Awesome catches Bob !! A variety of birds and also a variety of fish life.
Like Judy says, you couldn't have times it better in the third shot. Nice job.

Excellent series...and that reddish egret is just beautiful. The pelican shot is the shot of the month! What a great catch! Well done Bob.

Great shots, but that Pelican shot is a wallhanger for sure.

Me too I think... but the first 3 are all really terrific. Excellent shots.
The Glossy Ibis shot is soft, and tho it captures the appropriate moment nicely for this feeding series, I must wonder if you didn't get some nice sharp ones of him too. ?

Very nice set Bob,
