Default Birds in flight

Out on the golf course again this time concentrating on birds in flight shots, running out of time before going back up north. For some reason birds are much more skittish in Michigan. All shot with the K30 and DAL 55-300 same day mostly on the back 9. Couldn’t believe my luck this day, lots of species, Small Blue Herons, Tricolored Herons, Great Blue Herons, Ibis, Great Egrets, Cormorants, Anhingas, Osprey carrying what looks like a bluegill (major crop), and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. Hope I don’t bore you with too many shots. Posted in the sequence shot, comments please, It only cost me $25 for 18 holes with a cart with 3 spotters, I did miss a few golf shots, OK a lot of golf shots. I didn't hold up the other 3 guys I was golfing with.
