C&C--wildlife near Charleston SC
2

I typically do not shoot lots of wildlife, but I spent some time doing that last week.  I would like some C&C so I can improve.  Also, there are some similar shots.  Would like thoughts on which ones from those you think are better.  Shot with D500 and 200-500.

These are obviously not the full sized images.  They are all sharp, so I am more concerned with composition and something interesting/not too cliche.  Not sure if I succeeded on that front.

not sure which one of these two is stronger

Which of these two are better?

Do you have a preference for the egret eating the shrimp?  The best one is not included because I misfocused.  I had to do a bit of cropping here since even 500mm on DX was too short.  I wanted to get real close for these and not have environmental shots because the shrimp in the mouth is what is important.

I tried to do something different from the animal headshots.  You can see the water drops here.  It looks more obvious full resolution.

Any preference between this and next one?
