The Skimmers were returning to feed their Juveniles.

Magnificent threesome.
Beautifully photographed.

European Bee-eater. Perhaps the bird with the most inappropriate name. I have never seen one eating a bee. They eat them if they cannot find anything else, but they avoid them since they have to remove the sting first

Awe inspiring photos of stunning birds.

Snowy egrets fighting

Very nice indeed. Beside the antics, the colours and composition are truly exceptional.

Very nicely photographed.
They are beautiful birds and this shows them off so well.

With me, I'm constantly shooting over lakes and ponds. Here's an example of what happens when I'm shooting in Av or Tv mode. At first I catch the bird against a blue sky (very bright), and my exposure will be correct. Then as the bird drops down, and the background changes, the camera will adjust it's exposure immediately due to the new (much darker) background of mountains, or trees, etc. This, change of exposure usually completely overexposes the bird. That won't happen in manual mode, because you have locked your exposure in on the bird, and the camera can't readjust. On occasion, the overall photo may look a little darker than you like, but the bird will be correctly exposed. It's easy in photoshop, to correct the background if it's slightly off a bit. I learned this a few years back when Art Morris (renowned bird photographer) gave a talk here in Fresno, where I live. I've never forgotten this when he explained it to the audience. That is when I changed to shooting in manual mode, the great majority of the time.

I will certainly remember that and give this a try next time I am out! I appreciate the thought and help

Jack...Those are incredibly nice shots. You said they were "difficult blighters to snap." That's an understatement Jack. I would have said "almost impossible to snap."
Great job.
