That's really a neat shot Darrell. I like the way the bird is posed.

Thank you for the nice comment on my Flickr page, Darrell. It's really just kind a thrown together...not nearly as nicely done as many others are.

No need for the Woodlands? Great portrait Phil.

Thanks Bill.

I still like to visit the Woodlands too. :)

What a Superb shot - Happy Thanksgiving.

OC.

Thank you.

As it turned out, I was pretty lucky on this one.

I saw her on a pole where I've seen her before, so I drove reasonably close and just pointed the camera up & fired a couple off. Then I proceeded to grab my beanbag & get it setup on the window so I could take some steady shots. Just as I did that, with the camera in the passenger seat, she flew off. :-/

I was really pleased when I got home & had this one.

Very nice capture!

That's an absolute cracker, Mike. Lovely colours and a lovely, calm effect to the water.

Your lucky catch turned out rather nice - well done.
