A fine close up of this great looking bird. His legs do look "stick-like." I like the squiggles in the water too.

LauraS from Chico, United States

Stunning shot, Becky! Reminds me of our get together in Woodley Park.

@LauraS: It was Woodley Park. At the time - I didn't think it was post worthy for some reason. Recently though I've been more enthralled with the birds - especially after watching the Osprey's grow and fledge. The truth is, my backyard is teeming with wildlife - and I sit back here all day long and edit - Going to do a backyard natures series. : ) Oh and I have to get the pic of you and your sis to you - and post that at some point as well.

Julie L. Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

I like the spring-loaded look to this bird.
