    this is fantastic Yan, I tried to get a shot at one today too, but before I got all ready he spotted me, and took of before I could get more than one and it’s no good. Glad they are back though, I will have to try harder. This is great seeing the nest like that. Great colors.

  • Thank you so much dear Vickie for the warm comments. Indeed, when they are in the water and we get close they fly away. But on top of the trees around their nests, they are less skiddish :)

    Good luck!
