  2. He (or she) looks like he/she is meditating. You even caught the light reflecting in the bird’s eye. Marvellous photo. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I do like this reflection shot. Your rainbow shot is outstanding and deserving of an honored place on your wall.

  5. This is just fantastic. Where were you to get a shallow place to take this photo. I go to Western Springs a lot.

  6. Thanks for your comments, Ann. This was taken from the bridge (more or less where the marker is on the map, facing towards the short arm of the lake). There are one or two rocks which are submerged and some of the birds use them for resting/preening.
