Default Later Afternoon Light at the Refuge

These were taken yesterday evening just before sunset. Thanks for looking.

Here's a Great Blue Heron and an Egret feeding in the same pond. With my big tele lens there was no way to get both in focus. Oh well.

A Juvi Northern Shoveler just getting his colors. He looks a little disheveled.

All very nice, but my favourites are # 1 and the last one.

# 1...I like the DOF, sharpness and the bird in the background.

All of them are very sharp...really good use of available light.

All beautiful shots. Birds have the most amazing feathers when you can zoom in close, as you have done very well. Duck #3 is having a bad feather day!
