    Wow, great stuff! The shallow DOF the ND filter allows for works really well!
    They are all super, but I think I like #1 and #5 the best. #2 might be better with a square crop so the out of focus bird isn't in the frame. It just seems to distract from the main subject which is phenomenal!

    I love the crop of #2, Armando! Egrets are such elegant birds. I was very surprised to see one here on Vancouver Island last summer -- a long way outside the normal range for this species.

    Congrats on the feature. They are all top notch, but personally, rather than the square crop on #2, I'd rather keep the crop as is and clone out the out of distractions. IMO, the egret is too close to the edge of the frame in the square crop. Nice work.

    Egrets are among a few birds I've tried to identify, despite lack of aptitude.

    Based upon the long neck in these gorgeous shots, I gamble upon it being a Great Egret.

    Other candidates would include the Snowy/Cattle Egrets, but I don't believe they were your subjects.

    In Florida I took my best video of a Great Egret fishing. They don't seem to dive bomb like pelicans, preferring to wade and then strike.
