I guess you guys have noticed that I haven't been here very much lately. It has been a come for a quick look and then get busy with something. Remember when we were having the hurricane season down here in the southern USA. Well during all that rain I was driving home one day and my pickup hydroplaned, turned around backwards and went across the median into an oncoming car. Lucky no one was hurt, just my feelings. But my truck is still being repaired. Then last Saturday my grandaughter got married down in Tampa Florida so I went down there and took almost 200 pictures of the wedding. So every night my time has been just about taken up processing those pictures and I havent't even gotten started good yet. Well enough of that. Here's a few that I got on the way home from work Friday.

All taken with the 20D and100-400L

1. Little Blue Heron sunnin - Cropped and sharpened just a little with Focus Magic.

Nice shots! But the one of the Heron eating luch is a real winner, although truth to be told, it didn't make me hungry

Great shots of the little green heron. It always amazes me that these little guys are in the
same family as the great blues.

Lovely shots, Houston, and I hope your wedding shoot went well. I'm also pleased to hear that nothing serious happened in that accident.
