I haven't been able to get out and find much lately. Eleven and twelve hr work days plus home chores hasn't left me with much free time. But I do have these three shots to post and maybe get a little help with the ID on one of them. Its not a very good shot because I got all shook up and fumbled when it flew up out of the weeds and grass where I was parked looking for a G. Egret that I've seen there before.

All taken with the DRebel, 100-400L with 1.4x tc.

1. GBH - ISO 400, 1/1250, F5.6 at 560mm. Cropped just a tad, resized, FM, NR and Exp comp of -0.3 step.

2. Male Cardinal sitting on a chain link fence. I don't know why the curve came to be. Can anyone answer this.

ISO 400, 1/50, F5.6 at 560mm. Cropped some, resized lev, FM and NR.

#3. I thought this one was some kind of Ibis but I can't find one in my book that looks like this one. Maybe I'll get myself together and get a better one next time, that is if he visits that spot again. Its at the same place where I got the Great Egret in the top of a pine tree that started the "Landscaped Wildlife" fad.

ISO 400, 1/1250, F5.6 at 560mm. Resized, FM, Exp comp of -0.3 step. Looks like maybe I should have had the exp comp a little more minus.

Very nice shots, Houston, especially the first one. I like the background in this one and think it adds to the photograph. As for the curve in the Cardinal photo, that's a strange one and I look forward to someone answering it. Looks like something one would get with a 4mm :G

PS - the bill definitely looks like Ibis to me

I'm no expert, but it looks to be a Wood Stork. You did an admirable job catching it coming out of the reeds too. Very nice. Woody

Very nice shots indeed but I'd be careful if I were you, That stork might be bringing a bundle of joy :-)
Once again nice shots

woodysworld, cerambyx and wagaboo - Thanks for looking in and I really appreciate it. I thought about the wood stork also but something about the picture in my book just doesn't look right for it. Maybe I'll get a better shot at it on another day. It want be today though as it has been raining all day.
