As birds go the heron family make for great stalkers. Here a great blue heron is searching for fish along the shoreline.

Like other birds, geese are very protective of their young. Quite a sight when you see a family out for a swim.

Turtles are often seen climbing on top of one another, maybe there is a hierarchy and the top turtle gets the roost.

The light was what caught my eye not the young ones behind her. She seems to be smiling and proud.

While Cormorants tend to fly in straight lines down the river, their speed is incredible, which means getting any shots is difficult.

Ducks tend to fly in a straight line, or turn slowly like jets.  Predicting their flight is easier than some other birds.
