    These are all great bird images. The first one really pops from the background and is a classic Egret in flight. Good pose on the Ibis and good eye contact. The last is a classic wading/hunting shot. You have great exposure and detail here.

    Those are great. The white really pops on that first one. Well done.

    Nice work. #1 is the outstanding one for me - the background tree forms a nice frame for the bird and the contrast really makes the bird stand out.
