    Well...my buddies weren't exactly sitting in what I'd call artistic spots this morning, but I did the best that I could with the one hour that I had...it was rather overcast as we've got a nor'easter coming this weekend and the clouds had already snuck up the coast. There was just enough sun peaking through to illuminate the birds a bit.

    Yellow Legs....

    A Pair of yellow legs...as the light was low I couldn't increase the ISO anymore without inducing some noise and therefore the back bird is a tad out of the DOF.

    A resting yellow legs...I don't typically see them squatting....

    And lastly...a male Great Egret with green breeding colors on his face...

    Jim,

    I know that these probably aren't what you went out looking for, but they really are very good. Probably very marketable too.

    BTW, I have something very important that I need to discuss with you. Can you give me a call?

    Thanks.
