Having a really hard time finding much of anything to photograph in my local spots. Found a few Egrets that haven't migrated yet (but I think they headed South after this shot) and a photogenic Cardinal. Thanks for looking and comments welcome..

Interesting shot of the egret - sort of mid-flight. I like the cardinal. You could just here him saying - "You looking at me?"

Beautiful! Particularly like the posture of the egret.

Those look great to me.
You are going to have to start hiding in the bushes at a park, and taking photos of people. Just do the same thing you do with birds, it will work out great!:biglaugh:

I feel your pain. Being almost 70* here in Georgia during December has had a strange effect on the local wildlife.

Nice Cardinal shot!

Both are nice shots but for me the Egret in flight takes the cake. Beautiful timing. Loved it.

Thanks for all the kind words!

If I could only catch people jumping out of trees and grabbing mice with there teeth I would be all over that, especially if they were tarred and feathered!

Oh bill :( I know, but I can either stick with Canon and my 500 F4 (which I love more than...) or go back to Nikon and get a slow consumer zoom and then I would loose 2 stops and the whole advantage of the D500. Chasing my tail in circles :)
