Thanks Harv...I'm still trying to learn from guys like you and Krob78 and Gary and many others who are always posting such amazing wildlife photos. You guys set the bar high.

Yesterday, I discovered a mother wild duck and her 2 babies in the drainage ditch bordering my house. Taken with 7D, 100-400L @400mm all f/6.3, ISO320-500, handheld. Aggressively cropped and over-processed in DPP. Any constructive critiques welcomed. Thanks. :)
You're very kind Eric.  These look like they were taken a bit later in the morning, going from the shadows in the water off the plants.  I find that in images with water, if it's possible, get the sun behind you, rather than behind your bird... sun tends to "blow out" the water as in image #1.    I may have been tempted to shoot at iso 100 or 200 but not sure I would have gone quite as high iso as you did for these.  The 100-400mm lens is a great tool for these shots!  I may have tried a faster shutter speed or maybe a smaller aperature, to compensate for the time of day.  Perhaps an ex comp adjustment -1 to -3 could have enhanced the outcome as well if you weren't shooting in manual...

Btw, I think you have a lot of great images on here as well!  I really like the image of the Black Crowned Night Heron!  All the best!   
Ken :)

Thanks Ken and Don. You're right, Ken, the sun was in front of me. It was 9:30 AM on a partly cloudy day. f/6.3, 1/640s, ISO 320 handheld. I had Aperture priority with auto ISO. I'll try your suggestions next time. Don, where I live, 65F is considered freezing ;D. Please post your waterbird shots after the thaw.
