    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.
