Aye, not much time between catch and gulp! :) Its all thanks to the 8fps of the 7D...you can capture a lot of microaction with that many frames.

Great Shot! Are the Cherry Creek Wetlands in CO?

Thanks! :) The wetlands are in Cherry Creek Park, just south of Cherry Creek Reservoir. One of the few areas of wetlands left in Colorado, and barely a shadow of what Colorado used to be (this state used to be a significant and valuable wetlands area before it was settled). There is quite a bit of life in the areas south of the reservoir though, and LOTS of birds!

Oh! I used to go there all the time when I lived in Colorado 0u0 It's so pretty there! Great place to take pictures too. :)

They have recently rebuilt that small wetland pond just south of the lake. Its much larger now, and hopefully over the next couple years it will fill in and draw even more wildlife.
