Nice shot, Mike. No wonder my wife said this photo reminded her of me.-?

Excellent portrait of the Black-crowned Night-Heron, Harry. Very nice and sharp with a great background.

Love the light and its effects on the water and bird.

Very nice photo. I like the composition.
Agree on your description. I look at these photos and think similar.
A cricket umpire in a country match comes to mind.

I've never seen a country cricket match, or a cricket umpire, but it sure sounds good to me anyway. So I'm going to agree with both you guys, Blue Traveler & Richard. :lol: :p

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Very cool shot, Tom. I really like this one. All the colors are so attractively displayed in this image, and the waves breaking in the background are really nice.

GBH. The poor guy looked pretty crusty and beat up. I wonder if he's in his golden years?
