Very nice shot Bill!
You're giving Paothong of the Missouri Conservationist a run for his money!

What am I seeing on its front right side?

Flattering to be put in that company Bob,I met Mr.Paothong couple years ago,
doudt if he even remembers,immensly talented person,who does "maximum"
with "minimum".Look foward to his work monthly.Spot on heron is where wing
meets body,a wear point,if you will.Little later in day one would see bird grooming and
preening "adjustments".
This Pic is same location,different bird,just minutes after shot above,can see same area at "wing root"

Thanks Bill! Actually not many birds stay here for the winter so all egrets on my recent pictures are the same..so what I do is regularly check their "places"..really looking for the warm weather when all the birds arrive home.

Looks like a system that works quite well for you Andras.Our herons from area tend
to stay around in winter(They'll dig ground),egrets needs seem more specific
so they usually go south,looking foward to their return too.This is from last fall
water levels in mississippi river basin dropped and concentrated thousands of
egrets in general area as seasonal movement was taking place.Thousands of
white pelicans joined in and turned it into a "free for all"
Great shot on the mallards BTW.

Went to the woods tonight hoping to see a bluebird that I saw yesterday, but did not get a good shot of it. No bluebird tonight, but saw these:

Sealons, I really like that first deer shot, it's like they are posing.

Bill & Andras, keep those great birds coming! I'm hoping to catch some Friday afternoon if the weather is decent. I planning on going to Killdeer Plains. It's an 8000 acre wildlife refuge, I've been there a couple of times, feel I know it a little better and can make better use of my time. Hope I'm right! Last year I saw a bald eagle and a red tailed hawk in the same tree, watching different directions, however they were too far off for a good shot, and they were both keeping an eye on me. This is some of what I seen in early April last year:
Frog:

Eastern Garter Snake, this little guy came out of the grass and was slithering as fast as he could across the road to get away:

Eastern Meadowlark:

SpecialK, That's nice to have that area so close, hope you are getting a lot of variety.

Littledrawe, nice Hawks, I love them too, beautiful birds.

Andras, nice set, I like the snake and the mallard.

Not sure of the breed of the duck, or is it a coot?:

Lovely shots Andras, especially like the 3rd one of the Heron. Very crisp. You make my longing for the day when I shall own a K5- long way off.

thanks! I have to admit that that picture was taken with the K-x and the da50-200 kit lens..that's the proof that expensive equipement is not always a must for a good capture..timing, preparation or simply luck is much more important!
