    Not bad for a shaky old man ;c)

    Getting these shots at these shutter speeds is quite a feat, even if you did use a monopod! So, tell the truth, you've got a handful of grubs & worms you're luring them in with, don't ya? :wink:
    You are gonna show me where to find all this good quarry when I get down there, aren't ya? Can't keep it all to yourself! :p

    Hey, really good talking with you again this morning, and thanks for the "virtual tour" of the area! Best to Mary!

    PS, like the redo w/more contrast!
  6. Really neat images Harris. You gotta love the little ones.
  7. It's so tender, Harris. Sweet pictures. Thanks for sharing.
  8. Harris, you've outdone yourself! These photos are superb!
