Zig, your shots are very nice and it's good to see you get recognition. You don't start out with great shots, it takes time, patience, and persistence, with a healthy dose of learning curve.

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your support, words of encouragement, and kind comments.

So far, it's been a good year for me as I've had the distinct pleasure of working hard to improve my photography. Your acknowledgement, is very important to me as I feel that there are some outstanding and talented photographers on this site.

Getting acknowledgement from you folks is very gratifying
Zig

Hi Zig...

Outstanding photo, no doubt. I love the low perspective. Were you laying on the beach or something? Whatever, it worked.

One thing, though. I assume there is another bird behind this one, or else you should name him tripod.

Thanks Greg,

Actually, to get the perspective I was after, I spent most of my time photographing these birds on my knees with the E-30 mounted to a monopod.

I have to thank Ted K. for his recommending the Velbon Neopod 7 monopod. I love using this tool. It's made out of carbon fibre, is light as a feather, and withstands the elements.

Oh, and as for the what's in back of the bird, the Egret has a series of long slender tail feathers that, when wet, look like a 3rd leg.
