Ding Darling NWF in Sanibel FL. taken with 100-400IS. Cropped to remove some distracting elements. C&C appreciated You don't have to be gentle. I can't get better if you don't pick me apart. BTW I love POTN and all the good helpful folks that are here.

Not a lot to pick apart Terry, you handled the exposure well and I like the reflection. A lower angle might have been nice but I realize that's not always possible. I like the fuzzy headed young WS, they make nice subjects.

I'm headed down to Merritt and Viera in March, I hope I see a few of these then. They're here in good numbers in the warm months.

Terry I like the eye contact and the feeding pose. What light was this taken under?

Thanks for the comments guys.
Stephen- It was about 8AM. I the sun was still pretty low, hence the goledn light.. That might account for the "odd" watercolor, hTr. I'm not sure. It was shot RAW then cropped. Nothing else was done, PP wise.

Hmm. The turquoise water is a little strange. You might want to try some color correction to get it close to what you remember - or maybe that's it! I am often accused (at least in my house) of being color-challenged!

Thanks, Dale....My wife tends to make fun of how I match my clothes, so I am in the same boat as you! I believe the water was pretty close to what i remember. i will play around with the RAW file a bit and see what happens.

hTr.......Good eye. I just went back and saw that in RAW the white balance was set to shade. Water looks much better. i must have been in a hurry when processing. I did have some wood storks in the shade.
