    Thank You Flewwwwwww

    Just as you pass the water plant on the left around by the end of the building.
    I had just gotten the camera out. Saw two bunnies and stopped car hoping one would be still. They ran back in where they keep the tractors. Saw this guy out the corner of my eye and backed up a bit.

    Lots of water this year as you know. Water standing everywhere.
  6. cool shot Gale. I have not warmed up to the looks of these guys yet, but they sure are and interesting bird. is this the same species? I am not sure what he uses on his hair but sure seems proud of it!
