Lovely picture Ted, I do like it. I would have liked to see the full picture as well. Both pictures.

Ray, click on the link to my web site. The original is the leading image. Thanks for the reply.

Marvelous low angle shot of this Ibis, Shalu. You were able to capture those frequently hard to get iridescent colors this bird has.

Excellent Canada goose portrait shot, fotoi. His pose is nice and peaceful looking. Did you use any flash with this shot?

Lovely shot, Mike. The subtle colors in the background really show the egret off nicely, and the birds pose is cool.

Thank you Mike. No, I didn’t use a flash for this photo. In fact, I don’t use flash at all for bird photography.

I'haven't used flash much for birds in the past, but lately I've been using it for small birds in heavily shadowed trees. It sure helps for those birds that are not getting any direct sunlight. I asked about the goose, because it kinda looked like he might have received light dose of fill flash.

This beauty landed right in front of me. The original was full frame in the vertical. I thought I would try something different with the crop.
Please tell me what you think.

This low camera angle makes me feel like I'm right there with the Ibis's. Very nicely done shot, Shalu.

Very nicely photographed, Jack. The background is blurred just enough to really separate the dipper nicely...plus the bird is sharp with a neat pose.
