Gorgeous detailed shots as usual - wonderful use of light and great composition. You must have webbed feet yourself to get so close without disturbing these fine birds!

Such a variation of birds you have there. Nice work with that lens. Are you using a tripod? Or, are these handheld?

Nice series - the second one is really good, there's so much detail in the feathers. That cattle egret looks so scruffy!

Very nice shots! You have a nice variety of Egrets & Heron down there. All shots are nicely exposed.

They are hand held, tripod is good for some situations but I find you miss many shots when tied down and you only have a moment to get in best position.
