    We were there on Sunday probably in the same spot, lol! Tried to photograph the same bird too but too many people around scaring them away. Great shot Larry. Did you go in the morning?

  • Good Morning Teresa
    This was taken early last Wednesday morning, just before I led a kids program, as I always stroll through this area first with camera in hand…I appreciate your interest, and comments BTW…Thanks
