Great shots Kirk. All are nice but I really like the Avocet in flight and the last stilt is exposed perfect and has tons of detail. Very nice!
See ya at the pond.


Most appreciated David... yeah, I'm sure I'll see you out there soon.

Beautiful shots Kirk. The so much variety and beautiful backgrounds and looks like you were able to sneak up pretty close to the birds.


Many thanks for the very generous words. Actually, I patiently lay very still and eventually the birds become comfortable enough with me that they wander very close as they feed.

As usual, great detail and color Kirk! Keep em coming.


Thanks so much Tom, much appreciated. The action is really getting going at the pond so you'll see plenty more from me.

Thanks Tim... yeah, the green reeds provide some beautiful reflections for all the birds... even a Coot can look pretty.

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

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

Humble thanks for the very gracious words buddy... really appreciate your always thoughtful critique.
Still trying to get the post mating dance of the Stilts and/or Avocets against a nice BG.
The action is heating up so you'll be seeing more from the pond... I'll try to keep the perspectives fresh.
Be well my friend.

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).



Really appreciate the good words and PM sent.
Thank you.

I most certainly like Shovelers and #1 is darn fine!
#2 for me Kirk the greens in the BG are a bit too dominant, IMO would be neat to pull down the BG saturation and let the Shoveler shine strong!
#3 great IF, love those powder blue legs

The Coot is much like the Buzzard, only a good photograph makes them look good.............and you did
#6 I like a gal with a sense of humor She's mine!
#7 looking fine Kirk, nice on white and mauves

Your Stilts are cute

You're kidding!!!!! All from the same pond; I hope not all in one day. Avocet is wonderful; I love those birds. The shovellers are also a fave of mine! Don

Really appreciate your objective eye on greens in #2... I like it as is because the light was that good and that strong for a few minutes on those vibrant spring green reeds. Since you and Tom guided me to richer/deeper colors I lean toward more than less, but I do have to be careful not to overdue it, so thanks again for keeping me honest.

Thanks for the always thoughtful and helpful critique buddy... and for pushing me to be better.

All from the same pond, all in 2 hours.
Yeah, I love this place.

Thanks for the very kind words Don, most appreciated.
