Default A very mixed bag

Got to my favorite marsh before dawn. With my f10 Swarovski, I have to shoot quite slow at dawn.

This molting Mallard, did his best to make this shot interesting.



Walking up the beach, facing the sun, I shot this Great White Egret...




Here's shot of one of the hard working beach pigions. These birds look far healthier then their bread stuffed city cousins.



Later on, I spooked a Yellow Crowned Night Heron. This was the first adult I've seen in the marsh this year, although some of the juveniles showed up earlier. The last shot is from over a hundred yards.

Nice shots with the scope. Good to see you posting again Amigo. ( put 2+2 together, the dogs name and your website)

Chato always spoils things. They told me you can't trust this breed.

I actually like the Mallard image a lot with the movement...

Thanks. I didn't think it would turn out. At 125 speed, and 800mm, no tripod, even the smallest twitch registers. The light however was perfect, the sun just clearing the horizon, lit him like a spotlight.
