    The reflection here is great. Like the detail on the bird and that green water.

    Beautiful water color, and nice pose. Good exposure. This shows the hunched back pose of the Long-billed very nicely. My only nit, and it is a tiny one, is a small blurry white spot in the water near the base of the bill in the reflection. Tiny thing, but once I noticed it it kept drawing my eye.

    Nice reflection, and beautiful greens. I do wish the back half of the body was swung over parallel to the sensor. A couple of streaks at right that make it seem stuff was removed there.

    Hi Dan,
    Love that pose, BG colour and reflection. The bird is tac sharp. I do see the spot that Bill refers to and once seen it is a slight distraction. There's a similar one at the base of the neck in the reflection...but both are nit pics. I'd be happy if that were mine! TFS

    Nice light and overall scene. Good feather detail. The slightly off-parallel body makes it look slightly deformed accentuating the hunch back.
