I always love finding and seeing this family. I knew there were chicks, but never was able to see them and now they are almost grown.

As always your nits, crits, comments and suggestions are always needed and appreciated.

Hope you enjoy ,

Fabulous images especially including the reflections. #2 for me. Have had a few around these parts but I have not been able to take a decent image of them - too far away.

Birdie, Another fantastic set. You always request crits but I can never come up with any
Maybe one day, I'll be able to.
Keep up the good work!

I like chicks, always have

Oh yeah birds.... more excellent work Birdie these are wonderful. I do have to go with the last as my pick, it really is a unique shot and wonderfully executed. I'll be different than the crowd about the reflections.... While I do agree that sometimes they really do make the shot other times they draw away from the subject. Take the family shot, crop the reflection out of that one and see how your eye is drawn to the subjects nicely framed with the flowers. Just my 2 cents, I've taken a beating here in the past for such opinions

Thank you so very much Alan. Yep, I find they are very shy here . Once they know I am there , they are off in a flash.

I agree with Tim about the family shot. This one might have benefited from some more depth of field, but looks good as is.

I enjoy seeing your work and your presentation of it.
I have a little different feel from these images, I'll try to explain how I see them and this speaks of the set not taking cropping or sharpness into account...........

These birds to me present themselves as pretty fragile, but somewhat bold, they have such great form and such wonderful color when exposed correctly like you have done. However, I see an in-rush of saturation and push of yellow/green that seems to steal from the subjects, no I like the color in the water but maybe not soooo much of it. In a few of these the amount of color overpowers the subject, that doesn't mean that I don't like the image but I will simply post one as an alternative to consider and it will at first look somewhat flat until you look more at the subject
These are fun shots to sneak in some 'burn' to ever so slightly darken or lightly vignette, to the point that it goes almost unnoticed. It forces our eyes to the subject and supresses some of the dynamics of the abundance of color in the perimeter. Just my thoughts, hope you see something from it or experiment a bit more.........

You are a great photographer, I just am putting this out for food for thought for you..

Enjoyable images Birdie, as far as reflections go................I would often rather imagine them then see them but there are times that they make exceptional images and if you like them, then you keep them

Take care
Karl

Very nice job on these, Birdie. Good control of the exposure
With or w/o reflection? Both have their merits. I personally include the reflections only if I think they can help the composition. At the end it all depends on what you like and what you want to achieve with your images
