I like the 2nd pic of the great blue heron. Really nice details on the feathers and the motion is frozen still. Sharp and good color saturation. The first shot of the great egret looks too processed for me. I can tell that your tried to outline the sillhoutte of the heron because there is a bit of unprocessed edge around the outside of the bird. Also the white feathers are completely smoothed over, so the details of the feathers are lost. Was this with Neat Image. Sometimes you can play around with noise reduction software setting to get enough of the noise smoothed over without loss of detail.

Nice.... but don't see that Sesame St big bird? :-)

Egrets aren't all that big (what's the other one?... oops you did say blue herron.... sure about that?... most I see here are juveniles...passing through don't stay... and not nearly that contrast difuse.) We have tons of egrets.

Very nice shots... especially the heron.

great snowy egret is as large as a great blue heron which is the bird in the 2nd image. both have wingspans of +4feet.

Thanks Royce! I agree that #1 looks processed however with the exception of being cropped that's pretty much the way it came out of the camera! Not sure why but I was surprised also! Jim

Thanks Darren! So that is a normal "shake" of the wings, guess I had never seen that done before! Jim
