That's quite a bag of birds you got there. The second Coot looks like he better watch out for that hole in the water and the juvenile GB Heron made me laugh, with his awkward height! Great photos Brian!

Love seeing all of the waterfowl. Great captures, Brian, as usual! :)

Linda said...

Mixed bag of birds, indeed! Love the shots - but that one of the heron in flight is spectacular!

Great set of quality shots, the blue sky is fantastic in the Gull shot.

Deanna said...

That is definitely a mixed bag o' birds. Wonderful pictures. Now that we have a pond, we also have the Blue Herons... and are hoping they aren't too greedy and leave some of the young fish we stocked the pond with for us to catch in another year or so.

Brian another set of stunning shots, the birds are so beautiful and the shots are crystal clear... what's the secret to taking such amazing photos? One part lens, and 99 parts patience? :-)

Have a wonderful day, cheers.

These are all great! I kind of like the one where the goose is drinking water!

mick said...

All great photos but the heron with the fish is very special.

Springman said...

All the usual suspects! Im starting to see the herons and egerts around, no close encounters yet. Nice to see your GBH money shot(fish in beak)... Awesome takes Brian!

Beautiful shots, I think my favorite is the Heron in flight.
