Have not had a chance to shoot any birds over the last 3-4 weeks finally got a few hours to shoot today and made it to the wetlands in Viera. Must be rusty as I only had a few keepers. These are a few of the OK ones. cc's welcome.

Very nice series. I love No. 1 the most for some reason I can't figure out. The background should be distracting with all those stalks, but it seems that the blur/bokeh of the green and yellow provides a perfect backdrop with some interesting pattern to contrast with the greyish subject. Very nice.

They Look pretty darn good from here Warren

It has been super slow around here!!
Thanks Gary.

Great captures, Warren. The second one - is it a baby heron?
Thanks Tim. It's an anhinga portrait.

It's a wonderfully sharp Anhinga.
Thanks.

I like these Warren.
It's hot as blazes here too (102)
Birds are hiding in the shade after 7:30AM

Thanks Fred. It is a challenge shooting in the harsh light.

Warren, fabulous shots all! Beautiful Great Blue; those birds tend to look washed out but your bokeh here really makes the bird pop!
