Here's the rest of the picks from the last hike.

Snowy Egret


A flock of Stints zipping across the bay. These guys are tiny. They are the size of little sparrows.



A Pelican. It was a hazy gray day in the bay. I thought I could fix this in post processing by increasing the contrast, adjusting highlights/shadows, and running neat image, but this was the best I could get. If I increased the contast any futher, I lose detail on the pelican.



A red tailed hawk.



(Edit#2) Female Bufflehead (Thanks Tom Lusk)

You've done it again, the reflections of the flying Stints are very cool, the Snowy Egret is so sharp and the duckling is just so cute. All beautiful, well done Royce.

wow good ones there.

The read tailed hawk is great which gives me some pointers. I have never managed in flight shots. According to some local experts, we may have somein the next few months if lucky in Toronto. I am just starting and would not know if it is true

Thanks for posing

Daniel

All really nice - love looking at all your pictures! Pelican is nice as it is, but did you try selecting just the bird and leaving the background alone? I did that with one of mine, where I increased the contrast on just the bird and left the background vague. Don't know if it would make it any better than what you have, but wondered if you had tried it.

Nice shots, I think the "duckling" is actually an adult Ruddy Duck.

I really like the POV on the falcon, but the egret is tops! Great shots!
