A Little Blue Heron and a Snowy Egret. As you can imagine, both of these shots required a lot of processing...

A Tri Colored Heron and a Great Egret. Not a great image, but having the two of these together was to much to resist...:lol:

The first shot is quite nice dave. I like the reflections in the water and also like
the light reflecting off the ripples in the water onto the birds. The flight shots are
better than anything I can get (unless it's huge and has engines, LOL).
And the last shot, well as Scotty would say, "I can't fight the laws of physics captain!" (referring to DOF)

Thanks!

As for the laws of physics....:lol:

The tri-color turns out to be easier to photograph with an Egret than I had anticipated. They look dark, but are actually quite light as far as the camera is concerned.

The other two pictures are actually the result of loading the image twice, each time optimising it for the Egret and then the Little Blue, and then conbining them. But the image of the Tri and the Great White needed no such fancy footwork, which surprised me and continues to surprise me. The tr color, is actually far lighter than they appear..
