 Got these pics last weekend. Very quiet as most of the spring migrants have gone. It seems we're now left with the summer regulars. I've posted these photos because I'm happy to see green after a long grey winter. I'm also pretty happy with the work my D800 does in the shadows. I usually take raw but the originals of these are j-pegs. I've sharpened a couple as I didn't focus them properly to start with.
