While out for a walk at the marsh about 5 minutes from my house, I managed a few keepers of these two species, hope you all enjoy. Constructive critique is always welcome.

Super fine shots Wayne. That 2nd rail and 2nd sparrow shot are my favorites. Although I love seeing the full body in the first too. Well done!

I also like the 2nd rail and 2nd sparrow best, but they're all very good. I'm amazed at all the great rail pictures that have been posted recently.

Hey Wayne, I love the eye in the second Rail shot! I also have a preference for the first Sparrow shot. All nice ones though!

very nice set Wayne, #2 is my favorite, the reflection in the eye is great, a real stunner!
