A great egret I found at a lake in a small neighboring town. Never thought the dark, gloomy weather would cooperate enough for me to use a high shutter speed, but it actually worked. :)

A bit plain in composition, but the shot itself is beautiful and sharp.

Pretty, the bird seems a bit too blue...but that could just be my monitor too! I think if the composititon were a slight bit different then you would have an exellent photograph here! 5

Did this guy just eat some thing? Strange lumps in its neck. Very good capture, though!

Great capture. Great crop. Playing with the colors and levels may have made the bird pop out a bit more - make his white shine strong against the background. His neck and head seem to be a light shade of blue rather than the white it could have been. I only wish I could take a picture like this.

Composition is very strong here, good use of DOF, lovely muted tones. Overall, nice job.
