Very sharp and well composed. I know it's hard on these birds in direct sun, but watch your exposure - there are some blown-out areas on the head. If you shoot NEF's, you might be able to drop the exposure and recover those areas.
I have not had time to post process, but thanks for pointing it out. I will check it when I have time & redo the areas of attention. Have you been to the Orlando Wetlands?
Many times - I have not been much the last year or so since it seems the birds have gotten very skittish and I haven't been able to approach close enough for many good shots. Not sure what happened last year, but things definitely seemed to have changed. THe GBH's are the boldest and last time I was out they were the only thing I was able to photograph well.
i spend most of my time elsewhere these days.
Theres Cara-Caras in the parking. if you go in to the right side of the woods theres a Barred owl couple hanging around. The pileated are usually to the left of the pavillions.
Have you checked out Circle B Ranch in Lakeland?
