Wonderful shots, Paul. The babies have vivid markings that are really pretty looking. The first shot of the family, is really nicely composed and quite attractive looking.

Thank you very much, Mike! These are water district ponds, I think the water is a bit too contaminated to eat the fish caught there  :p

The babies are so cute and look completely different from their parents.

Terrific shot, Shalu. Very nicely captured.

Back when I was teaching, I'd take a few of my kids down to the water district ponding basins. We never caught anything very big, but we did catch eating size bass. As far as I know, everyone of us lived after eating them.:mrgreen:

Yes it sure was nice to see those hatch-lings.
Habitat loss is alarmingly accelerated around these parts.

Vermilion Flycatcher. It was low light so had to use a tripod for the slow shutter speed. 600mm + 2x @1200mm

Wow Shalu...that's absolutely gorgeous!!
Check your math on the magnification you were shooting at. Actually is was only 120mm and not 1200mm.:-P:-P
