Thanks for the encouraging words, guys.
More lovely shots posted! I'm really struck by something in the egret shot - white against white?? Anyway I find it to be a very appealing shot, well done.
Having worked all day Friday and being beat, it was just before sunset and getting cloudy when all the robins that are congregating and other birds were out in number. My wife says get your camera, there's a lot of birds. I replied, it's just too dark, but couldn't resist. Well, there were some opportunites and I got others similar to this one and was excited until I opened them on the computer. I couldn't really get close enough but normally I'd be able to get away with a little cropping.
So, the question is, given the high ISO needed is this counter productive or should I accept it as better than nothing? Any thoughts? I think I fellt more negative than positive.

Guess this is a prime example of where a flash is needed!
