This is a truly gorgeous shot, Irene! It looks like a live bird, and not a photo!

Very nice shot, fotoi! It's interesting, because the pose of the two ducks, looks as though they are sneaking up on something.

Very beautiful.

Thank you Rose. I appreciate the kinds words.

Thanks Mike. It's a pleasant day when I first see the returned (for the winter) White Pelicans. I just love photographing them.

How's the R5 working? Samples I seen indicate things are going well. :-)

Beautiful. The colours, details and reflections are so very nice.

This too Jose is excellent.
Beautiful composition, light, colours.
Very nicely presented.

In both, the water is simply lovely.
