We are blessed to have a pond in the back yard which attracts all variety of birds and wildlife. This morning, my wife and I sat down to do our morning meditation, and I spotted this lovely GBH sitting in the middle of the pond. Usually they fly away whenever I approach, but this fellow was happy to sit for at least an hour as I snapped over 170 shots. As the wind rose and fell, the lighting in the water kept changing, so every shot is different. These shots below are two of my favorites. 7D, 100-400L at 400, tripod, PP in CS5. C&C always welcomed.
