Richard - I' envious of your supply of great subject matter. Excellent shot .... again!

aa - that's one of the best whistling kites you've shown to date. The body anngle and head tilt were perfect - great catchlight too. Looks like ISO 1600 is not holding you back at all. BTW, I'm not evious that while I was working my butt off, you were out at the wetlands again. Somebody's got to drag this country out of recession .

BTW - here are a few more to add to the mix:

1 Egret


2 Egret


3 White Faced Heron


4. Lunar crossing


5. Whistling Kite:


6. Ditto:


7. It takes months of training to get pelicans to do this!
