Beautiful shots, zoomn, it looks from the background that you are getting all of these birds in the same location, looks like a great place for shorebirds. You are getting some real nice photos with very nice background blur in these so make sure that you retain those settings for future work. The exposure on the Stilts is excellent and this is no easy subject to get good exposure on. On my monitor (LCD 19 inch) I would add a slight touch of contrast to the bottom one but not much at all. Again, excellent shooting and processing.

Hi Bobby and Normcar.

Yes I always use the tripod with the Bigma.

Normcar, yes there is a series of 3 farm ponds on a small 10 acre nature preserve that no one seems to know about but me. It just looks like fenced private farm ground. ONe of the ponds is the green water pond with greenery all around. The other pond is all rocks around it. Then there is a smaller pond with lots of cattails where have been getting the red wing and yellow head blackbird shots. I am very blessed to have this practically private area to photograph in.

Appreciate your comment on the contrast for the second photo. I will check it out.
