That second one has lovely light and wonderful reflections. You'll want to work on the over-exposed hot spots a bit. Excuse me if you've mentioned it before but what camera are you using? I really like all the wildlife you've found here.

i like shots 2 and 4 here but you'll want to try to save the whites in shot 2 as iggy mentioned.

I'm shooting with a Nikon D-90. I'm not well versed in photo terminology, when you say hot spots or save the whites, are you talking about the little white bird that's not defined?
Thanks for the comments and kind words.

Love that second one. I think Iggy and Marko are referring to the blown out whites in the two birds.

Very nice eye for composition Bandit. Really like that 2nd shot with the Egrets and Heron, with the reflections and contrast.

Yes, you are losing detail within the whites on this shot as they are way too "hot"

What a nice assortment of birds. You are so lucky to have the opportunity to see them!
