I'm so excited! This is just barely hanging on to a 7, with less than 12 hours to go. I assume it will take the last voter drop, but I'm so glad people are enjoying it.

This is taken at the rookery in Richmond, about an hour away from my house. I was actually hoping that the shad were running and I'd get some good fishing shots. But no one was fishing, but there was still action up in the trees.

Unfortunately, most of the nests are now obscured by leaves. But I got this guy when he flew into one of the nest at the top of one of the trees.

Here's the shot before:

And here's the kissing shot after the conversation:

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!!
