A wonderful series!
I like all your shots but that first 'lunch catch' is my favorite - a wonderful capture!

My favorites are the white egrets, which luckily we find in most water ways in the East Bay. They are unruffled standing in water by the freeway as thousands of cars go zooming by. Now, that's adaptability.

A great series of photos. I especially like the ones where the bird has some prey in its beak.

Beautiful shots of what looks like a juvenile Great Blue Heron Jo. I really like the second shot with the crab.
