Hi!!!

My first pic here.

It was taken at Parque Central sidewalk in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Well done Jose!

If I may offer a small critique, and it has nothing to do with the photo itself, you may want to consider scaling down the size of your watermark. I understand that you want to protect your photo, but at that current size it detracts away from the subject.

Well done with the photo though! Look forward to seeing more from you. :thumb

I agree with Tommy on the watermark. Maybe something a little less conspicuous.

Thanks for the comments!!!

I'll be correcting the size of the watermark in the next batch.

There's a Moorhen family. As you can see the parents use some plastic straws and some paper to build the nest.

i think the straws are from their drinks they got with what ever cheese burger was wrapped in the paper...lol

another great find... do these birds just make nests right out in the open? or do you do a bit of climbing in the trees to get these shots? good job!

Well...

We has this walkway, sidewalk, whatever the name, that runs paralel to the canal. It's about 10' above the water.

Mmmmm...

Maybe a picture is better. :D
