For all these pictures the light was perfect, so if you don't like them, I'm the one at fault. Of course, critiquing this stuff might get you in trouble...

He, heh - These aren't the best. The next ones will be of these guys actually catching fish...

It was such a glorious day! Even now, when I get to the beach, it's ten degree's cooler then the City, although, these shots are taken within New York City boundries...

Wonderful captures Dave. Love the clarity and color. The light reflection on the birds really enhances the feeling of tranquility in the scene.

Very nice pics Dave! One question, do they have any decent backgrounds on those water holes your getting pictures out of? That would make the pictures alot better in my opinion. Background and the correct lighting angle are about the first things I look for when I go to a location.

Somedays you win, somedays you lose. You spot the bird and the light is wrong, or the wind is blowing.

Everything came together that day. I have about one hundred shots of this scene alone. And quite a few action shots...

And then I had two separate scenes with the Snowys, and finally the Blue Herons showed up at a distance...

Not to mention Skimmers and Aarrdvarks (Hmm?, Well maybe not Aardvarks..).

And the dog worked hard in keeping them from paying attention to me. I was only about 60, 70 feet from the Little Blue, who from time to time would check on the bouncing wolf a hundred yards off. I circled around until the light was at the perfect 30 degree angle.

Things just worked out...

Dave, these are just PERFECT shots, superb in every way. I trust those were real reflections, and not just the photographer seeing double after two too many !!??

{pity about the Aardvark that got away, though :?}

My close-up vision is coming apart at the seams. For two years I wondered about all these weird beatles at the marsh, before discovering that they were tiny crabs...

Yes, not only do I see Aardvarks, but Rhino's elephants, Hippos and others, all of course smaller than the ones you have - and somehow I can never photograph them.

But no, NO photoshoping allowed... :lol:

Although one or two of them do look cute when I flip em 180 degree's and back...
