    I assume you mean the specular reflections off water drops on the shore
    behind in the last two photos.

  3. Indeed. Instead of "specular" I see "annular". Checked the EXIF to determine
    if a mirror lens was used, but no EXIF. A mirror lens WAS used, right??
    Anyway, I enjoyed the shots, thanks.

    No mirror lens. 200-400 f/4 + TC14.
    Also more likely bubbles not drops which is why you get a reflection off
    the thin film of water viewed in cross section. Sun was just behind and
    high overhead the camera.

    Check out the difference between the bird in your shots and this one:

  13. In fairness to Mr. Ruff, he's still struggling with motion blur issues
    wrangling a long lens and is shooting a bird at a distance out in the wild.
    The heron in your shot is very nice, but me thinks it was about five feet
    from you and tame. Here's one under similarly difficult conditions as Mr.
    Ruff's and I shot this 1,000mm handheld.

    I was referring to the types of birds, not the merits of the shots. I
    was around 30ft from the bird, but but shooting with a 4/3rds Olympus
    E-1.
