Snooked, did you use a tripod or rely on the shake reducer. Pretty sharp for that long a distance, especially with the dark background. I like the pose on the last one. Young love in the wetlands!

I was just thinking the same thing .... this series is definitely sharper than the 'GBH' series. What was the F stop of each series Snooked (if all photos in each were the same) ?

I used a tripod, had solid location to place it with good view and easy panning for flight shots.

The F stop was the same, the light was poor for the first series (slower shutter speeds), better for this group.
