Excellent Kirk, that Greenie looks like it was in full streamline mode
Mergie has a great water reflection going for it with great light and Mrs. Buffle
couldn't look any better. Great set.

Thanks Tim... I was really fortunate to be in the right place at the right time for the two flyby's.

All very nice, Kirk. Looks like a nice sunny day with you, the sun, and the birds all in the right locations!

It was a beautiful afternoon Greg, and the birds were most cooperative... love when that happens.

No easy static shots for you my friend. Looks like you had a great day with names that sound like a group of sorority sisters or hockey players...take you pick. The degree of difficulty in the first two is really obvious...but I really like the flap of the last as well.
Eric



Let's go with sorority sisters.

It was a great afternoon indeed, and thanks for the good words Eric.

Greenie on a bombing run is captivating Kirk and mark me down as envious of that fine light
Detail on the lady Merg is sooooo fine

Better believe the degree of difficulty for these two is not lost on me brother

I'm betting the Buffy males on the peripheral of the pond were panting when this little lady reared back
Wonderful image in every respect my friend

That is one good looking greenie. Superb shots, you can make the 420mm f5.6 shine on the 800D

You've done it again Kirk!!!! Wonderful set.
I love them all. However the second with the wonderful light and reflections is my favorite.

Birdie


Thanks so much Birdie... really appreciate your always kind words.
#2 was from a spot at Bolsa that is near the main highway that I had never tried before, the Mergies were swimming back and forth and I thought I would give it a try... as soon as I sat down this Mergie takes off and heads right toward me... this was my favorite wing position of the bunch.

Great job getting the greenie in flight! I still don't have one yet. The other two are fantastic too.

-Quang


Most appreciated my friend.
Very fortunate on the Greenie, he was standing on the rocks near the floodgate and I was waiting/hoping for him to take-off... after a few minutes another photographer walked up from the other direction and flushed him right in front of me and I was ready.

Oh yeah Kruk, I'm liking this set. The greenie is super cool but the mergie with all that detail as she rockets by is just too good, wow thats a killer and with a tc at that!!! Maybe you don't have to sell all that black gear Sweet light on Mrs B, she's a cutie

Tim


Thanks Tim, most appreciated.
Caught the Greenie in the usual spot, but the Mergie was a new spot I thought might be good and was it ever... as soon as I got in position this gal takes off and banks right toward me... love when that happens.
