Im just too much of an animal lover (all animals) love ducks and raptors, so seeing the eagle go after and hurt the duck - I found disturbing, your photo skills are great though.

I have tried for a while to capture egrets, but there is always something amiss, usually over exposed. This is a great shot, love the eye which seems to follow you however you look at it.

I have a 3 sets. of images of this eagle trying to catch this mallard. Over about 15 minutes eagle would circle around lake and try to get the mallard but was never successful except for talon full of feathers.

Awesome series. Nature in the raw. I guess a bird's got to eat. I'd be surprised if the Mallard lived

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

Most any pure white birds are hard to shoot and get them properly exposed. I shoot using spot metering and underexpose them a half stop or so. That works for me most of the time.

Pagman, got it and I have to agree with you, I esp.like ducks there are so many different kinds and their color schemes can be quite amazing. I was just lucky or unlucky getting these shots, nature is what it is the good and bad.

very nice, I have just started using spot metering and I am finding it is helping out a bit.

I got up before 6:00 AM and went looking for the barn owl that has been attracting a lot of attention from Bay Area bird photographers. Unfortunately, that did not happen for me today. More than one local birders told me that I was about 2 weeks too late. Disappointed, I decided to walk down a different trail on the other side of the creek. Glad I did. I found a kestrel and was able to get a decent sequence of flying.
