Jeff,
I am like a statistician. Will keep my head in an over, my feet in a refrigerator, calculate the
average and say I am perfectly comfortable. :lol:

The peacock is certainly the fancy one of that pair. Looking pretty fancy yourself, Sury :) Nothing better after a hard day behind the lens.

Beautiful white heron pictures, Sury :) As Ossie say, the reflection shots are particularly good.

Well caught bird there, Ossie. Looks like some sort of humming bird?

Few more from recent trip to India. I was quite a distance away and was using 70-400G and hence heavy cropping.

Lots of nice detail in the last one, Sury, and I really like the warm colours and ripples in the water in the second. :)

Nice shot Pitter. Was a flash used? If so, light seems a bit harsh
and if it is not, perhaps over sharpening?

Yes Sury flash was used and indeed subject was over flashed as a result of the camera being too close. Some day I will get a more adjustable unit for the camera.

Ah, that explains it. I would rather a picture than none at all. :)
One of my favorite tricks is to have facial tissue handy to drape over flash.
