    Hanging around the pond as much as I have, I've seen this behavior before, but haven't ever been able to capture images that show the action as well as you did on these Stuart.

    Nice set.

    Spectacular Stuart! The feet are incredible. I like the second shot and the fourth shot especially.

  6. Wow! Never shot this sequence before. Well done!
     
  7. Nice series Stuart!

  8. I have heard, but not seen, that occasionally the "looser" does not escape as this one did, but rather ends up being stood on and held underwater until drowning.

    You did an excellent job of catching the action, Snake!
     
  9. WOW! That's what I call action! Great job in capture! And yeppers, those birdies do have big feet!:eek:
