Had to post SOMETHING! Miss you guys!! BUSY with life and its been raining every day off, so posting one taken earlier this year. Nestled in the moss and thankful I was a canal away!

In the workshop I will post one of the screen shots of my FAVORITE thing to do now; WATCH THE NESTING HERONS! Have seen the pipping and birth of 4 chicks and they all look like Rod Stewart to me!! If you can, check out my FORUM General note about this live cam nest and join in on the fun. It's free and so educational!
take care!

Hello Brenda,
What I really like about this particular shot is it shows the mother gator in her natural habitat with her two tiny babies close to her side. Great focus and beautiful natural coloration. Well done!!

Hi Brenda.
What a breathtaking scene. I hope you have used very long telelens :). A bit dark colour tones underline the danger of the situation. WS are also touching but from other side. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Brenda,
