Great Egret

Mike that really is very nice.
Love the composition.
The bird detailed against the reeds really shows the Egret off very nicely.

Very nice.
The colours and composition with that beady eye really makes a pleasing scene.

Thanks Mike and Richard. Your comments are very much appreciated.
Tom

Richard...this is really a marvelous shot. It's beautifully done, and the sharpness is great. Very nice work.

I love your shots of these guys. They've got to be a joy to have around.

Terrific portrait shot of this western kingbird, Bill. On my walk this morning, I saw several of them, and I plan to go back this evening with my camera and see if they wanna pose for me. :-)

Cool, sharp shots, Paul. This one sure is throwing water in every direction. You captured the action very nicely.

My goodness, what a beautiful warbler, Dave. Terrific capture.

Fabulous shot, Tom. The composition here is excellent.

I love this shot, Bob. The birds pose is really nice. Great work.

Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow. I hurts to look at this shot. :lol: :p Nice one, Mike.

Thanks LD.

These are all really nice captures of the two youngsters, Bill. They are almost ready for their new lives in the big world.
