    Wanted to wish all Cafe members a Happy Thanksgiving full of good food, great images, and even greater laughs :wink:

    Here's a few shots to look at while the Turkey finishes cooking :biggrin:

    Great Egret in evening light

    NH fly by

    My favorite Raptor

    My favorite Ducky

    Wonder where there going
  2. Ben-Nice bird series. I like the first one with the reflections. And Raptors are just cool! What kind of duck is that? He is very colorful.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Hey Mark
    Glad you like. The duck is a Wood Duck (male)
  4. Superb as usual Ben, #1 really pulls me into the scene...

    Glad you got some of the BCNH, he's a social fellow ;)

    Ben -

    All great shots. Least favorite - the "bird" in the last one looks a little mechanical to me and is so far away the an ID is impossible.:tongue: My favorite by far - the first. The light, setting and exposure are all perfect! :biggrin:

    Thanks Heiko
    When I shot that I was thinking were are those folks going, and maybe which I could go too, anyway besides the look that's what drew me to shoot it that way.

    Really glad you like.
