Good stuff, Andy! My fave has to be the Hoodies because of all the effort you took to get 'em just right. So you're in Florida now? You must love it there will all those teeming birds.

Best Wishes,
Steve

Hey Andy, now I see where you've been hiding. Great set of photos. My favorite is #11. Nothing beats seeing a merg at eye level.

Thanks Ron. Those Kingfishers always play it hard to get but I managed to sneak up on them occasionally.

Hi Harsha, thanks for taking a look. I see you have a taste for narrow DOF images.

Hi Steve,

Florida is something special. I've spent parts of a year in FL for the past 20 years so I know the areas really well. There are places where the "birds grow on trees", and the variety is oh so wonderful. For the Hoodies, since they're so skittish I figured we better get ourselves in the water (this was at a shallow pond, no alligators!) and waited for them to ignore us. Sure enough they went on chasing the females and forgot to pay attention to the cameras.

All the best,

Andy
