  5. The robin with back-lighting is just beautiful, and very Spring-like. We have a creeper that looks very much like yours – they have a way of quickly spiraling to the other side of the tree trunk when you aim your lens, right? You’re lucky that the Great egret is nearby – I miss them. We had them in New York City, but on the west coast they don’t come north as far as Seattle, except rarely. That’s a beautiful heron too, with the plumage.

    • Thanks Lynn! Herons are very common here, but it was the first time I got to photograph an Egret. The treecreepers are indeed really fast, I’ve never gotten a clear shot close up! But I’ll keep trying..

  6. That short toe tree creeper had to be difficult to photograph. That little bird is quick.

    • Yes, they’re a bit too fast! I still haven’t managed to get a really sharp image of one.
