p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · more rails! sore this time.....


hi folks!

well the flooded marsh produces again! found a few virginia rails, but i was really focused on finding sora today. i was able to find two soras, both of which we hanging out in a semi-wooded area bordering the marsh.

not much ambient light so i had to go with the flash for these shots - lemme know what you think.

****i have needed to do very little cropping on these, hence the file size is > the 750kb as permitted by this site. i just made the images smaller to make them fit. however, they all all now different physical sizes. what is the best way to combat this problem? i just do not well understand the relationship between pixels, resolution, and image size. i suck at computers........

UPDATE!!! PROBLEM SOLVED! no need to revisit this!

thanks if anyone feel like telling a luddite such as myself how to correctly size my images!

thanks for stopping by!

Another wonderful series, Dorian, beautiful for both the images and the biology. (I did not know anything about Sora, but realize now they are all part of the Rallidae...as are the more familiar coots and gallinules).

My favorites are the first and last shots for the poses and head angles; the last really shows off the distinctiveness of this species. Use of the flash is most apparent in the third image due to the dark background. I guess I have slight preference for the other images, just because there is a subtle reinforcement of natural surroundings. But the use of flash in the first, second, and last image is barely noticeable. After one final look...I really love the first image; it speaks to the environment and the position of the photographer.

Very nice work Dorian, lucky you getting a sora too!!! You did a great job on him in the shadows. To my eye the closer is the king of the set, it's a darling portrait with just the right amount of flash
