Many thanks for all the kind comments and clicks on my Great White Egret and special thanks to Ron (Maiwand) for his UA. Very much appreciated.
On the same evening I took the Egret shots I also managed a shot of Canada Geese going over in a very attractive skein but rather late. They were a bit dark and distant but I have put them into the sunset taken about fifteen minutes later and I think they look happy(V1).
I have quite a few shots of greylag from a couple of months ago and thought I would add them for todays collection. V2 is a composite image of Greylags taken at Greylake in early spring and v3 a composite of Greylags taken at Shapwick on a steely grey winter morning.
In both cases I have tried to show the feel of the environment and the lovely reflections that I saw in both places.
I hope you like them. A

v1 is a real beauty, Arthur, but they're all so expertly 'composited'.

V 1 is so well worked and effective with that deeper sunset, Arthur, and next I love the composition at V 3, the birds' reflections just captured at the 'right spot'.
