    Not many shorebirds here yet, but they will be coming shortly. Photo was taken last Fall on Prince Edward Island.

    The GRYL was a young one, probably born in the spring.

    Thank you Kim!

    Those legs are awesome. Could you imagine that bird in a beauty contest? :)

  5. My birdie photos look like cartoon characters compared to your beautys…
    Oh well…someday i may break down and get a big camera. But I am waiting for the good cameras to get very small. I wonder how long i will have to wait.

    Dawn, thanks!

    You are too hard on yourself, your photos look nothing like cartoon characters! I love looking at your photos!

    The Canon Rebel XTI is not all that big. And my 40D I don’t consider huge. It’s just the lens that makes the whole thing seem big. Maybe someday shorter lenses will do the same as the long lens of today.
