    Wow….what an amazing site to see! Well captured, Byron…love that you picked a few and made the most of the reflection!

  • Thank you Barb, I took over 50 shots in about 5 min, zoom in zoom out zoom in and out { :>) Many of them were rejects with only 7 keepers.

    Well Done Byron…The spacing is oddly comforting…!

  • Odd that you should say that – I noticed that some of them stood close but none of the were right next to another bird, some of these look closer that they actually were because of the water refraction and distortion.

    Very beautiful, no wonder you got excited.

  • Thanks, it was a really impressive site. I wish there was a way to show a close up of the entire flock but the space is just to large – nearly a quarter of a mile long.
