Man, you have great fields to work in.
Just a fantastic series of shots. How do you pick a favorite? If I had to pick I guess I would have to go with the owl, love it.
Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic series. Love every one of them but especially the woodduck's leap of faith.

I'd say time well spent Mike. Great shots, all of them.

Mike,

What beautiful photos, the colours are superb, exposure spot on, compositions powerful and each bird is gorgeous!

Truly artistic and well executed. I expect a lot of patience was needed!

Some of the photos EXIFs remain, others are not there. It appears you are using a Nikon D300. What lens or lenses were these made with? Thanks for sharing.

Paul

I can only agree with the others, because they have pretty much said everything I would say. For telling a story, I have to pick the baby wood ducks leaving the nest cavity. I wonder if they realize once they jump, they're committed? No going back. A rite of passage. Mama's waiting below!
