    (Top shot) Amazing that the reflection looks darker and sharper than the "original". Polarizing filter?

    Amazing photos! All nicely focused and composed, the only problem I see is the small leaf in the way of the owls face and:
    #1 is great, I went canoing through the mangroves on this tiny "river/stream/water path" and I saw a Tricolor and Blue Heron sitting on a branch near the water. I was able to get so close!
    #2Nice shot, I like it, but the barbed wire is a little wierd in it,b ut thats only my view. If it had both legs down I would like it a little better.
    #3&5 are great!
    #4-like I said above.

    Edit: "but the barbed wire is a little wierd in it" Actually I'm not sure whether it gives a nice effect or not, thats for you to decide.:wink:

    Breathtaking photos! I think you may have posted one or two previously? That hawk one especially looks familiar. Either way, amazing shots and my jealousy levels are high :)

    Thanks for the nice comments..
    • No polarizing filter in #1...lighting just worked out nice.
    • Red Shouldered Hawk shot at 1/1600 sec; F4.8, 500mm, ISO 250
