    I captured a tricolored heron and a couple mallards yesterday. The mallard shots are somewhat dim and noisy because when they saw me they moved from a lit spot with a nice frontal shot to a dimly lit spot with a rear shot before I could capture them. :mad-new:
    No problem with the tricolored, he just sat there in that beautiful golden hour light and let me take as many pics as I wanted. Yeah, I chopped his legs off but that's because there wasn't much to see below that point, the reeds covered everything up quite a bit.

    The lighting in these are really wonderful, Kirk. The golden ripples of the first and backlight of the last are what I like most about them.

    For a dollar I'll correct the tilt. ;) Ha! You're right, it's tilted. I always forget to check that it seems. Thanks.
    Thanks, guys, I appreciate the feedback.
