    these little guys are just so cute... i just wish they'd come closer! this one was about 25 yards away, which doesn't seem like much till you realize these birds aren't much larger than a fat, amphibious pigeon... 40D, 400mm, 1/1000 @ f/6.3

    I love how the bird both stands out and blends in with the background. Nice catch.
