I love your Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. Very nice shot Jack.

+1...and I'm glad you filled us in on your treepod. I was considering building one too ;D

This is an HDR treatment.  Five bracketed exposures combined in Photomatix.  I was actually only about 6' away from this goose as I was shooting.  Looks farther because I was maxed zoomed out on my 24-70 2.8L II.  I spent 30 minutes in the water inching my up on him.


And this is what was directly behind my back. This was taken 10 minutes after the previous shot but turned 180 degrees in the opposite direction.

I live in Northwest Florida and this flock of Canada geese has taken up permanent residence.  They've been around for several years and never go home to Canada.  They gather in this same spot every night taking advantage of the free feed that is thrown out by two or three women that come here every evening with buckets of corn and bread scraps.

Free food and no income tax. It doesn't get any better. ;D
Really nice photos :)

Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) by alabang, on Flickr

The Little Egret is more delicate-looking than any other heron-like bird which occurs in Britain. It is much smaller than a Grey Heron, with snowy white plumage, a long pointed black bill and black legs with strikingly yellow feet.
Habitat

Feeds by the edges of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, brackish lagoons and saltpans. Breeds in waterside trees and bushes.
Behaviour

The plumes which are present in spring serve to emphasise the threat and appeasement gestures given at the nest.
Migration

Most of the European population migrates west and south, mostly to north Africa but also, to an increasing degree, to the european side of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts. After fledging, juveniles disperse almost randomly from July to September. This movement is presumably governed by prevailing feeding conditions.

A few birds with some fish. Little buggers fly like darts and trying to catch them in flight is a pain.

Really nice. I like #3. What are those square shapes in the lower left portion of #3?

Two from this afternoon. My heron caught a big fish but I missed the shot since I still had the camera on mirror lockup (from last night trying to shoot the super moon...very overcast so I didn't get any good ones). 7D, 70-200L 2.8ii @125mm, 1/1600s, F/6.3, ISO 400.
