It was supposed to be calm for a little while this morning so I was out early.
This harrier caught me totally by surprise as they usually aren't up this early..unfortunately I underexposed him some (used +.7 EV when I should have been around +1.3) and got some noise...oh well?

Wonderful shots Jim. I love every one, especially the Harrier. It may be a tad on the dark side (hard to tell on this monitor, as everything looks dark), but it is still a great shot, and I don't see that much noise on my screen here.

Well done. You remind me with these, that I need to get my butt out in the mornings and do some shooting. :smile:

Beautiful series, Jim! Early morning can be a rewarding time, like it was for you today. I'm way behind in reading posts and almost missed this one. Great shots!

Hi Jim -

All great images, but I especially like the Sandpiper (beautiful composition) and unkempt Snowy Egret (wonderful "pose").
