Haven't been online much lately, nor have we gotten to get out & shoot much but we did spend a nice long weekend down on the TX coast last week.

Man, have I gotten rusty.... Lol! These are a couple from the Mrs.

That intense stare gives me kind of an eerie feeling when I stare back at this guy. Terrific shot, Rob!

Paul, you have an innate ability to capture the most awesome images! This two shot series is so impressive! I would most definitely hang one or both of these shots on the wall.

This is a beautiful capture, Steve! The overall subtle colors, plus the sharpness of this shot, make it very attractive.

Lovely three shot series of this belted kingfisher, Theresa! Very nice work. I especially like the third shot, which shows water droplets flying in all directions.

Beautiful closeup, Mike.

Thank you very much, fotoi.

Many thanks Mike. Your encouragement and kind comments are very much appreciated.
The plover was a grazing shot but made so by the curve in the topography. No belly crawling :-P
The male wren does seem to have an easy life but I have seen them contribute when it comes to collecting food.
Watching this one with interest :-)

He's a beauty Mike. Handsome fella.
Nicely puffed up for his mugshot.
They are a beautiful colour.

Happy trails.

Thank you for the wonderful praise, Paul. As always your compliments are very kind and encouraging.

steveb108 wrote in post #19294343 (external link)
Thanks, Mike! I looked at the habitat map for Merlins and thought it would be more common for you westerners. It's not super-rare here but it's not that often we see them either. I spent several years trying to see my first, then, a few years back in the dead of winter at a frozen lake, 3 Merlins showed up at the lake's edge trying to get a sip of water from a thawed area. You never know how this birding game will go. Good luck getting yours!

Thank you very much for your great reply to my post, Steve. It's very thoughtful of you to take the time to do this.
