Great job with these Kirk. The Avocet looks like the same male I shot last Sat.
Hes in great breeding colors and you did a great job capturing him. The last shot is stellar!! Well done.

I need a new emoticon for this set my friend

#2 such a nice shot to the eye and bill I would be inclined to bring the crop further up the back for less distraction
#5 unique and I really like the element that forces my mind to see those eyes pop open!
#7 Fabulous Just fabulous Kirkster

I need to find me zone like this soon, sure is amazing to see at this angle.

Killer set Kirk. You continue to prove that it doesn't require 500mm or larger lenses to acquire awesome shots like these.

Can't believe I missed this set Kirk. WONDERFUL images, every one of them! I'm digging them all, but really REALLY like 5 and 7.

Images to aspire to

All nits and crits Karl has a tat of that on his back

I'll give you nits
1 I like it just the way it is
2 my least favorite of the set, maybe the body blur is too much for me (talk about nits )
3 oh yeah baby!!!
4 looks like he is in the deep end of the pool. Cool to him so deep
5 love the sheath of water on the head
6 well titled
7 like this better than 6 but if this wasn't here 6 would be my favorite This one rocks Kruk

There you have it, you come out swinging and knock most of them out of the park with the worst being a ground rule double

Way to go Kirk

Beautiful work, Kirk! Great angles and great isolation of the subjects. The images are clean and sharp and the bg are silky smooth.
While 3 and 7 are my favorites I'm with Tim about the second shot.
I really enjoyed the set
