    Thank you for your nice comments and votes.

Old Finn - There was too much clutter (leaves, rocks) and other crop did not work well. I thought the splashing water being offset gave it balance.

Jade - Yes, I was at full zoom and could not get closer without scaring the bird away. A tighter crop would have really shown the poor image IQ.

mrsawyer - yes I did crop, and sorry I forgot to mention!!

    Very nice. Did you try a less central composition? In my favorites.

    Zoom in tighter would be my choice and up the shutter speed but at 600mm I'm guessing you're at the end of your reach. Tough shot to capture!

    Beautiful color and sharpness. Great timing too, to catch this scene. I like the modestly-done vignette. There is no mention of cropping. Was there any? In my favs
