These are excellent.
Roughly how far away would you say you were?

Hello "Combat" and thanks for the kind words. I would estimate that I was 75 yards or so from the GBH.

Hmm...did you have an extender, or did you crop these at all?
I may be just terrible at judging distance, but I imagine I couldn't have been much more than 50 yards away from the geese/heron I was photographing earlier this week, and they weren't nearly that large on the page... I don't have access to my photos right now, or I'd show you :\

They are all cropped. They were shot with the 500mm 4.0 Nikkor. Here is an uncropped version of the last shot in the series.

Really great work.  I'm personally a fan of close in crops, but in this case I love this image as it is very unique and is a crazy environment.
