Young Robins 5-19-06 : This Robins next was located twenty feet from my front door, low in a Magnolia tree. All three baby Robins survived. I was very lucky to see the last youngin, to leave the nest, fly for the very first time. It was an incredible feeling!

Limpkins and chicks : The limpkin is a rather unique bird in as much as it is the only member of its family and has no close relatives among other birds. It is almost exclusively found in the USA in Florida. You can hear its call here  http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/audio/Limpkin.html
The limpkins call was recorded and used as one of the jumgle sounds in the 1930's Tarzan movies

HUMMINGBIRD NEST : With the help of a table and a tripod, I was able to get the camera up high enough to get these shots.  She would not come back to the nest until I went inside and then came back out.  Then there was all of the re-established focusing until I came up with these.  I shot the original RAW and they came out beautifully when printed.  The camera lens was only 4 inches from her. The leaves kept blocking the signal....as I said....patience and a little luck and VOILA!
