Not an exotic bird but nice, nonetheless.  Mallard drake, 5D iii, 100-400 F4 - 5.6L

And, here's a Mexican Mallard -- a subspecies -- ignoring the insect on his neck.

Great Blue Heron, Inner Reflection..
Lovely! What do you do to get these blue shades in the water and the sky. In my pics it goes to white :(
Usually the time of day and the right combo of shutter speed/aperture/iso... Time of day helps totally early morning or early evening, usually morning on some of these.  I also look for the blue skies, if they are already blue, they usually stay blue... unless there's a cloud behind them...

The only other thing I sometimes do is if the sky isn't looking quite right, sometimes I'll change the style setting in post to landscape to help bring out some colors in the sky, and pull back some of the saturation that may get on the subject if it's too much.  It doesn't always work but we have a lot of blue skies here in Florida, it's usually a pretty color in early morning...

Thanks RPT, I appreciate your comments!

Awesome.
yes, Sweet!  I used to get Black Capped Chickadees to do that when I was a kid, living in New England!  Great job!

Lovely tits! :)


Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) by alabang, on Flickr

The Little Egret is more delicate-looking than any other heron-like bird which occurs in Britain. It is much smaller than a Grey Heron, with snowy white plumage, a long pointed black bill and black legs with strikingly yellow feet.
Habitat

Feeds by the edges of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, brackish lagoons and saltpans. Breeds in waterside trees and bushes.
Behaviour

The plumes which are present in spring serve to emphasise the threat and appeasement gestures given at the nest.
Migration

Most of the European population migrates west and south, mostly to north Africa but also, to an increasing degree, to the european side of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts. After fledging, juveniles disperse almost randomly from July to September. This movement is presumably governed by prevailing feeding conditions.

I just love Raptors. My fav is the Kestrel, sat on some road kill, this female must have been starving as it rips the guts out of the dead rabbit. And no, its not set up either, its a wild bird.

Thank you Dustin. :) ALso saw your comment on my flickr. It was suggested I clone out the rusted metal bars. Will do so in the future.

Lovely tits! :)

It is a dead bird, not rabbit. Nice shot though.
