Dave,
What a great series! Two stand out for me. The vultures -don't think I've ever seen a vulture that "relaxed". And the Long-tailed Duck, from the swell to the color of the water, outstanding (of course my favorite duck species doesn't hurt either).
Thanks for sharing,
Tim

These are terrific images--something to aspire to. My favs are the duck and the gull--I especially like the way you've caught the duck on the crest of the swell with the texture of the kelp on the surface.

How many million dollars (yen, pounds, rials, pesos, whatever) have been spent trying to get shots just like those?
