After a morning of battling the no-seeums, mosquitoes and biting flies I got a couple keepers.

Yellow Throats were in force singing their hearts out.

Wow! I especially like the Kingbird and Grosbeak, but they are all nice. Glad you persevered and didn't let the blook suckers drive you away! LOL!

Looks like you had a productive few days, Mike... Some beautiful captures you got there. I am especially jealous of the Red Knots.. Been looking for them for over a week and only saw about 4 at Kitts Hummock (Just slightly south of Port Mahon)... Unfortunately they were rather far off, lighting was harsh from the other side and my reach was limited to my 300 with a borrowed 1.7x..

Good variety. Definitely some good shots here.

Question:
What would cause the halo around the subject like that? For example, with the Kingbird.
Reason is, people that I've shown my images to seem to notice them on my images so I'm wondering how best to avoid that. Thanks.
