Hello

N2 seems to have a lot of feather detail. I know that a lot of people are very averse to showing 100% detail, but could you post a 100% crop of the eye and fluffiness around, it as well as give us an idea of what the crop is relative to the whole image?

Super set Tim. With images this good it seems silly to try to pick favourites but I did #8 and #7 are both over the top.

#8 is a winner Tim, they don't get any better than the impact this one has in my book my friend, a dream shot buddy
I will 'nit' only because it is almost perfect, to refine it I would work out the circular spots that have a bluish cast to them, there are several and the ones directly over the back of Mom are the most noticeable. Now I want to apologize for picking on the shot because it blows me away otherwise..............and I don't say that often

Eagle juvi on logs with ropes and chains are sweet, so is that how you keep them there Nice light on them buddy!

Piper could use a bit more snap for me and a little less of the overpowering water, seems to be robbing from the subtle hues on the bird? Fancy feathers on this one

Great looking yellowlegs

Towhee looks a little magenta to me........gosh you are still my friend aren't you

Rail on a rail looking for? Splendid burst of color and a cool deep red eye to draw me in closer!

There you have it, me and my nits, what a pain I can be If I were only as good as I want to be

Geeeeez you see soooooo many cool things........great variety!
Karl the 'nit' Witt


Oh boy, why I oughta....

Looks like I woke up the beast within you

8 well I entered that one the contest we were talking about and left out the swallows So I like it too.
You know I love the log rats I'm hoping for more!
The thoughts on the SP are duely noted and I agree.
Towhee, hmm I don't see it but that doesn't mean it isn't there.
The Rail and Yellowlegs were treats in their locations, sometimes nature just plays nice.

A pain no, an honest friend giving a push, priceless.

Thanks Mr N Witt

Wow, what a sweet series Tim!

The Yellowlegs was my first wow...all three of the Juvi BE are terrific, I especially love the light in #5 (second wow) and that cool pose in #6.
Third and biggest wow was the PBG's... the light is gorgeous, and the intimacy between momma and young one is fantastic buddy.

Great stuff Tim... man it's got to be a blast shootin' from the Yak.

Kruk


Mr Kruk!

I was loving the Yellowlegs on the pads, what a setup! Yeah the light was changing fast on the BE, it was quite dramatic. You know I have a soft spot for Grebes, I have more of those two coming in the next installment. You bet it's a blast shooting from the kayak, very relaxing and a great shooting platform.

Thank you Kirk, I appreciate your words.

Your pot is full!

Does your 800mm ever come off your 1 DX ? Looks like a great combo.

It has come of now and again Larry, usually to be replaced with really short glass! Thanks!

wow! and this was just the stuff that was lying around unprocessed. a really nice collection of stuff, tim. i, apparently like everyone else, really like the grebe shot. very tender.

for the record, i think #4 is a winter plumage spotted sandpiper. solitary, in all plumages, has white flecks on his back (which this bird lacks). he is also a bit stocky for a solitary which is bigger and has a more elongated appearance (kinda like a yellowlegs!)
