Stunning pictures. Sharp and the colors are wonderful. What is that prehistoric looking critter third from the bottom?

Thanks one and all for the kind comments..

Regarding the image of the dinosaur, the Museum's web page states, "At the bottom (of a staircase) will be a scientifically authentic replica of a dinosaur that may have lived in the foothills of Virginia around 200 million years ago. Visitors will be able to touch real dinosaur footprints." So beyond it looking like a raptor in Jurassic Park, I have no additional information.

One other quick comment. While I cannot wait for spring, these close in encounters are neat, because fill flash may be used to great extent. It not only lights up the feathers and scales, but also allows the background to disappear into black.....

The catch-light in the second image really speaks to fill flash. What surprised me was the presence of two not one catch-lights. Perhaps the relfection of the flash off the water........
