Any comments appreciated.

Excellent detail, sweet light and a great low angle Dan. The reflected colors in the water add a lot to this image.

I need to quit looking at the weather forecasts. All that rain in they were predicting had me doing other stuff today-and then the sun came out (for a little while).

Gorgeous Dan, a beautiful image. The background is very soothing.

Beautiful bird in a beautiful setting. The colors are perfectly complimentary. IQ is excellent. I’d try a crop where you come in from the top and right a bit and add a sliver of room on the left.
