Masterfully done Kirk! The chick is my favorite!


Thanks so much Tom... the Avocet chick is what I was after on this visit... the rest were a very nice bonus.

A wonderful set, Kirk- all of them.
Just a bit of sharpening of the first two to match the others, and you have a near-perfect set.
Very enjoyable.

Killlllllllllen me with that last frame buddy
Underwing reflection is awesome for the flyer in #4 and what a terrific angle
Like how you framed 3 and the water action adds
Little fuzzy one is a charmer in that gorgeous light!
Another stunner on the opener and I'm enjoying those beautifully exposed blacks

I had to work backwards because you blew me away with that last frame Kirk, cut/print/frame/hang on this one buddy boy

Tom


Humble thanks for the thoughtful and very generous words buddy.
I'm going to have to get some new decoys soon... these are staring to show some wear and tear.
These guys make it sooooo easy for me... I'll keep going back though cuz it's just so much fun.
I am looking forward to printing #5.
Thanks a million Tom, greatly appreciated.

Great job on these, Kirk
All couldn't be better. The exposure, the bg, detail along with saturation and composition
2 and 4 are special!

#3 for the win
However #1 is gorgeous too Kirk. Nice detailing on the Chick

Oh wait, here comes #4........that rocks!!

Great stuff in you dream zone buddy, very very pleasing to see these.
Karl


Thanks for the love on #3, I almost didn't include it thinking it was too similar to some recent posts.
I really thought the BG in #1 was unique which is why it garnered the first spot... now I think #5 is the stronger image.
The dream zone makes it so easy. This might be the last post from the pond for awhile... back to the fountain.
Thanks a million buddy.

Wow Kirk, these are some killers. I like all of them. I was headed that way Thursday but went to BC instead. Dont have any baby Avocets in files so Im gona run down there in the next day or two. The flight shot is stellar but the last Stilt is the outstanding, About as good as it gets.


Hey, thanks so much for the good words David, most appreciated. I hope you had good luck getting the chicks, they grow fast.
Hope to see you soon out in the field.
