    Discovered these images in my LR catalog while doing some maintenance - not sure how I missed them at the time. Nikon D300s or D700 (both since sold in favor of the D800). The birds are a Great Blue Heron, Anhinga (aka Snake Bird) & Great Egrets in that order. The egrets are in breeding plumage (the green eye mask). The Anhinga is a rather unique in that it will swim underwater to hunt. It has webbed feet similar to waterfowl.

    Very nice again Keith. The head shots are great but I love the last one. Very atmospheric. :)

    I love the stripes in the second one, but the last really does have atmosphere. I also love the way you just happened to find them... :)

    These are ridiculously good, Keith. They wouldn't have been left in my collection that's for sure. I'd be showing them off all over the place.
