Love your third one! Did you mean for the horizon line to be so tilted on the first one? I always think of that the water is going to fall out of the lake with shots like these. It can be easily straightened, but perhaps you want it that way. Otherwise, the focus is very good and its a neat picture.

It's definitely summer time where you are isn't it? Those pictures look warmer than the ones I'm shooting here. I love the beaks on the birds in 1 and 3 they look mean enough. That bird in two looks simillar this one I shot here in Missouri earlier this week. Maybe it's just the color. Good work.

Nice birding pics. I like the color saturation on the 1st pic. Also the birds in the 3rd pic was well captured in flight. Do you know the names of all of these birds? They seem so different (even exotic) from what I see around here in california.

Photo No.1 is a 'Australian Pelican - Pelecanus conspicillatus ' plus a couple of 'Pacific Black Ducks - Anas superciliosa ' in the background and a 'Tree Martin - Hirundo nigricans ' in the foreground.

No.2 is a 'Richard's Pipit - Anthus novaeseelandiae '

No.3 is a flock of 'Straw-necked Ibis - Threskiornis spinicollis '

No.4 is a mystery, I can not yet find it's name. This was my favorite shot, he is only 2 inches tall and very quick.

No.5 is a 'Black-winged-Stilt - Himantopus himantopus '

You can see where I took these in the Google Earth Map image I saved -

K100D with a Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Hand Held
Most shots at full 300mm.
I hope to get a monopod soon.
Photoshop seems to take the exif when you save for web ( see http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...23&forum_id=80 )
