    Seems ever year we get 2 little baby Sandhills born down by the local lake. Found the nest along the shore but it's to far back to get a close shot.
    Here they were all out for a stroll. Guessing they are about a 12 days old at the most. They grow so fast!

    Sa-weet!!!! Both the subject matter, and the actual shots. Love how you got it eating a worm (with momma right there watching). And when they stand 'tall' like that, their widdle wings look so teeny.

    Look forward to seeing more of these youngsters.

    Fantastic. I only get to see these guys during migration, so I never get to experience this opportunity.

    I absolutely love #4 with that pose. I know bokeh is a dead horse, but it is kinda awkward in that shot.

    Otherwise, great series.... :thumbup:
