    There is nothing I find more relaxing then going on a hike as far into the woods as possible where songs from the variety of birds and the smell of the forest sooths the worst of worries.

    Many of these are cropped heavily so details are lost but I only have 200mm to work with. I hope you all enjoy these shots and please C&C is always welcome.

    1. My first duck shot of spring.

    2. My little swamp full of friendly critters.

    3. This GBH is cropped heavily, any more cropping I think would kill it.

    5. Another shot of the Heron.

    WOW... I really like the Mr. Woody pic! I LOVE how his head is in the light and his body is not. And it's sharp!

    Thank you very much for the nice words. The early morning sun helped out with the colors for sure.

    Thanks Bill. Wood Peckers are one of many of my favorite birds. We have all kinds of species up here. I believe this one is a downy but I am not sure?

    Thanks Jay. I love Northern Ontario from the Muskokas up. Algonquin Park is another haven for the brooding Photographer. Cheers mate.

    Thank you kindly Nikon Lady. I have been shooting these reeds for a long time. I think people are getting tired of seeing Cattails. :)

    Cheers Rajvarma, I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Woody's are alway's fun to shoot. :)

    Thanks a bunch Skier. Glad you liked them. If the weather improved today I am going out to shoot that doe again and hopefully will get a better shot.

    Thanks again all for stopping by.
