Wow, those are marvelous! I haven't seen fire being used before, I really like the deep brownish colour it brings out. Very cool.
Number 2, 3 and 4 are my favourites.

I don't mind at all, that is some good advice you're giving me. I did not notice until now how big of a head the tufted duck had, funny how the eyes can be blinded when looking at one's own work....

What a lovely shot Dan! Is that sap or something on its beak? A great detail. Beautiful birds they are.

You must've had one helluva day, so many great pictures in that session.
