Nice moment in time to capture with a good dynamic feel created by the splash and foot positions of the two main egrets. For me personally, I can't help wishing that the wing tip on the left was complete in the frame but as it is the picture still tells the story perfectly well.

Beautiful image, and especially love the reflection in the water. DOF is just about spot on, light and colours are spot on, to qualify this as a "critique" I guess that the only thing I might consider changing would be to dull down the bright patch (stone?) under the heron's beak which tends to catch me eye.

Lovely textures and colour to this little guy, he blends in so well. DOF is quite good, it might have looked better at a slightly smaller aperture to get the big real leg in focus as well as the body but at 1/50th sec you are running out of light.

Nicely done, the owl looks a little surprised! The directional light gives some nice shadowing on the side and the top of the head, but it would be nice to see more of the side and its colours. Striking image though.

Nicely isolated from the natural background and a nice pose from the bird. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Well seen, the foreground rock in the middle of the frame lines up well with the V shape in the background making this a pleasing balanced composition. Colours are good, detail is good and the hint of the rocks under water add an element of interest to the image.

Nicely captured, subject well isolated by the big lens and wide aperture, good colour and detail and the lizard adds a point of interest. Well done.

Nice image of this beautiful butterfly. Takes me back to my childhood when we would see them quite often on our regular Sunday afternoon picnics in the jungle.

Hi Val,

Nice shot of Marley in action... I must get down to the Hawk Conservancy again soon as I haven't been for a while. Hope you are well.

Have to say that this is pretty much spot on, and one of the best I have seen from here. It's amazing how much this little piece of coast changes all time, with the sand being washed away or deposited according to the weather and tides.

They look very much like common birds nest fungi with the covering membrane still in place, but I could be wrong. A well captured image though.

Yep, love this place, especially with a bit of weather coming in... I used to go up to Flowers Barrow to blow out the cobwebs every now and then! In fact I took my first ever deliberate landscape image there!

This is rather nice Joe... I wonder if running the burn tool at something like 5% on shadows over the moss would gives these areas just a touch more contrast?
