Nice captures. It's like he was posing for you, so quiet in the grass.

These guys have all but disappeared from around here, but I saw one running alongside the road last year. I hope they are back. Beautiful shots, as always.

Amazing shots. Especially amazing that she stayed there long enough for you to shoot them.

Nice shots, as usual. He looks quite content.

I think he has earned that "Mr" in front of his name. He has a large presence.

Stunning pictures, Brian. I had one of these woddle across my deck when we first moved to the lake and haven't seen one since ... They are beautiful and they really do say "Bog White!".

Such a beautiful little bird with a distinctive call. I haven't seen or heard one for a long time.

Lovely lighting showing the detail and the wonderful colouration. And of course a very smart species.

Extraordinary macro detail of the feather patterns and colours. And the little face is so appealing in the last photo.
