Couldn’t have posed them better if you had tried! :)
Excellent shot.

Thank you Park Ranger.
Happy trails.

Gone for 3+ weeks. Missed all the wonderful shots in this thread.

Robert this thread moves faster than a swallow on speed. It's hard to keep up even when you're not gone for 3+ weeks!

Really sharp and excellent photo!

That is an interesting out of focus high light. If it were me, I’d be going back there and trying to see what caused it. Soft and interesting effect.

Thanks Park Ranger! You are a wealth of good info!

Gorgeous Richard.

Thanks Robert.
3 weeks must have accumulated some beautiful scenery, birds. I'm looking forward to seeing your exploits.

You’re killing me ! :)

Only got one photo of them, a male. And it was with a Fuji something and rather hastily.
Beautiful birds and you nailed them.

Thanks!

If they see you, they'll never let you get close enough to get a decent shot. I was hiding in a natural "blind" with a camo cover on my lens and a ghillie hat w/face cover.

I've never seen one in town, but they're very common along a couple of my favorite hiking/photo trails.
