Thanks for the encouragement dear Jim, Mary and Yuki!!
I am in the early stages of experience as birdwatcher, I have to get used to change settings very quickly to sudden changes in basic subjects to photograph!

Nice shots. White birds are hard. I usually have my exposure compensation set for -2/3 or -1 and change from there, but usually take a shot or two first in case the bird flies off while I am futzing with settings.

even in tough conditions, its only a matter of time before you get the perfect shot alex. as steve said, white birds are the most difficult to shoot, especially whilst moving. you did a fantastic shot and with your determination im sure we'll see more of this fine work. as a keen bird man myself (and beginner too) i find your bird shots inspiring mate.

Nice captures but you are right, the bird is over exposed on all images.
