    I love that egret, Joe. Good exposure on the whites and nice reflection. It all looks very liquid ... or fluid ...? Anway, looks great to me.

    I agree with Bobo, same ones for me, Joe. The last bird, the Grebe.....has a bit of a green cast.

    Hello Greg, thank you for viewing and commenting. I like the way that egret developed also, nice light and calm water. Here is the same bird with a little different light and angle.

    Thanks Paul, I will look into the green cast. I need more experience in seeing that.

    I love your egret shots Joe. Which of your equipment do you generally use for your bird shots?

    Hello Charles, thank you for commenting and viewing. Regarding my equipment... I use a Nikon D7000 and a Nikon 55-300 mm AF-S VRII lens, both purchased as refurbished by Nikon. Post Processing is done mainly in Adobe Lightroom 4 and Photoshop Elements 10 for what can be done better there.
