    This is actually a green heron. Nice shots, but the time of day is really a pain here, because the light is so harsh and contrasty. The first one is nice and sharp, but the 2nd and 3rd I would consider tossing out because of sharpness issues. While there are exceptions, wildlife photographs are best when razor sharp.

    the image quality just looks kind of poor in all of these pics for some reason. maybe it's just the harsh light.

    All great captures though.

    yeah i think its the light, and the lens goes a lil soft at 300mm.


    + it was more of a see the bird flying out of the corner of my eye, whip the camera up and snap quick before it flew by for #2 and 3.
