Thank you RobG, the Teal was a real treat to see, first time for me, and the Shovelers were fun to watch. I am glad you enjoyed them.

Appreciate the comment ajilec. I was able to get very close to this one. The heron was focused on it's next meal in this shot.

Thanks Ash! I really wish the hummingbirds would have came out better though. The light was a bit hard.
I am glad you enjoyed them and I love sharing.

Thanks a bunch Bob. The blackbirds are very active right now and easy to catch. I love the bright red on their wings. Hope to get an in flight shot soon.
