"Here Comes Mom"

Well done - I'm always amazed that those high branches can hold the weight of several big birds like this! And BTW, in a pinch, look for flowers in home stores like Home Depot and Lowe's - the ones around here always have been good about letting me take photos. #1498501

Wow, what an amazing "family" catch. Terrific timing, and display of "village" work.
Your hand must be so steady. Fantastic capture. #10419900

Wow. This is fantastic! We can even see her landing gear! I bet she swooped in to give them all big hugs??

Amazing timing Rona. It's really a superb capture.

Great to be in your gallery tonight!

Another one of my Wood Stork family from the Jacksonville Zoo Rookery. You can see that it really does "take a village"!
