there's a rare Warbler or something flitting about  :p
