All are gorgeous, especially 6 which is crisp, sharp and clean. I saw the kingfisher sometimes they it is difficult to be shot. In 6, the eye is full of life.

Outstanding selection, especially the last three - the angry Kingfisher is awesome!

Did the heron ever get that fish down? I once watched a loon unsuccessfully trying to swallow a flounder way too wide for it for 45 minutes before I had to leave.
