    I would be happy just to see these let alone photograph them! Nicely done.

    Neat captures Jeff. Where were these shot?
  5. What a great series, love that last shot - a LOT of emotion in it!! These are stunning birds.
  6. Thanks all-

    They were taken in Brooksville Florida- about an hour North of Tampa. There were a half dozen of them screaming around in the trees out at my parents house- chasing after each other.
  7. Really nice images here Jeff.
  8. Really great series. Love the birds.
