    I think I need to move somewhere more interesting....can't decide if #2 or #3 is my favorite....
  3. Oh, these are gorgeous photos of one of my favorite birds! I've been fascinated by the GBH ever since I saw my first one several years ago. You've done great with these images!

    Very nice especially #4.
  5. #8 is outstanding! Very difficult to get that kind of detail on a black bird.
  6. thanks everyone, I really appreciate your cool comments.

    Great shots right from the top with that first one of the GBH. I agree that you really did well with the cormorants. Those are both nifty shots. The GBH is actually a challenging bird to shoot because the white in the face is so easy to burn. You handled these really well. Good detail on the legs and feet too. Just think how nice they'll look when you get some nice green leaves to brighten up the bokeh!

    Very nice set of one of my favorite species Ray. :smile:
  9. Your In-flight are outstanding. That is hard to do. Very nice set
  10. Frame #2 large and display conspicuously! The best of the series, for me - the rest are no slouches either.
  11. Nice shots. Number 4 has a lot of "layers" in focus - excellent.

    4 and the last are real stand outs
    Good shooting nice images
  13. Very nice Raymond. I was fascinated by these in Huntsville, AL a few weeks ago. I'll be on the lookout now to catch some around here...never bothered before.

    Excellent series. I love number 8 of the cormorant.
  15. thanks again everyone, you all are very kind and generous with your words.

    Hi Frits.. Just wondering if you know my friend Scott Linstead, he lives near Montreal, and knows some good shooting areas for herons.
  16. Very nice set, Raymond. The 2nd one is to be framed for sure.

    I see we have the same acquaintance Scott Linstead. He's a fine gentleman and an excellent (and patient too) bird photographer.
  17. Yes, very true.. and he likes owls too!

  18. A very accomplished photographer indeed, but I don't know him personally. Of course I'm not a "birder" either, just trespassing a bit into that territory while in Huntsville :smile:
  19. Very nice series Ray. I'll go with # e as my favorite. Well done as usual.


  20. thanks Jose... #e??
