really nice shots!!!! in the 2nd pic i would rather see more to the left of the bird and less to the right. that's just my opinion. i'm hoping i'll get some nice shots like these pretty soon.

Thanks =)

Yeah I tried centering the Purple Gallinule but they walk on those lilly pads so quickly - I was a bit slow =)

Nice ones, the GBH at my local park doesn't let me come anywhere near him.

Nice ones mgrogan. My first choice is the Heron followed by the Gallinule. The last one is a tad blown out but its still a very pretty bird.

Cheers

bobby:

thanks - usually the herons are rather timid but this one let me get as close as I wanted (I was about 2 feet away)

houston:

thanks for the critique...when you say 'blown out' does that mean overexposed? oversaturated? Is this somethingI can fixwith post processing? I'm very new at this and trying to learn how to take some decent pictures so I could use all the help I can get =)
