Wow, Ellen, these are even better than the ones in your previous post. Awesome!

  • Cormorant(?): Absolutely one of my favourites, really good flight shot with great use of the leaves to form a natural frame (yes, pity the wing touches the leave, but that is only a very minor detail).
  • Surprised look: This one I Like very much too and is perhaps my most favourite one of them all. Love the look on the face of the bird, nice composition and great soft background! Cool!
  • Silhouette: I always like something different, and this is a good example of trying something new. For me it works! (I would just increase the contrast a bit to make the clouds brighter)
  • Ibis (?) in flight: Wow, those birds bring back some big pieces of nesting material. Nice flight shot.

Some really fine imagery! Nice to see some of the birds of Brazil (never been there, so they're all quite new to me).

Thanks for sharing.

The Brazilian Pantanal is really a great place for birding and other wildlife. Besides hundreds of bird species, we were lucky enough to see jaguars, giant otters, caymen, capibara... .

The fly-shot is a green heron (although it is brown).
The surprised looked bird I apparently also did not identify. They were so funny, the actually came quite close.
The siluette is a blue heron.;;the lufthansa bird :D
The ibis witht he nesting material actually lived just out of our cabin. It is a buff necked ibis.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi Ellen,

Thank you for providing the bird names! For my own photos I always want to know the exact species, and that sometimes is pretty difficult…

Thanks for the feedback!

You're more than welcome  :D
