  • The Purple Swamphen is a fairly new addition to the bird species found here in southern Florida and some other areas in the USA. Here is the North American version of the Swamphen.
  • Paul, many thanks for your kind remarks. Yes, the GBH swallowed it whole - one piece head first.

  • Many thanks for your aid in identifying the Greater Yellowlegs. My original thought was the same as yours but was unsure.

  • Pretty images, especially of the 2 BIF.
  • The images I am posting this week were made at the Peaceful Waters Wetlands in Wellington, FL. All made with the E-M1 and the 75-300mm lens at ISO 400. Lesser Yellowlegs. 1/800, f/6.4, +0.7 EV, 246mm.
  • You have captured a very nice series. The images appear sharp. Why don't you crop the photos and bring the resulting larger images to the front, filling up the frame?
