    Thank you for your comments and votes!

Not sure why my EXIF is showing 4381mm. My data shows 483mm.

    Good capture, the timing is right on, sharp with good coloring and composition.

    Nice capture. The chaos of curling branches reinforces the seemingly haphazard construction of the nest.

    Good try, a little overexposed & branches in foreground & curved branch front of bird don't help, been there also, keep trying. Try removing curved branch & crop to isolate bird & nest.

    Nicely captured. I like the framing and the detail and composition are great. In my faves.

    Very nice picture. Well composed, good sharpness and Brightness/Contrast. First in my favorites.

    Excellent capture - they are certainly not the easiest birds to get on film. It's interesting how the branches mimic the soft colours of the Heron. Beautifully composed and lots of detail.

    It's a bird. But nicely framed and tack sharp in an Audubon setting. Hard to find any issues but if I had to find any it would be the sense that the blue almost overpowers the subject. My no. 3

    When I look up the EXIF data of the raw image, it comes up 483mm.

    Exif data says 1/800s at f10, 4381mm. That's amazing image quality if those numbers are true.

    I love the composition. The branches frame the bird perfectly. God capture.
