    Kevin and I ran across these guys near merritt island a few months ago during MI4. Needless to say I underexposed them a bit :arghh: Some unusual crops due to the crowded enviroment. ENjoy


    There was quite a large group there..getting isolated shots was nearly impossible:biglaugh:

    Nice assortment you have there. I like the muted colors in these with the first and last being my favorites. Terrible problem having so many birds to shoot huh? :tongue:
