Stunning colours in a couple of the images. Not sure if you PP differently, but the difference between shots 3&4 is significant - the one of just the eggs has such vivid colors for the reeds and nest, whereas the 4th shot could be livened up a bit(?)

Thanks Marc - yeah I process different shots numerous ways , the last one brought out the most detail in the coot but yep it did deaden some of the other colors - I will re-work it , if we print it or maybe just go BW.
