A variety of Birds
4

I traveled to a green state for some vacation and had the opportunity to shoot the following birds. Hope you like them - critiques and tips for improvement welcome!!!

Shot using a Canon EOS T3i and Canon 100-400mm ISII

Heavily underexposed image as it was quite far away and sitting in a dense tree. Exposure adjustment brought in the noise. Will try to remove

Thanks for your views and comments.

Re: A variety of Birds

I like looking at the photos.  Some of them look like African birds but some I don't recognize at all.  Can you please include names?

The owl looks like a very small one.

Re: A variety of Birds

Sure. Is there a way to edit the post and add the names as captions?

Re: A variety of Birds

I haven't tried editing the post but I will often put the name of the subject in the shaded area at the bottom of the photo.  I have learned to never copy and past to that area.  There is a bug in the program that traps you there.  It is easiest to put the name and any comments before or after the photo.  You will just need to make sure the cursor is between the photos.

I would like to learn how some people can include the original photos and text in there reply.

Re: A variety of Birds

Thanks.  I had not heard of an Asian Openbill.  I thought it looks like a stork but it is the first of that species I have heard of.
