Default Saturday at the park

a couple from Juanita Bay this afternoon...

pied-billed grebe... they usually don't come in close enough to give me a decent shot, but today they were feeling generous...



just a song sparrow, but i liked the light and the pose...



loved the reflected light on this little lady ring-neck...

Nice work Rocky, love the sparrow. They are all excellent shots. You could flip the Ringed-neck and I don't think anyone would be the wiser. Very cool reflection.
Cheers,
Steve

I am delight to see these pictures. Photographer has done a very good job. The reflection captured is adding grace to all the pictures.

Rocky,

These pictures really rock especially #3, the refection of the Ringed Neck is like a mirror's image.

I have to agree, that reflection is perfect. All shots are fantastic.

thanks, Phil! sparrows get no love - they're too common for most folks to bother with, but when i see one in light like this, i can't pass it up!
