Re: A few from Chicago

Hi Emil,

Outstanding series as usual, but I like that Spotted Sandpiper the most with one of his/her feet steping on a little plant of some sort.

Cheers,
AbBy

Re: A little bit from the SF Bayarea

Wow. These are probably your best Juvis so far. Are they letting you get closer? Congrats! JR

Re: A little bit from the SF Bayarea

Hi John,

Thanks for the compliment & yes the Juvies are about 12ft or so away but the little Avocets gets to be a little daring to the point that you can't shoot since they are too near.

Cheers

Re: A Mixed Bag

Hi John,

Very nice series & I don't think I would want a piece of the Juvy BCNH with his scrawny little legs! LOL BTW, I do like both images with that light!

Cheers,

That's a real shame they come too close Abby LOL
Nice work in this series!

Re: A Mixed Bag

Love that "want a piece of meee" shot, John. Unusual to say the least.

Re: So. Cal. Variety

I really like the Dowitcher, and the colors/detail and habitat on the heron.
