    Egrets, Herons and Ibis at the Rookery in Dallas, TX

    As I stated in THIS THREAD a few days ago, I was able to spend a couple hours at a new site for me. It was mid day so lighting was tricky at times but I'm pretty happy with these shots.

    #1 Black Crowned Night Heron

    #2 Great Egret. I know it's a lot of branches but I kinda liked how they frame it's head.

    #3 Great Egret. I like the pose and flare of the feathers.

    Terri:
    Excellent work all around. Great feather detail, great definition around the eyes, great exposure on the white egrets/ibis to avoid blown highlights. Taking these at midday was a difficult task you handled well. You are becoming quite a birder. Congratulations!

    Wow Terri........superb shots!

    Despite all those distractions, you made those birds stand out. Great technique.

    Again very pleasing shots from your wildlife portfolio.

    Thanks

    ...And so you should be! Very nice series, Terri! All good, specially #1 for me. Maybe the exposure on #5 could be lowered a little, but still very good the way it is! Thanks for sharing these beautiful shots!

    Thank you everyone for all the positive comments. It is encouraging!

    Otavio, I did struggle with the exposure on #5 so I understand what you are saying but ultimately decided I liked the brightness of it. I was actually more worried about whether I should have brought the dark trees up a bit locally.
