My turn to go first

Despite the cries of "me first, me first," mom is resolute. It's not time for dinner yet. Apparently she is taking this New Orleans, slow-cooked, Southern cuisine thing a little to far. These chick are just plain hungry. The rookery at Audubon Park presents a good opportunity to see the lives of some handsome birds and to learn that sibling rivalries are not a uniquely human thing. Bring a pair of binoculars for great views

That's quite a tangle of birds you've got there! Happy 4th!

Just plain perfect.

I think this is one of the best photographs I have seen today. It is very encouraging and your photography is spot on.

I really admire your selection of what to photograph and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

Great picture!
I'm so glad I found this son is in grad school there...and reading the newspaper can be depressing!
I like this better!

Tre cool, Steve! What a great catch. I agree with Wanda. . . I thought they looked like they were doing some modern dance!

They really are just like some brothers and sisters. Love the tangled franticness. (is that a word?)
