Congratulations, everyone! I especially like Havalotta's Artistic one.

Thank you, thank you.
A rare shot. Seldom do I get a shot that seems to pull you in.
Equill whatever happen to the killdeer eggs? Did you ever find a home for them before they hatched?

Twas not a creation, but found natural!
Upon the river stood two twists of grass. Below, the reflection of the blue blue sky upon it.

I don't think so. When I enlarged a portion of one of photos taken of this rookery, I could see that the birds had very long legs and beaks. Unfortunately, I couldn't see any other details...

All very nice - I also liked the 'Artistic' one!

I did not mean you created "it", but rather that you saw the beauty in what others would maybe just pass by and instead looked, captured and preserved the image of the beautiful lines the grass made itself. That takes "the Eye.".
