I hiked with my 500 through the sand to try and get the reddish egret doing his antics. He was in a very quiet mood and only stood still . I now am still because I am in pain

I did however get my first greater yellowlegs ( please correct me if ID incorrect).

Also found some sanderlings.

The last one is for those who might be thinking of the Victoria Secrets show last night - natures version of angel wings

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

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie




Greater Yellowlegs - A first for me

I can't stop thinking about the Victorias Secret show from last night That honestly is a lot of beauty and hard work and amazing color and lighting and display of.....................I better stop

OK, I always always enjoy your efforts Birdie, has become a pleasant treat to watch your growth in such a rapid way.
Overall, nice shots, very nice intact.
Crits for me:
#1 Just loverly
#2 Fun display of action and a nice balance of color and contrast
#3 A real charmer of a shot but maybe could use a hint of that contrast from #2 Just looks a little 'flat' to me?

I was doing some critiquing last night too during the show but no one was at all listening to me That is a culmination of a whole lot dedication and quality artistry!

Thanks for hearing me out

3 great shots, Birdie. I'll bet you got some sand on your shirt shooting these -- excellent angle. And it was worth lugging the big glass!

Amazing as usual, the low angle really gives you sense of up close and personal.

Very nice work Birdie, nice angles, the subjects seem relaxed and it looks like a beautiful day. All of these are well executed but I'm going with 2 as my pick. I would not have cropped it the way you did and that would be my loss, I really like what you did with it

Birdie,
First- the Victoria's Secret TV show.
I tried to watch it because, well, I'm a guy. But after 15 minutes I realized that all those beautiful long-legged women were dressed like clowns... some with wings. And they really walk funny (stomp is a better description).
I remember the first couple of Victoria's Secrets TV shows when they REALLY modeled sexy lingerie. And the vast amounts of visible skin was inspiring. Nowadays it's just a glitzy-crap "Reality TV" show- like we need another one of those.
Second (and most important)- your images here:
I positively LOVE them!
The first two especially, because of the fascinating Water action as a complement to the cute little birdies.
Nice work- per usual.
Charlie
