Alan, you're just teasing me to move up to more MPs.

ISV really nice shots.  I like to hear the commentary.

A couple from today... The Brant geese are not common around here.... these are the first ones that I have ever seen..... On the other hand, it is rare that I go for a paddle and do not see a heron...

I’ll repatriate a Canada goose for him.

Thanks Jack!
For me these commentary/observations, as well as the story behind  the shots are about as important as the photos themselves ( I really hope I don't bother anyone with this stuff?).

clbayley and Don - very nice shots! Don, I like your Brant better than the heron despite I still have not seen any of them here (but they are coming time to time...). This year we had both of them (if I'm not wrong about the Brant)... on different islands :), something like one of each :: ;D!

The goose had perfect lighting and just hung around eating grass. I would have had to work real hard to miss that shot :). The heron was standing in fairly deep shade and I shot it at 600mm with a Tamron 150-600, at slow shutter speed (I believe 1/100 second) from a canoe while being blown past in a strong wind. I was amazed that it turned out so well.... there should have been considerable motion blur, but I guess I got lucky this time..... I find it amazing what you can get away with using modern cameras.
