Those Birds!

Looking deep in my archives for bird photos - while waiting impatiently patiently for my new 150-500mm lens to arrive - because I don't have anything new and exciting to show - yet!  So...a year or so ago, we were in St. Augustine, FL, at the Alligator Farm.  As ugly as they are, I have always been fascinated by alligators and crocodiles.  What I didn't expect to see was the birds!

Amazing bird photos!

We have two species of spoonbill in Australia - but seeing one that is basically pink must be a real blast!

I've been saving for a long lens - and now (two years later!) I have the money I'm not sure I can spent it! Crazy!

PS: I was only not really that happy with the image of the bright red male parrot - I'd be very hard to please if I did not like the others!

Great bird captures, Linda.

Congrats on your new lens purchase -- it's the same one I want, but I haven't convinced the hubby yet! :)

Your going to love that new lens, but it's very heavy. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

i recently saw several roseate spoonbills at a zoo, they are very cool!!

Great photos of the birds. I have a long lens and have to use a monopod if I am going to hold it for any length of time.

Great birds, Linda! I love the YC Night Heron and the Spoonbill are cool looking birds. Great sightings.

Nice photos, Linda! Herons are one of my favorites, anyway. Sadly, we don't have spoonbills. I've never seen one except in photos.

Wow! I have got to get my act together. I just commented to Gary that my bird shots were very sickly by comparison to his, because I was to lazy to dig out my long lens and tripod.

Now I read that you are getting a new lens. Your shots also make me embarrassed to post mine.

Yep, I have to get my act together or quit taking shots of birds.
