The detail and pose in the first really stand out.

Great shots norm! The detail in the cowbird is incredible!!! The sparrow and the warbler
must have liked you! Lately, these guys have been jumping out of one bush and diving
into another for me, never exposing themselves in the open.

As usual, absolutely STUNNING :!::!::!::!::!:

But I ask you, I've been paying this Black Capped Night Heron $20 an hour to pose, and yet I don't get as good results. Am I being over charged? What is the going rate?

Thanks all for your really wonderful comments. Julie, glad you like that little guy as I think it is an extremely pretty little bird as well, and it's even prettier in real life. Dave, these are all stuffed so I just place them where I want and I can use a very small shutter on tripod with remote release. Thewater dripping from the swan is crazy glue:G

norm, what can i say??!!! great shots!!! #1 would be a wall hanging for me!! really sharp, perfect exposure and truly artistic!!!! the 4th (swan) has amazing white on white detail, which we all know can be tough to obtain!!!! #5 has fantastic fine feather detail. can you do a photography brain dump for us so we can be as good as you??:angry: again, superb pictures!!!!

Thanks dennis, I sincerely appreciate the compliments. The swans in this location are next to tame so it's quite easy to get close to them, even though they remain wild and fly in from somewhere; they have learned to adapt to people quite well and one can do anything but pet them. I love their trumpet sound too, and heard a nice symphony the day I took these shots.:G
