Thomas, very nice set. Your Bittern shots are super and you sure captured some very interesting poses. The Stilt inflight shot is sweet, these guys sure do chatter to you when you disturb them don't they.

Louie

Thanks Louie. You're not kidding about the chatter, if they are around and you're setting up for a nearby bird, they can and often do, blow the whole approach. They are fun though!

Love the spoonies. I do that pose during yoga, only the non-standing leg wraps around the front rather than the back. Maybe I'll suggest to my instructor the new "Spoonbill Pose" and we'll all wrap the other way...

Thanks all, for checking in. Evryone enjoyed that last image as did I. I thought it was kinda funny how he ahd turned around on the reeds and came back under that way, and the fact that he froze for a few seconds, I made sure I got at least one keeper out of it!
