it is what it is the urge to shoot some wildlife.. stalked a snaky-necked bird (must be a cormorant or something like that) under the bridge in windy 45+F temps, but it got spooked (thumbnail), ended up with this one..

  9. Oh man, I love this image. Excellent in every respect, great tunnel view and water effect. Looks like that may be a blue heron, they are such lovely creatures in flight, great shot.
