Looking East toward the Rockaways, across a tidal pond at mid tide

All very nice. The landscape seems to enhance your attention to the bird somehow.

Thanks!

There's certainly a place for both. There's nothing like looking at the close-ups, but than, I feel that images like these give a context.

Hi Dave

These are all good shots and much better than most of mine so far. You seem to have your settings worked out very nicely. I was going to try the Egrets again today on the way home but they were gone. I stopped and waited for a while but to no avail. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks Norm, Houston.

I was hoping that Bobbyz's computer was fried, so that I could post these images without being compared to his...:?:

I've commented about the highlights to Houston. No matter the background, the birds need almost twice the speed of what would normally be an appropriate shot. Since with my rig, the light meter is disconneted, this is actually easier for me to do than someone tied to a meter and an automatic mode, which gives the wrong settings.

BTW Everday I pray that you reduce the size of your images Norm, so that I can see more of them....
