Just a few , still out practicing.

The Loggerhead Shrike is my first

The scaup has snails on its feathers. Is this normal ?

Your nits, cirts are most appreciated.

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie

Oh I love the foggy morning scene Birdie... wishing I was there.
Exposures are great in all of these showing wonderful detail and tonal range.
Congrats on the LS, classic pose, beautiful side-lighting... my favorite in the set.
Very Nice.

How do you not like a bird with a purple head. Beauty. Scene shot is very tranquil! Don

Excellent images and composition Birdie. Your new equipment serves you well.

I am partial to the Lesser Scaup

Great exposures and details in all of these Birdie. Although I like the tranquil scene in the last shot, the scaup is my pick. Congrats on the LS - I'd clone out the curved branch as it doesn't add to the shot for me, and are there some dust bunnies in that shot? In 1 I'm seeing some strange color shift areas in the sky. Does anyone else see them? I may have to give up heavy drinking in the AM if others don't see them... ~ Ron

These are all nice Roberta,
The Scaup being my favorite.
I like how you used the foreground posts to anchor the scene.

I love mood photos so I'll take the last...and it would be nice if they moved the mooring a bit to the left...maybe you could get the harbor patrol to do that prior to your next visit..

A good set, Birdie.
Me too for the scaup- that's a perfect shot.
I also really like the last image. I'd be tempted to do some significant cropping on the left, though. Perhaps there'a a bit too much space out there considering all the other things in the right half of the pic.

Love the last one Birdie

Pretty impressive on the Scaup Quacker!

Not sure on the Loggerhead, color looks off to me, a rendition offered but I don't know the light you had but see whatcha think

A tiny bit more for me on the gull but I like your thinking in this one, never know what can make a great gull shot and this is a way to to do it, uniquely.

Lovely set Roberta,

the Loggerhead Shrike is my pick even though it's a tad soft. But it's one of those birds I've yet to see....

I really like the detail and the composition of your Loggerhead Shrike and the last foggy morning, Birdie. Very lovely set.
