    Can't let Harris get all the glory! :biggrin: Here's my humble forum contribution from Wachodahatchee. Some shots are similar to his , since we shot in the same spot along the boardwalk much of the time. I did get impatient waiting for that baby Bittern to show it's face, and wished I would've hung around longer, but we literally just got there, I wanted to do some shootin by God! :redface:

    Here's one Harris might not have gotten! :rolleyes:

    Neat shots Steve
     
  4. The first one is really nice for me as I like the BG as a nice part of the photo.
    I bet it would make a nice print and if you can still show a little more of the BG from the original even better I think. Not that theres anything wrong with the others as all make for a nice series.

    Thanks to all, and Louis,

    It was fun to get out and do some birding for a change. And, Lou, now that I look at it some more, I agree with adding more background to the shot. I think I cropped too much of it away.
