More Killdeer Babies



Just pure cuteness for todays post.







Growing into those long legs must be a clumsy ordeal.







Even though those legs are long, the babies seem to handle them just fine. They can sure run when they want to.







The fluffy lil cotton balls are a favorite find for me every year.

Those babies look like they are up on stilts. They are just so darn cute running around. Nice shots!

Great shots. They are all great but the first one you got a very nice glint in the eye which is one of the things that I look for when I am photographing wildlife. Sometimes it's tough, most wildlife wont stand and pose in just the perfect light, but you got an excellent shot. It does not hurt that the chick is extremely cute.

Oh that just about stopped my heart - seeing that first darling baby! You got so many cute pictures - I love them all! By the way - did I tell you I really like your banner - it looks just like August and the beginning of migration is not far behind!
Thanks for your input about my lens and the focusing issues :-)

We have two little ones scurrying about on a lawn here on the UNC Greensboro campus, early in the morning. Quite adorable
