Excellent. The photos of these guys are hard to get right because they are such dark feathered birds.

Thanks Gregsiem, for the really nice compliment. Both dark and all white birds are tough for me to get right. I practice on crows and gulls all the time. :-)

Lester...those are all beautiful, captivating photos. That orange-yellow color of the water (both foreground and background) is so cool looking.

couple more taken recently with my 400mm f2.8 Mk2 addition . Normally would try and get as much DOF as possible however going narrow for me at the moment( normally with 100-400mm and extender at f8) makes for an interesting change....

Image 1 is a very skittish and shy Buff Banded Rail poking its head out of its hiding place.

Image 2 is a juvenile Bush Stone Curlew
