Nice light, and nice low angle on both shots - that's a good looking bird...the brown coloration works nicely with the water background, which is why the lower angle is so effective.

Thanks for the kind words Justin. I've enjoyed all the pictures on this thread. I forgot to write on my post: I took these with a Pentax K5 + Sigma 400mm f/5.6 APO (manual focus) + 2x TC. The exif says f/6.3, but with the TC that makes f/12.6! Still usable, but barely!
