Hi Houston - Great shots as always, I love the Osprey hovering, I also like the Mallard shot, the composition is fanatastic. We have to be carefull not to pass over the "common" species just because they are common. I read once in a wildlife publication that it is better to present a GOOD shot of a common species, than to give a "reasonable"shot of a more rare animal/bird. The Mr and Mrs Mallard is such an example. :|

very nice. What equipment, lens size did you use?
Thanks, I use a Canon 20D, Canon 100-400L IS lens, Tamron 1.4x TC and sometimes I have it all on a Bogen Tripod but for these I was hand holding for all of them.

Talking about presenting a good shot of a more common species, your wildlife publication brings to mind a local contest I entered a while back. My shot of aplain ole female house finch took first place and I took it sitting on my back porch.
