No matter how much you spend on tripod/head, make sure to get a quick release mechanism at the head which is "Arca-Swiss" compatible.

And now some more birds . . .

This cattle egret image was taken over 2 weeks ago (I don't get out to shoot very often). I processed it originally in DPP with way too much saturation and sharpening. So I just did it again with a lot less processing per Kernuak's suggestion and it does look much better (more natural).
