Very nice, sharp image with a beautiful bokeh, Tom.

Beautifully captured, and so nicely composed Melissa.

Excellent capture of the drake wood duck, fotoi. I hope the next good storm cleans the rock up some. :p :lol:

Thank s Mike! They don’t seem to mind the duck poop on the rock too much.

Tremendous shot of this adult bird, Shalu. I like the overall color of the image. It make for a very attractive photo.

These are awesome images, Richard. You did a phenomenal job. The flower adds so much to the attractiveness and composition of the photos. The first shot is my favorite, and it would go up on the wall.

Many thanks for your generous praise.
Agree on the first, and I nearly didn't post second, but I was fascinated by the sequence of events unfolding at tme so threw it in.

I agree the first is sensational but the second photo shows something interesting about the bird, so I'm glad you "threw it in"!
