    Nice shots Mike. Especially like the first snowy and the osprey shot. The first two cattle egrets look pixelated on my monitor. I imagine they're not big crops, maybe something technical going on that can be fixed?

    Gee whiz, you folks in FL have it sooooo tough. You have be extremely lucky to see any birds at all when you go out every day (NOT!!). :rolleyes: 

    Nice shots Mike. :smile:
  5. Thanks Hunter. I'm sure it's something technical. Namely an instrument malfunction. :Guns: Battling an aggressive cataract that's made post work more difficult than usual. I'm sure I over sharpened them or perhaps selected the wrong tool and didn't notice. Your guess is as good as mine. I still can't see the problem, but don't question it's there. Just not seeing it. Hoepfully this "technical" problem will get cleared up after surgery. :wink: Damn I hate when I screw up in PP. :eek: 
  6. Fine looking bunch of phots Mike. Awhhh I gottta go with the Osprey

  7. Thanks Gale. Nice of you to say. Long time no see. How's it going? :cool:

    Great series! I too see a bit of pixelation on some images. The spoonie and the reaper are really good.
    I go down to florida every October. My last visit to gatorland I missed a great shot opportunity of an Eagle and Osprey in a dispute over a fish. I'm sure I will never have that opp again but I will be ready this time.

  9. 'gators, snakes, fire ants, spiders, hurricanes, sharks, 100* heat indexes and over 80yr old.... poor sighted drivers. Darn right it's tough living here.

    Thanks Frank.
  10. Mike a very nice set, but the last shot of the Osprey is very sweet.

  11. Good choice. Thanks Lou.
  12. love the osprey bud, hope all goes well with your operation.

  13. Thanks for looking and commenting Brent.

  14. Thanks for the comments Louie. Always appreciate hearing from you.
  15. Many thanks Ray. Looking forward to seeing you and the "gang' at MI5.
  16. Well, I'm envious of such beauties! I really like the pink spoonbill and the water reflecting the blue in the sky. Can't believe you didn't post these earlier! Nice goin!

  17. Nice of you to say. Thanks Dianne.
