This is not a good photo, as I didn't have a longer lens. But I found it interesting as the egret is seeming to walk across the backs (shells) of at least 32 turtles sunning themselves at the lake.

Canon 20D, 75-300 4.5-5.6 IS with 2X Phoenix teleconverter.

Walter it IS a good photo, maybe not sharp, but it goes with the thread started by DBB and Houston [unknown to him] about seeing wildlife in their "landscapes" and not just extreme close-ups

Thanks. It's just that I've been wanting a longer lens, but still undecided. I'm sure I'll opt for a zoom, but the Canon 100-400L, Sigma 80-400, or??

Walter, as Jake said, this IS a good photo. If you have been reading all the comments this past week about my photo of an Egret and DBB's very nice comments that started this Wildlife landscaping thing you'll know that your photo is a good one too. And besides, if you had used a longer lens you wouldn't have captured all those turtles.:-)

Cheers

Houston

Thanks for the nice comments. The setting is an urban park located next to Ameriquest Field (Texas Rangers baseball) in Arlington. A couple of egrets, several ducks, about 75 gulls and other species call it home...as well as the turtles.
