    Sweet shot! I hadn’t seen this. One you took late last week on 40°c?! neautiful — that should read beautiful, but I think it’s a good new word. Well done on the merit award, and creative title, Nadine.

  • thanks so much, fading red! I took it a few seconds before Wot? There’s Plenty of Room some time last year

    Wow, so amazing! I love how you are able to isolate the subject and your white bokeh!

  • thanks so much, joanne – I just shot it against a grey dawn sky. It helps that the birds like to perch on those dead tree branches.

  • thanks adrian — they are special – and easier to photograph than those flighty wrens!

    I love your title, Nadine, it suits this bird’s pose and expression perfectly.. Lovely capture.

  • thanks, jan – there was a raven encroaching on the spoonbill’s space – so no doubt what it was saying!

    Oh beautiful!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this bird, it’s amazing! Super capture Nadine, beautifully timed and composed :))

  • thanks lou – this is why I love the telephoto lens – I’ve seen so many more birds by just sitting quietly and waiting by the side of swamps or lakes.
