A terrific set, Dorian.
Your second merganser image is superb! Hood up, perfect reflection and sharp focus. Doesn't get much better than that.

Very nice work Dorian, these are all strong images. I'll go against the crowd and say I would prefer the last shot without the reflection Great job

Yes indeed that is a Purple Finch! Great image showing the color, soooo much different than the Red Finch in color.

That is a pretty looking shot of the Siskin!
Great work on the Hoodies, those have to be a challenge in any metering mode! I guess spot meter on the white and stop down from there Or just wait for diffused light

Good stuff your sharing

Great job Dorian, we also have an influx of purple finches and pine siskins this year already. I love the mergansers.
