  2. Cool, Harry! I don't think I noticed the Cattle Egret babies. The C.E. that I saw were all tucked in the back side of the trees.

    Is that sun I see on Frank's arm? It must've been Tues rather than Friday! :)

    Hey Kevin,

    It was easy to miss the CEs with all the traffic where there were nesting (in the middle of the tri-colors and snowys). That shot of Frank was from Tuesday during the only respite from the rain that we got that day.

    Nice series, Harry. Good shots all. Just one question - Exactly how does that last image fit the theme? :D

  13. What a fantastic place to shoot!! Really great series, Harry. It sure looks like you guys and gals had a fine time!!

  14. great stuff Harry! The three tri colors look like they are singing "Jerimiah was a bullfrog, was a good friend of mine"{but I ate him}
    the cattle egret shot is precious.
    The chump(oops chimp) shot is a hoot!
