Default Nest Interactions

Great Blue Herons on a nest seem to show intimacy through their interactions.

Wonderful shots. I especially like the last two, very, very nice. They do seem to display a certain intimacy between them.

As an FYI, those images were saved using an embedded Adobe RGB Color Profile.

So, unless you're viewing them with a color managed browser or image editor, the colors are going to be wrong (usually resulting in very flat looking images, since the RGB values are outside of the range supported by sRGB displays, and the application viewing them may not know how to map the colors back into the sRGB color space supported by most displays). So, anyone using a non color managed browser (IE versions lower than IE 9, Chrome, Opera and others) will not see correct colors. Most browsers in use today will not properly support Adobe RGB tagged images like those.

Ditto for print labs (most print services are expecting sRGB images, and if you send them Adobe RGB, they're not going to print correctly; resulting in dull, flat looking images).

I don't know about your screen Jim, but the above images, color wise at least, look gorgeous! The tones are just so natural looking, and at the same time vibrant!

Once again Ed, you've captured more than just great photos of birds, or great photos of bird behavior... These are simply great photos!!

Those are very nice, the Herons around here nest in the middle of a swamp that is almost impossible to get to.

Very nice! I'm using the current version of Firefox and the color in the last two is wonderful.
