  1. Once again, these are positively iconic. I love the attention to composition.
    Some off-the-wall observations, which may be because I am sleep-deprived:
    The eyes of the Cinnamon Teal are positively murderous, which is a strange thing to say about a duck.
    I think the specific name of the Savannah sparrow is kind of funny: sandwichensis? Was somebody hungry when they named it?

    1. Thanks for the encouraging words. Everyone: Feel free to “like” my separate photography page on Facebook, linked at the top of this page.
