Terrific captures.
How do you get these creatures to pose for you ? :lol:

That neck shot is just too much !!
These birds, along with cormorants, don't have water repellent feathers and spend a lot of time sitting in that cool wings opened pose drying out. And in populated Florida they are quite used to people, which makes them just about one of the easiest birds to take pictures of there is.

Another easy one is the White Ibises. I posted one picture of one acting natural with the frog in my Birds With Prey post. The picture below is an 8mm shot of some Moorhens and a bunch of White Ibises after I threw part of a cracker out there somewhere.

Nice captures Steve, if I picked it would be no. 3 & 4. You see more different critters in a week then I do in six months.
