I saw this bird standing in the water with nice light casting down on it. Even though the water background is a little busy and there are a lot of distractions, there is something I really like about this shot. I think it's just the colors: greens, dark blues and greys melding together. I could have shot this with a 200mm at 2.8 to help blur the background but I wanted to see the reflections of the palm trees.
Pretty sure this is an Osprey perched atop a T.V. antenna. Again, I always say this: I love it when I have big dark clouds in the background with the light of the sun illuminating the subject. It just makes the best photos.
