  1. went by the highschool to catch some Sandhill flight shots. there was a woodstork feeding away. the head is slightly soft, I think from motion. It was low light. Still, caught him flipping..
    original.
     
  2. Another nice catch Harris. Wish we had some of these around here.

    Harris, you are the only guy that I know that gets bug flips. :smile:

    Good catch. :wink:

    BTW, I've been going through my Sanibel shots from last November, and I'm getting a really bad itch to go back. What a great place. Interested?
     
  4. Nice Shot great timing on this one.
     
  5. Actually I was watching him in the retention pond. He uses one leg to scratch under the water, and picks around with his beak. He came up with what looks like a tadpole. Not sure it is a bug, it was underwater. :cool:

    Thanks Harris. It may be after the end of the year before I can afford to come back for more than a weekend too. I'll keep everyone updated, and I hope that you, Mike, and anyone else interested will do the same.
