The far shore, visible, is the Rockaways, and actually two miles away - the telescoping effect of an 800mm lens. The Swans themselves are about two hundred yards off.

A Brants Goose, a better image than my last version.

These are really well done. I like the first and last because of he play of the light.

That last one is really a really nice shot, but the light in the first one is really great, I can't pick a favorite.

The third one has really nice detail on a tough bird against the sky, nice job.

In the last one, I can see the water/mud dropping from the egret's feet. Nice light.

:lol: I have to figure out a way to upload a 30 Meg file with my 56K modem...

I have one recent pic, where the water drops cause shadows on a Snowy...

This is Brooklyn.

This guy just got out of drug rehab, dumped off in the marsh, without even pocket change. The reason he looks awkward is that he saw me waving a $20, and hopped out of the marsh so fast that he lost his composure. Just a glance at his eyes shows that he's not making this effort for fish...
