Beautiful! Yes!

Wonderful light and supurb captures? Yes!

You ever seen the goof-balls land on a branch? No? Well they always over-balance and teeter forward - they are NOT graceful! Must be their exceltionally long face....

Haha they are a bit funny looking for a bird.

Very nice series Jonathan. Love the light and reflections.
Thanks david! Good to hear from you..where have you been hiding:biggrin:

Those are some beautiful images! That last one is especially impressive.
Thanks a bunch glacier.

Very nice set Jonathan.

Thanks Louie..I was glad and blessed to see so many on my trip.

That first one should be printed large and hung on your wall it is stellar
Hey mike! Venturing into the bird forums ehh:wink: :biggrin: I have another spoony with the colors of the last one and reflection of the first but its a bit of a tighter crop and the water colors are somewhat darker than the first. I will print one though that is for sure..decisions decisions:biggrin:

I agree Jonathan, beautiful subjects and excellent images.
Thanks frank! I have been enjoying your merritt shots and other users merritt shots as well.

Pretty colors, nice shots, Jonathan!

I have to admit I have mixed feelings about this species ... looks a little dinosaur-ish and scary. :eek: I don't see them over here ... maybe if I were used to them I'd realize they're okay?!
