Terrific shot, Paul! That's a long piece of lumber to be hauling around.

thanks Mike for your kind and constructive comments.

That's the dad
this is his baby. Not sure how many as this is first I've seen though suspected they were nesting in the scrub

This is one cute little baby, Richard...or should I say fuzz ball? What a great shot! I might have to look into adopting this one.:lol:

This is a very interesting, colorful looking bird, Ed. I can tell from your 7DII that this image was taken a while back. It is a very nice, attractive looking photo!

Both the immature Great Blue Heron and the Reddish Egret are Awesome shots, Ed! I'm particularly fond of the Reddish Egret! It should hang on the wall for sure.

I had no idea they would. Wish I had gotten a better shot of it, but here's where he nabbed him.

An anhinga (edit: Correction, a double-crested cormorant) preening his back side and a little blue heron next to him just resting.

Great shot, JP. Be sure you keep this photo to show as proof that they will eat ducks.

Two quality shots that are very nicely photographed, Kirk! I believe the first shot is a double-crested cormorant and not an anhinga. I'm saying that because cormorants have those beautiful blue eyes, and the anhingas do not. Also Anhingas have pointed beaks that do not curve at the tip, like the cormorants beaks do. I love the shot of the blue heron. It is tack sharp and nicely composed. very appealing.
