    I don't see many of these birds, they seem reclusive and this one is no exception. I found it among the mangroves while kayaking two days ago. It's not a very good picture with all the shade, blown highlights and lack of sharpness, etc. but I figured it's worth a look at if you've never seen one before.

    great find. we get about 20 of them at the refuge for a week or two every year. they're a little ways off so hard to shoot, but i did manage to get a closeup of one last year.

    Thanks. I've seen a few down at the marsh last year so I'm hoping to see more there ... in better light of course.

    Thanks.

    Good shot considering the circumstances. Not so sure about the pink cheeks. What happened there?

    As previously mentioned, the highlights were blown out, maybe you over-read that.

    white balance overall looks a little on the magenta side, so maybe it's picking that up. i've seen similar coloring on in blown areas my shots after processing.

    I'm really not concerned with it, to me it's just a junk pic sitting in "Just For Fun " where I thought it wouldn't get any critique.

    Ooooooooooooooooooohhhh!!!! Touchy. I was trying to goad you into admitting you'd applied some of your blusher to it. I know what you do at the weekends.:D:D;)
