All shots here taken with the A6600 and the FE 200-600mm G OSS combo, and are posted at 1800 pixels on the long side if you view them in original size:

My favorites this time: These herons breeding colors are quite beautiful:

A tricolored heron, in breeding colors, flying close by as he banks around over the plant-covered waters

Great sight of this wood stork with a full beak load.

Shooting right into the sun as this wood stork tore off a cypress branch as nesting material and was flying back to its nest - I liked the washed out, backlit look that shooting into the sun caused, and the glow coming through the wood stork's wing

It really does look amputated! Great catch, and very impressive moody pose.

This yellow-crowned night heron truly looked to have only one leg (he didn't) - they can pull that leg so far up in their feathers that they look amputated. But that's just their resting habit - to stand on one leg for a long time, then switch out to the other

Thanks for sharing!
