The sun was in the right place for these shots of the Willet (please correct me if this isn't a Willet) and I'm quite happy with the exposure. I tried to capture a few flyers today as well. Below the Willets is a shot of a Yellowhead taking off.

Excellent. I particularly like (2) for the reflection in the water, infact the whole composition of the shot,and (4) for its immediacy.

I'm a big fan of #2 as well. For what others have said and its non-traditional pose.

Thanks you allfor the positive comments. Checklg, you have a worthy assortment of great bird shots on your site. I had fun looking around. That Starling is amazingly sharp and detailed.

Realy pleased you like the site. From now until September I'll probably be spending more time on insect photography, such as http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=11, but some more birds after that.

Regards, Graham.
