Oh the second one is my favorite! I love the reflection. It almost looks as if the bird is sitting there contemplating some things too, especially in the reflection itself.

Thank you. I kind of like the first one. He was sneaking through the grass and did catch a fish. Missed the shot. Focus was a bit off! Cheers JIM

I didn't really give the first one much thought since I was so intrigued by the second one. The first one is very nice too but I just don't like the blades of grass that are in the way of his head, it's too bad too or else it would have turned out very nicely.

#2 is awesome - really.
I'd love to see just the reflection cropped and rotated.
I think that would be cool.

Apprecaite you taking the time to look at both. I purposely shot the image with the grass there. Each to his own. Cheers bud! JIM

Jimbo, I really like the second one with the reflection in the water. I sure am surprised on how many keepers you get of these birds and I can't even get within 200 feet of one.

I agree. These birds are skittish. I will never get a shot as nice as these.

Though I do like the dinosaur squark they utter once they are disturbed by my presence and take off.

The closest I have been is about eight feet and I had to shoot my 70-200 at 150mm. Believe me it took me almost a year to figure these guys out. I also believe where I shoot these that they are use to cars running up and down the road so seeing me in my car is not a threat. Get out and that's a whole different story. JIM

So true, they do let you know when they are pissed off! JIM
