Debby, Janine, Joannie, Lisa and Jeff,
Thanks for all of the nice comments! I'm so glad this photo seems to be a hit. I was all excited when I got a photo of this snowy egret along with a spoonbill next to each other in the same bush. But when I downloaded the photo the spoonbill, which was lying down, just didn't seem to work in the photo so I cropped the photo and removed the part of the spoonbill that was still in the bottom right corner. I'm going to try to attach the original photo. I would appreciate feedback if anyone has an opinion about whether I could create an equally good or better photo with the spoonbill in it.
Thanks,
Cathy #3891715

Hi Cathy...Congrats on another Finalist award! This is a great photo, and your recognition is well deserved.

I haven't been all that active with photography lately, but with the spring weather (slowly) approaching here in the northeast, I will be coming out from my photographic hibernation soon.

Continued success! #4155939
