    Great IQ,Color & Set Frank!
     
  3. Nice set with great variety Frank. Did you try a vertical crop on #5? I think it may work a bit better. Love the simple, "clean" look of it though.

    Glad you had a good time there regardless of the weather, Frank. Well worth the trip. We were in the 80's and sunny here the other day, but I am only off on the rainy days lol.. There is a good variety right now that you showed very well.. Thats quite an impressive group of BCNH's you got there.. makes me mad that those trees they hang out is out of my 70-300mm range though.. and nothing screams BBH like the RWBB's.. Great series!

    Fingers crossed that the weather this weekend will hold out.. probably spend some more time there ;)

    thanks Steve

    thanks Rich, will try that crop

    thanks Bill

    you and me both with the rain :cool:

    the RWBBs were certainly out in force

    saw a few harriers also, but way too quick for me....

    found a fox den though.......:wink:

    Very good set Frank. The light worked for you in #3, which is a nifty egret portrait. Also like the swallow very much. You must have had a good time capturing this many different birds.

    "found a fox den though.......:wink:"

    Nice... Had heard there were a few there. Could guess the general areas but haven't ventured off the drive much to find them.. That's the problem with living so close, I go there so often, many times just take one trip around the drive and thats it.. Been trying to stop more now and explore before the flies get unbearable..

    so true, Bill, after May, my trips to BBH and Assateague usually wait until Oct/Nov

    pm me for details about the den, if interested
     
  11. Nice shots Franks!
     
  12. Frank, you have some great shots in this series. I keep coming back to #7, I've seen that many Black Crown Night Herons at one time. I think they're BCNH's. Well done.

    thanks Anthony, Louie

    @Louie...they are BCNH, and because they are so far, you only get a small section even @400mm

    there are 3 times as many around this group, just too small in the picture with a wider lens..
