Default Diagonals - Some birds

I shoot (or try to shoot) using the rule of thirds - Sometimes that corresponds...

Well, the thirds is a great rule, but not the only rule... The main thing is giving thought to composition... Nice birds, where did you find that second one?

Most of my wildlife shots are done within the boundries of New York City; most people are totally unaware of the enourmous areas of never developed land, which is actually "wilderness," which still looks exactely as it did 400 years ago; inhabited by my count, so far, with 416 different species of bird.

Excellent images, Dave. I wasn't aware there was so much "wilderness" left in that area.

You and everyone else. Most New Yorkers don't have a clue. Why should someone from Kentucky know?

But if you go onto Google Maps, look up "Jamaica Bay," and you can see what I'm talking about.

My bad/ The first bird is a Black Bellied Plover, the second is indeed a Green Heron. The Heron by the way, was using that branch as a "back scratcher," and was so pleased with himself that I managed to get pretty close to him.

Not sure about the diagonals but really like the way you captured the eyes in both shots.

The first, is right to left, with the bird being on the "diagonal."

The second is left to right, with the bird And the branch being on the diagonal. The challenge is to shoot using the "diagonal method," not to actually shoot diagonals. Although Carly managed to do both...
