Taken at Ship Island, Mississippi.
#1 i believe is a sandwich tern, not sure though. The shot looks great!! really sharp, nice work.
#2 is a Black skimmer, seems like your DOF is to much for a shot like this, it would be better if wings were in focus to.
#3 Black Skimmer, great shot, nice expression captured to.
#4 Black Skimmer, i like this one.
#5 Looks like some sort of a Heron, not sure the type. Looks like its been cropped down a fair bit, making it loose detail.
Great work on all!!
very nice, #1s my favorite.
Correct on all the species. The last one is a reddish egret (99 percent sure).
You're right about the focus of the wings in shot number 2, though i'm not sure if it was the wing movement or the dof that caused the blur. Sun was really bright that day.
On the last shot, it wasn't cropped, but he lack of sharpness may be from the fact that I was panning to get the shot.
Thanks for the comments and critiques!
