  1. Hi all. One week the RWBB's were bothering the caracara's, flying all around them. What pests they were! Then the next week I caught this couple preening and lovin! I hope that means babies!!:biggrin: Both taken with the D300 and Nikon 500 f4

    Nancy:

    I see your RWBB's are just like ours -- FEARLESS! Here they don't like eagles, and treat them with as much disdain as yours treat Caracaras! Your Caracara images make me wish to be back at Viera.
     
  7. Nancy these are terrific pictures. I really hope to see one of these birds some day.
     
  8. Hey, I know that limb! Nice ones Nancy. Glenda and I both recognized the spot and it took us right back to a great week in February.
     
  9. Thank you so much all!!!:biggrin: I really did not know how well these came out till I got home and then I was thrilled. I suppose THAT tree and these birds might be called the icons of Viera for sure. I hope the memories they bring back are happy ones to all!:smile:

  10. I'll put my money on the RWBB. *-) Always like seeing pics of the caracaras. Nicely done Nancy. Wish I had these birds around here. Guess I'll have to put up with the ospreys instead. Can't wait to get back to the East coast to shoot some of these guys.
     

  11. Thanks Mike!:smile: Yes, Viera has most everything, great place!!
