Hi Irene,

Good capture on the GBH. I would have knicked the exposure down a tad. How are you lking the 80-400VR/ That has been one of my favorites for wildlife shooting.

Hi Harry. Yes I do like the 80x400 but small birds are still difficult to capture. Particularly the shore birds. One has to film from some distance away and they are extremely shy, one of these days I will probably go completely crazy and go for a 600 prime, I will then need a truck to transport it!!!!!!!!! Lately I have been having trouble with the tides, I find my best shots come at the midway point but lately the light at those tides has been all wrong. I did tone down the GBH in Nikon Capture but darkening the neck darkened the body too much and I had no luck with the burn brush on the head - too artificial looking. Anyway thanks a lot for the critque.
