A very busy week at work for me and just got a chance to go through shots from last weekend.

The chicks keeping themselves occupied while waiting for their parents.

This baby mallard looks so cute with its tiny wings.

They look really good when landing on water. Also relatively easy to photographed because of
their big size and slower(perhaps its just look slower) than smaller ducks.

I think this is a starling.

Ricardo, you continue to produce some of the best shots on the forum. I'm most impressed by your exposure control. Every one looks so well exposed that very little adjustment in post processing was required. I'm trying to get to this point with my shooting. Not even close yet though. 8)

Excellent images. :wink:

Hi Frank,

thanks for the praise. Actually it looks "very little adjustment in post processing was required" because I already did post processing if it needs to. All three egret photos received significant post processing because they were partially in the shade. I chose to keep the highlight detail so the shaded part came out really dark. I have to do some HDR thing to pull the shadow details.

Great shots, all of them, but I really like the last one the best. Of course, who wouldn't like the ones of the baby birds with their HUGE mouths open! :D
