    • Thank you always, for your warm words.
      I fear for our wetlands, as they continue to disappear at an alarming rate. We each as individuals continue to do our best, but we also need the understanding and cooperation of governments and those who hold power… I will continue to keep hope.

    • Thank you Tanja.
      It was twilight when the photo was taken, and as you say, perfect lighting was provided by nature. I thought the 2 particular birds were especially charming too 🙂

    • Hello Mr. Ray,
      Very happy to see a comment from you.
      I’ve been trying to keep regular “records” of my favorite wetlands. As you can imagine, they wet/marshlands have disappeared at a rapid rate post WWII.

      Fortunately, this particular place is part of a nature reserve with a very active support group. They keep their own professional/official records, but “normal folk” often contribute too.

      • It’s probably happening faster and faster as it is along the Louisiana Coast. We lose a football field of wetland and soil every hour. That’s a 60×100 yard oblong piece of land. If everybody and their brother wasn’t done here photographing it, I’d do it.

        • “If everyone and their brother…” – I couldn’t help but laugh. I agree, everyone and even their pet is a photographer nowadays…

          To return to topic, I am sorry it’s happening to the Louisiana coast at such an alarming rate.

          • One of the dogs takes pictures when I hang a Go Pro on her neck. We see things from here level.

            I won’t see it, but in about 50 years, New Orleans will mostly be under water.

    • Thank you Carol.
      You’re right, wetlands are so important and continue to disappear at an alarming rate. I try to keep hope that humanity will learn, and sincerely hope my photos will be a catalyst for more people to realize the importance of the environment around us…
