    J.K. you would get shots like that here with patience and tenacity if you lived here because everyday I walk outside my door and Sandhill Cranes, Great Blue Herons,Ibis, and tons of Grackles are everywhere this part of Florida….. Wait till the winter gets here when the migration begins!

    This is just amazing! I’m one of those that although I spend a great deal of my life outdoors, I always get the picture of rings in the water right after the fish is done jumping.
