Great shots Brian- he looks so funny sitting up in that tree. That last shot is fantastic!

Hi there - this may sound crazy, but I like the lack of bird in this bird shot! We dont always have to have the screen filled for it to be a great shot.

The goldfinch in the earlier post is great.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne

These are wonderful...very neat when we can view the GBH up high...it makes them seem much smaller and then...they fly~

He wasn't high enough to elude you of that perfect shot.

The heron in flight is the icing on the cake. But they are all beautiful.

I don't remember the last time I saw a heron sitting in a tree. Maybe I don't look up enough. Great job on that last pic!!

Wonderful pictures of gbh perching, and that last shot in fight is perfection.

Nice perspective of just how high up he was, and awesome flight shot.

As my kids would say "Look there is a dinosaur in the tree!"

Amazing heron shots! I saw one near a pond, I tried to get a photo, but it flew to the other side of the pond, and into the trees. I guess I'm too slow.
