Nice pics Dave, as we were talking about earlier. I suppose both "views" have their place, and the "landscape" wildlife pics really do something.

Thanks for sharing, and for giving us a different dimension [I'll post an egret "landscape" as well, just for the hang of it, maybe get the thing in motion]

Well this IS the wildlife catagory. A good photograph stands on its own merits, whether a close-up or a "landscape."

There is certainly something to a close-up. How often do we REALY see what these birds look like? An that can only be done with a close up.

On the other hand how often do we see how these birds live life? And a landscape does that far better than a close up. So these images are not conventional landscapes, rather a slice of the life these creatures live

I think its good to show both.

Well said Dave. Now, I find one Egret to post and then you come up with a dozen. Lucky you.:lol: Very nice shots.

Great shots, Dave, I like the Egret tree best. Good use of reflection. I also have some reflection shots that I'll be posting when I can get around to it.

I really like this kind of photo, it's nice to see the close ups but sometimes to see the bird in it's habitat is nice as well.
