Wonderful set. That sleepy one warrants a "cute alert". Thanks for sharing

Great detail Doug. Have you added a lot of contrast or adjusted the black point? You might try being a little gentler with the adjustment. You did a super job of getting close

Thanks everyone.I am down in Florida now with my new 80-400g.This is the first time I have been down hear in August.No more rookeries like the spring.Also
the first time I have even noticed the skimmers here.
A local colony lets me sit down near them and they just do there thing.The interaction between the adults as well as between the tweeners and adults is fantastic.They talk up a storm with each other and reprimand the young ones when they do something they do not like.Will post a few shots of the the interactions.
