Beautiful captures Betty! All these birds look so elegant, and in your second capture...cute! The first one somehow reminded me of Holland - overpopulated:):)
Thanks for the encouraging comment about spring - it's just that I live in California where it's supposed to be a subtropical climate, lol!Have a great week!

That's quite a variety of birds! I especially like the third one down, the close-up with the green water behind the dark bird. So lovely.
