Excellent imagery, Jerry. The first one reminds me of Shreeni's geese above, where detail and sharpness is not really important, but the ambiance of a natural place is nicely conveyed. "Birders" all to often photograph themselves into a blind alley populated by countless birds on a (set up) stick, and very little natural environment in there.
Thanks, Peter; admittedly, I'd like some set-up, super-detailed avian portraits, just to hang and admire, but my stalking skills are so far limiting me to "environmental studies"...I have plans for my bird feeders this winter, at least...
If nothing else, captures like the "fly-by" above are able to put me (mentally) back in the boat on a chilly, foggy autumn morning, in the stillness and solitude of the deserted dawn lake...and that's no small thing!
