My flickr contact Nicolas Cazard posted this great image of his daughter (I think) and a seagull on the southern coast of Spain. Taken with his Fuji X-T1. Incredible timing, beautifully framed.
My flickr contact Bill Eaton took this amazing image of a ring necked duck in the Viera Wetlands near Melbourne, Florida.
Our pond is frozen today but has had some mallards on it already this winter/spring and more ducks will come no doubt, including a pair of very colorful wood ducks.
My flickr contact Bill Eaton posted another incredible image of a roseate spoonbill taken in Florda with his Canon 7D.
The bokeh in the foliage behind the bird is stunning as well and contrasts nicely with the amazing color and shape or the bird.
My flickr contact Bill Eaton caught this egret in the perfect flight pose with his Canon 7D II. Wow.
Flickr member Laurence Cartwright caught a curious gull as he was trying to photograph a pier with his Sony RX100.

My flickr contact Bill Eaton caught this incredible image of a roseate spoonbill flying in the Stick Marsh, Fellsmere, Florida. Looks prehistoric. Amazing.
My flickr contact Bill Eaton posted a magnificent image of a small green heron with lunch speared on its beak.
Japanese Garden, Van Nuys, California.
It was a big bird day at the Japanese Garden: Canadian geese, Egyptian geese, various kinds of ducks, cormorants, and a number of snowy egrets.
As we were leaving I was able to take a number of shots of this snowy egret as he/she was fishing.
I enjoyed using the Canon G7X quite a bit: the tilting LCD made this shot easy, the longer zoom range (than the Sony RX100) allowed me to get closer to the bird, and the front control wheel’s clicks made zooming faster and easier than with the Sony. The white bird was a bit blown out but I’m not sure the Sony’s similar sensor wouldn’t have done the same thing. The Canon is a much sturdier camera with better ergonomics and even if it’s not as popular, I like it better than the Sony, which I found tough to use both in winter with gloves and all the time because it’s so slow to respond.
