The Gator Farm in St Aug is the easiset and toughest place I may have ever shot. Birds are everywhere, close and far away, sitting still and flying, all surrounded by poop covered leaves as backgrounds and the babies are back under all this heavy cover. And the place is wall to wall with shooters and tourists.

Here are a few from my trip last week.

Great set Randy! If you capture the birds and action as you have, natural backgrounds are ok with me. Last picture "no one gets anything until I do!"

6 is amazing. Great interaction between the Mom and young. #4 is my favorite of the set though. I always enjoy your images on here, another excellent set.
