If you live in an area where these immense birds are common this is not an unusual find, but for me this was an exciting photo capture. These birds have an enormous wingspan and this one looks like it is skiing as it is landing right in front of me. I think he is putting his best foot forward. What do you think?

I photographed two Belted Kingfishers fishing at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware. They are very entertaining to watch and listen to their rattling calls. As this female landed on a dead branch, I thought I heard her say “I Caught a fish this long”
These large Swallows fly VERY rapidly and feed in midair. This female caught a bug in flight as I watched. It looked like a tiny aerial acrobat.
I was walking along the Click Ponds at the Viera Wetlands and this Juvenile Black-Crowned Night Heron suddenly flew from the edge of the pond. What a Surprise Flight!
I was recently visiting family in Florida and photographed my first ever Barred Owl. These creatures are Large and unlike most other owls, have brown eyes. I saw this one landing in a tree with feet out in front of him (or her). They make surprisingly no noise when they fly.
