Default Goofing off

Out golfing again or should I say goofing off, Saw my first (this year) Glossy Ibis. It was skittish and wouldn’t let me get close so these are major crops of my 300mm

Then a Sand Hill Crane and it did let me get closer

This Great Blue Heron was getting annoyed with me following him around so it just got into deeper water further from the pond bank then flew into a sand trap just like many of my balls when I do hit them.

Wonderful shots! Love the first great blue heron, it does not look pleased. And I love your comment about where your balls have a tendency to land (where mine would land if I were ever to take up golf, I'm sure!).
