    I'm using a really cheap tamron tele lens. Too poor to afford the Canon tele L glass...So I just had to work with this slow lens xD and thanks for the suggestion and comment

    Still sorting images and processing a few at a time from the Bosque trip with Bob Williams. The first morning we arrived just before daylight at the crane pools to find many of the birds that had roosted in the shallow water were frozen in. There are train tracks just across the road and a train came through which created a very loud roar....many of the birds tried to fly but were stuck in the ice! As the sun came over the horizon it soon warmed enough to let them break free. On this shot, even though the BG is too busy, I decided to save it because it shows the ice around the birds legs

    On the contrary Joel the oof BG that is busy and the in focus bird makes the picture, IMO this is the best of the group so far. This captured the nature of it all. Well Done

    Great shots Bob and Joel, sounds like a great trip.
    The whole notion of a bird getting frozen and stuck in the water is incredulous to me, beautiful shots keep them coming.

    All the shots are really good, but the crane on the rocks is just cool.

    I just can't resist---The question is "Where's Waldo" (Joel). Hint: He is NOT the short one with pink snow boots.

    Nor, I guess, is he the person in the blue jacket with a camo-coated lens hood for a head... []

    if so, Bob you don't need to run if you encounter a mountain lion the next time you go with Joel!
