  1. WOW Jeff, I am really liking the birds images you have been posting as of late…………especially this one!! Perhaps I will run into you out at Brazos Bend.

    BTW, Happy New Year!!

    • Sheldon,

      Call me anytime. I’ve always got a few hours for a hike around Brazos Bend in the winter. Saw several Red-Shouldered Hawks and an American Bald Eagle a few weeks back.


    • Terry,

      Thanks and happy new year to you also. I’m enjoying your shots of the snow covered mountains from the comfort of my (warm) Sugar Land home office. 😉


  2. Nice image, Jeff. Love the bokeh and subtle colors. You picked a great one to start the year with.
