LIght in Flight - Florida Birds Part II


As promised, here are more birds from Florida. Unfortunately the frames I place around the images in my blog posts seem to crop the photos, some images it doesn't matter much but others, the crop clips the wings or feet of the birds. Like the first one here, the top ducks wing is clip by th crop but is not in the original...oh well.

I am not totally sure, but I think these are black bellied whistling ducks.

Well, for apparently being a down year for the birds, I am happy with what I seen I photographed. It is a big concern though that all the bird numbers seem to be way down. I may return to florida once more this year - at the end of April, there are nesting Ospreys I would love to photograph when the click start to leave the nest.

Enjoy, Shane
