I forget how much I love what we do until I can't do it for awhile.

Suffice to say it felt really great to get out shooting again. Really great.

These are my favorites. All C&C are always encouraged and most appreciated.

Hey, look who the cat dragged in! Welcome back my friend and with an OOT set too. Let's start with a backwards skimmer...needs some remedial skimming lessons I think. Brilliant series and I suggest you get rid of the dead leaf in....wait, there are no dead leaves to remove....splendid and yes, abstinence makes the heart or whatever grow fonder...I think that's how it goes

Kirk, have missed your gorgeous shots ! So glad you were able to get out. This is a stunning set as always.
No favorites as each one is truly lovely. Looks like you and the 500mm are made for each other

All are beauties with the skimmers stealing the show. Oh, I forgot about the godwit.
I think you should add some leaves, just to throw people off.
I hope you didn't get these all in one outing; that would make me want to visit!!

Ummmm....................Heeeeeeeeee's baaaaaaaaack

Seeing your work and hearing your enthusiasm is always a reward for me Kirk That was a long hiatus and I am sure that wore heavily on your mental well being but talk about a comeback, holy guacamole my friend!

Love the Skimmers and the comps on them............cool pose on the 'stick bird' too, fantastic grab on the Cormie passing by, that head shot is an eyeful of a treat, beauty in that wing spread Godwitt, fine control on the Wood duck on highlights and color and a very peaceful Bluebird finish

Wonderful set buddy and welcome back, yes I missed you

Hi Kirk! Great to see you posting again. A wonderful set of images, all well captured and presented.
I really love that calm water in the skimmer shots. "Cutting' Glass" are the right words.
What a beautiful display of the top wings in the Marbled Godwit shot!
These are all great and a true pleasure to see

Great looking set of shots, really like the Skimmers and that Cuttin Glass shot and certainly liked the colors and light you have in the Western Bluebird shot

A wonderful set, Kirk, with a signature-like style of warm colors, low perspective, razor-sharp detail and action, and the enthusiasm that keeps us all engaged! Those skimmers are simply superlative. I have no idea what Eric is talking about. Not the leaf, but the acronym. (I might have said "over the top" or "out of the park" but OOT?)
