Hi Wiebe.
A couple of very nice shots there.
I know what you mean, at our local public Hide there is a sign at the top of the path requesting all dogs on a lead, some of us want it changed to no dogs, why bring a predator to look at wild animals?
Yes I know dog lovers say he's cute he won't hurt anything, but wildlife is hard wired to recognise a predator and they all go away somewhere safe when they see this funny looking WOLF.

Then of course there is the "squirrels come to the noise of people there to feed them (Pavlov anyone?) and the birds leave when it gets noisy" argument! ;D

Cheers, Graham.

and in several cases too many other people not aware of the skittishness of birds...) :(

Thanks for your comments Graham & Click

Does this one qualify as BIF ;)?
... or just as "Bird on the run"  ;D

Hi Wiebe.
Takeoff, the point at which the weight is supported partially by aerodynamic lift and partially by the ground? (My definition not from a dictionary.) So it probably does count.  ;D ;D
Either way it is a cool action shot, nicely done!

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Kieth.
Very nice.
Did the pelicans fly right over the boat? Are pelicans there like seagulls here, so common you don't look or did no one on the boat notice them.  :o

Cheers, Graham.

Busy on the bay.

Hi Keith,

Nice counterpart for "Planes, trains and automobiles"... yours is Planes, Boats and Pelicans ;)
Well done! SF Bay near Alcatraz?

One of our local Red Tailed Hawk juvies took a spin over the grassy portion of the estuary Sunday morning.  Last frame before wing clipping really became the norm.
