    They are beautiful
     
  3. 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....
     
  4. Very nice series Jonathan. Love the light and reflections.

    Thanks gale! Brings back fond memories of shooting in florida

    Haha they are a bit funny looking for a bird.

    Thanks david! Good to hear from you..where have you been hiding:biggrin:

    Thanks a bunch glacier.

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

    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:

    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?!
