Hi Mike...I really like this one. You've captured a beautiful scene with a beautiful bird by a very competent photographer.

It's pretty rare for a Snowy to visit the DC region and even more unexpected that it would set up shop atop DC's Union Station, from which it hunts neighborhood pigeons and rats. Tough conditions for photography as it hunts at night requiring jacked up ISOs and slow shutter speeds; this was shot with ambient light (not much of it) using a tripod.

Thank you kindly Mike.
That Anhinga was tenacious. It ingested 5 fish in under 15 minutes.:-)
Happy trails.

Holy smokes, Paul! That Anhinga is a true glutton.:lol:

Great close-up portrait shot of this ring-necked hen, Manny! On this duck, I can actually see the ring around her neck. I still think they should have been named "Ring-billed ducks.":-)

Great portrait, Mike. Undistracted and great composition.

Lovely shot Mike, light, composition and the bird all very nice. And with a dslr too!!!
cheers! :)

Many thanks, Sid. Your encouraging comment is very uplifting. The old dslr has always been a reliable travel companion.

Great shot of the Scrub Mike.
They have that awesome comical, friendly personality.

Thanks so much, Paul! I love their personality too. These guys can certainly be entertaining.
