Man, you guys get some great light down there. Add some talent and voila, you get shots like these. #1 is a stunner for sure, D. Wow!

I special order the light every morning before I go out H. Just let me know when you'll be here and I'll make sure it's all good buddy.
Many thanks for the good words my friend.

Such a lovely canvas to put your subject on in #1 Kirk, darn sweeeeeet buddy

#2 you got me wondering, did you enhance the softness of the back Mergie or was it out of camera with that little of DOF as it appears to my eyes a bit strange looking. However, super duper fine exposure, great color and a nicely dappled blue sky

Karl


Thanks for the good words Karl, always appreciated.

#1 was a nice surprise... as I was shooting the Willet flyby, the BG you see was just a split second and I was fortunate that it coincided with a nice wing position... I'll take it.

No enhancement to softness on the back Mergie, just the shallow DOF. It looks a bit odd to me too, normally I won't post any overlapping birds but this was the best of the Mergie pair and I really wanted to share one of the images.

Excellent shots Kirk.
Isn't that 300mm with 1.4TC a great combo
I use it all the time.

Beautiful background on the Willet shot Kirk.

Having the week off from work, I'm hoping to get out to Bolsa Chica one day this week.

Super work Kruk! Willets are a favorite of mine, to see this one against that orange bg is just too good While I do like the Mergies, the second may be a bit too much OOF for my taste Still I would have taken the shot and prayed

Nice job Kirk

Thanks for the very kind words Saba. Yes, this combo is very versatile for both static shots and IF's... although I still look forward to the day when I'm able to get a 500mm.

Hey buddy, thanks a million... I was so pleased to get the Willet against that BG in that golden hour light. I agree on the Mergies... I almost didn't post it for the OOF trailing bird, and also because I don't really care for overlapping birds either... but they're not here for long and I was stoked I got a pretty decent shot of this pair.

Thanks again Tim, most appreciated.
