Terrific shots Ed. I like the third best but they are all lovely shots. You managed to freeze some fine action.

Those are very nice, I like 3 and 4 the best for the detail in the white feathers.

Excellent shots, better than I've ever managed of a great egret. The K7 and DA*300 seems to be an awesome combination, and you seem to be able to keep the quality up with the TC, too.

Fantastic shots Ed. The first one is my favirite. I love the S-curve in the egret's neck, and the water droplets dribbling from the bill really make the shot

Great shots , I like No.1 the white against the blue is lovely and No.3 has beautiful symmetry.

Again some amazing shots from an amazing photographer. Hard to choose a favorite - they are all so well-composed and well-exposed. But I do love the water spalsh/drops in the first, and the flow of the third.
