I'm totally delighted with all the chicks but just as much with the adult birds! The grebe at the lake we went to were still nesting. Babies will probably be out in a week (at the max.).

You morning photos are fantastic. Such a nice lighting in them. Not quite Africa but very beautiful nevertheless :yes:
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.
