    Default 3 is such a Pleasure...

    I have posted several juvi Green Heron photos but there have been 4 clutches born this
    summer at my small excellent pond.
    These fledged 2 days ago and I was fortunate to get the first out of nest tree
    perches.
    I could not have asked for better more cooperative subjects.

    Dan, Nice shot, the only nit is the intersecting branch, but that couldn't be helped.

    This is absolutely fantastic Dan! Love everything about this shot. Apart from the intersecting branch (it's actually growing on me), my only other nitpick has to be the 2 weird blobs below the bird in the middle. Easy fix in PP.

    I noticed the two small "blobs" directly below the middle bird's feet as well, but other than that this is such a fun image. I love the varying poses, all with good head angles. Nice BG, perch, comp.

    WoW! I am moving to your pond Dan! Rent me a room.
    I love this. Actually, I have a thing about 3 birds in a frame. Love it.
    Birds are all sharp, love the downy tufts and IQ is excellent with all birds sharp in the frame.
    Agree about the 2 blobs.
    In a perfect worls that intereecting branch would not be there but I still love this frame.

    This is such a cool shot; it's a perfect depiction of these curious and potentially troublesome teenagers. I love how we can see all the toes on each bird. I feel you might be able to warm the frame a touch and/or a touch of saturation. The downy feathers have a slight bluish cast as it.

    missed this one, super shot Dan all three have good head angles sharp with good details on all three color look good from here, if mine I'd get rid of the diagonal branch

    don't you love that little PF ?
