Wow William those shots are simply amazing and quite touching.
Thanks for the comment - as for pp nothing much to it really, birds are white so nothing much except take the background as unbright as it will go and then a thick black brush to obliterate the unwanted parts. Pretty random actually.
Those pics were taken over 2 sessions earlier last month, but there were so so many keepers just did not have the time to do much with them. The land birds I have already posted here over the last couple of pages, next was this "ballet", upcoming will be the water birds bits when they are done.
df and Dave, beautiful shots all.
