Mystery Duck Returns

  1. Hey everybirdy,

    No "real" mystery duck, but no doubt my duck icon has not appeared in this forum for quite some time!
    Travelled a bit in May and June and have since been fighting an incredibly wierd, almost debilitating sinus infection for over a month. This past week I've begun to sweep the proverbial mess on my hard drive of dozens of folders to cull and process because, I never stopped shooting, just couldn't sit at the PC for any length of time.
    Still not 100% healthwise, but heck I miss you guys! :redface::biggrin:

    A string from Viera, early July
    original.

    OH-IO
    Jealous am I of the stilts :biggrin:
     
  4. Great shots of the Black-necked Stilts. We have plenty in our retention pond (almost empty), but never saw them that super. They can be a noisy bunch.
     
  5. Beautiful. Never seen their chicks.
     
  6. Thanks all. it was a treat to watch the Stilts. The second chick had hatched the day before I shot these. They were still getting their legs about them, and finally after about an hour or so of going in and out of the water, the parents led them to the shore and safety of a thick clump of grass.
     
  7. An incredible set Tom and glad that you're back feeling a bit better. Sinus infections can be brutal. #2 shot is oustanding in all respects.
     
  8. Nice Tom! See you out there!
     
  9. Outstanding shots. Very well done.
     
  10. All beauties Tom!
    Looks like the Caracaras are having a good time.

  11. Tom,
    another excellent series, great stilts, and the bird pair, but I live this last one too.
