    The first image gives meaning to the term "water trap"!

    Nice shots, Sam.

    Must be a pretty cool golf course to have all this available!

    I swear, I don't know how you guys get such good Heron shots. I've never seen any self-respecting Heron that would let you get anywhere near that close!

    I may be wrong here, Sam, but I believe your Buzzards are Black Vultures rather than Turkey.

    Again, nice round of golf there!

    Being able to shoot at 300mm really helps in getting up-close-and-personal with herons.

    Great shots.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this wasn't taken on the Old Course at St Andrews!

    Or its one of the members of the Links Committee out making sure nobody is playing on a Sunday.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I found out that the wildlife on them are not as skittish as other places. I believe they are used to people being close.

    POPS is correct being able to shoot at MM is a good thing with birds.

    The alligator is liked more than some of the course marshals we know.
