Here are some more pics from Circle B Ranch.. I walk out and just sat by one of the small lakes to see what would come by. It was very calm, the water was Beautiful, but not a lot of going ons... I did get a king fisher slamming his fish into the tree, both on video and in picture.. a little far away, but I will edit that and post it later...

LoL, you are too kind.

Having great equipment helps, but honestly what has really helped is the advice, creitique and the patients you all have shown me. I do thank you all.

Beautiful snipe photos !

Emblematic? Such a big word for a small bird. I would say it does symbolize cute but hard find. LoL.

Great shots Ed. I really like the 1st and 4th. Wonderful IQ and light in both and the fish / reflection definitely adds. You might leave more room under the reflection in 4. Bg in 2 is a bit distracting for me. It is subtle but I think I can see a definite IQ difference with the D850 and D500 in these images.

All great shots Ed, love the Grebe though, Cormorant a little dark (as posted) for me but nonetheless a beauty.

Thank you, I was thinking about adding some room on the bottom and a little from behind.
