Ft D, Randy, Mitch,godwits, egret

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Allan, Mar 10, 2018.

  1. I went to Ft. De Soto this morning to meetup with Randy and Mitch. We shot marbled godwits in good light and the reddish egret in less than perfect conditions. Maybe the egret was taking the weekend off because it did not put on its fabulous dance.

  14. Very nice set. Sounds like a good trip.
     
  15. Yes!
     
  16. Definitely agree about #1! I'm going to add that there is a sweetness about #2, and #5 just makes me smile!
     
  17. There are no gators on this island. Raccoons are another story.
     
  18. (y)
    I stand corrected. :) 
     
  19. Nicely done, in spite of your company. ;)  Oh, there are gators around there. Never seen one at North Beach though.
     
  20. Very impressive set of photographs.
