Those are all beautiful photos but the purple swamp hen is an education to me, too. Had never before heard of it. Very nice how the birds and backgrounds complement one another.

You're making that lens "sing" Julie! Beautiful shots. I particularly like the Silver Eye balancing the fruit on it's head. Neat shot....cheers........Don
