Hi Tom,
Excellent capture of this couple!
I've made some shots like this and know how difficult the exposure is, but you managed the light and shadows pretty well.
Very good the action and expressions caught, with the wigs extended claiming for its food.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Tom,
Excellent capture of these two young ones screaming for food. Strange how one has a yellow bill and the other one a black one!
Great sharpness and fine white control. Very nice!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Tom
Obviously it's youngster time in the American heronies.
They are cute. Perfect compo, great colour details

Hi Tom,

Wonderful shot of these two begging for dinner. You caught the cutest expressions on their faces. The faces - especially the one with the yellow beak - have excellent details. Nice colors and a lovely setting.


Outragious capture of the imature birds in a frucus...Great definition...Outstanding color and POV...Very well done...TFS

Hi Tom,
wonderful action capture. They must be very hungry. Lighting and focus great. Nicely composed. TFS
well done

...and I thought the first one was good...you keep on getting better and better. It is apparent you love what you are doing. Swell picture Tom.


I can hear them sing all the way over the ocean Tom :)
Lovely pair of egrets captured shouting for food.
Wonderful details and difference in the color of the bill.
Does that mean that the one on the right side is growing up a little more already?
Very well exposed shot, wich is'nt easy with all those lighter colored feathers of the birds.
Thanks for sharing.
Kindest regards. Harry

Hi Tom,
Wonderful action shot of these singing Egrets with impressive sharpness and exposure on its plumage. Nice colours and perfect lighting. Excellent POV and the green leaves as BG works well here illustrating the habitat. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Excellent - fit's well to my last two posts. These guys are so fun to watch, when they get overexcited in the expectation of food. Good contrast and image and the little areas of white OE isn't really a problem. Kudos! Klaus (have to re-visit...)

Hi Tom,
Great shot, with this two chick
nice white balance, well done,
TFS. Best regards/Lawhill

Très belle prise ces deux oiseuax ensemble.

Hi Tom,
A very good capture of these beautiful cranes. Very good lighting and details. Most probably its their matting time. Thanks a lot for sharing. I will be back for :D

Hi Tom,
It is hard enough to take a good picture of an egret but to catch two in action and in sync in one sharp image is really great. Perfect exposure gave you good whites and nice detail in the wings. Well done.

hello Tom, I was to see your photographs, they are splendid and of a very beautiful quality. Many thanks to share
