Activity at Viera!

Discussion in 'Birds' started by flygirl1, Jun 16, 2007.

  1. Hello to all. Well, Gale, Robin and myself went to see what Viera had to offer this morning. There was certainly lots happening as far as the birds were concern, but as far as light, well, it could have been better. The morning started off nice, then the clouds seemed to just hang out until about 10:30. Anyway, we enjoyed the day and made the best of things. But, it is good to see Viera active again:biggrin:!! I got a few shots I thought I would share.

    A little midmorning delight!:tongue:


    A bit of loving afterwards:smile:


    And then there were the Spoonbills


    All the best
  2. Very nice, Nancy.

    The 2nd shot is lovely.
  3. Thanks Phil:smile:. I was a bit disappointed by the light because the Stilts eyes are so nice when lit a bit, but anyway it was great to watch and catch a few shots.

  4. Looks like a nice outing Nancy

    Hey Nancy,

    These are really nice! I like the diagonal composition of the Spoonies especially.
  12. Thanks a lot:smile:! I was trying to make something different, so I am glad you like it.

  13. Very nice set Nancy. Stilts are one of my favorite birds, unfortunately I've only found them once up here in the NW. Good job on these.

  14. Thanks:smile:. I would of love to have the better light, mostly for their eyes, but anyway, at least, I caught them in the act:tongue:.

    EDxcelelnt captures Nancy. Sorry that I had a previous engagement planned and couldn't join y'all.

  16. Thanks Harry:smile:. I think earlier in the morning was better, like around 7. There was a bit of cloud cover from around 8:30 to 10:30. But, the activity was sure good.
