Great job on these, Kirk, with a very good control of the exposure. They all show pleasing color tones and some fine detail
I'll go with #4 as my favorite, but I enjoyed the whole set

Another wonderful set Kruk.

The first looks like somebody is trying to pull his wings off The bright whites of the under wings didn't catch you out, they look great. 2 is 1 with the dumb surprised look that his wings didn't get pulled off. 3 is the classic from you favorite haunt, superb. 4 is my pick of the litter. What character, to shelf techs and enough snot to grab my interest. Killer shot my friend, that's the kind of shot that makes the day worthwhile! Coot looks like he wants to be your friend! Mrs

Humble thanks for the very generous good words Tim. It was another fun afternoon with endless opportunities, the action is really getting going now so be prepared for more afternoons there from me.

Thanks again buddy, most appreciated.

Kirk

PS The ants ain't bad at all yet, so I'm loving it.

These are lovely, Kirk! Wonderful technique, and wonderful sense of being there. My favorites are Mr. Shoveler and the Avocet; there's something about the colors of the plumage against the colors (and organization) of the background that makes the photoreceptors sing.

Greg


Thanks so much for the very kind and thoughtful words Greg... I was actually concerned that some might think the BG for the Avocet was a bit too busy.

Really nice set, Kirk.
It's a real joy to see all those strong shades of greens in #2.
#3 & 8 are my top picks. Love them.
Chris



Thanks for the picks and good words Chris... yeah, I love the beautiful green colors of the reeds at the bigger pond.

Oh my, Kirk; what a terrific set of a great variety of birdies.
The avocet looks like it's flying upside down .
Probably not .

Beautiful set Kirk ! Love the colours/light.

The Stilts are great but the Avocet wins it by a bill, great shot !

Can you tell me how many focus points you use in general as I am finding as many out of focus as in focus with my D800 (with both lenses I use for birding).

on the tail dragger buddy!
Sweet light continues for these Kirk and I'm enjoying your excellent processing on all

Killen me with the Avo bro Great wing down pose and the BG is so complimentary to this bird

Both Stilts detail to die for and balance of B&W exposure is perfect

The Blue-wing Drake is a thrill to see and hope you get some flight ops

Perspective on the Coot makes for a very appealing comp!

Pretzel Duck has me smiling and I can see why he's got that look on his face in #2


More gold from the pond my friend

Great set Kirk with lovely colors and lots of green in some of them.
My favourite is # 4 for the way you captured the elongated drop of water between the top and bottom bill and # 6 running a close second for the unusual pose.
Great shooting my friend!
Martin


Thanks so much for the very gracious and thoughtful words Martin, they are most appreciated.
So glad that you and your wife got to go out shooting recently.
