    Excellent shots Randy. Really like that 4th one, that soft foreground is very nice.
  3. Terrific shots Randy, vey well done.
  4. Excellent as always.
  5. Nicely done - My pic would be the gliding willet in 3.
  6. sweet as it gets.....................
  7. Great set.. With a little bit more real estate on the left side I could see the first image on a motivational poster in an office some where..Just needs a suitable caption.
  8. #3 is the nicest Willet shot I've seen. Common birds but nice looking when they open their wings.
  9. I agree!

    thanks, normally it would be near impossible to shoot these guys at 700mm HH but we noticed they were flying into the beach in front of us so the odds were way better
