    Not much this morning. But the kingfishers are back. Which means hours of frustrating effort to try to get close again. They are so shy. I need a bigger lens! But that is for the lens lust thread. I did manage some shots of them. I cropped them about 50 %- 60%, maybe too much, let me know what you think.
    One flew right at me and it is just a bit out of focus. It could have been so good! sigh

    Nice shot on the glossy! Amazing how the light plays with the colors on those birds.

    So did you perform mouth to beak resusitation, chest compressions, or just the Heimlich on that grebe?
  6. Super series! Can't wait to get back there!

  7. Ugh!! :rolleyes: Those Kingfishers are back!! You got better ones than I"ve ever had!
    Nice series Jesse. Should be running around just about every afternoon next week, maybe I'll run into you!
