The reflection is way cool, but he looks blown out on my monitor, no body detail. Do I need a new monitor???!!!

@MontereyJohn: Hi John! Thanks for your reply. I don't know if you need a new monitor or if your monitor or my monitor need to be adjusted. I attempted to get the bird as white as possible and leave ever so slight details in him. It works on my monitors but I'm not positive mine is calibrated absolutely correctly. I've calibrated my monitors recently with both Adobe Gamma and huey/xrite calibration devices. But, I believe the results are still somewhat subjective. I do run two monitors on my system: an LCD monitor and a CRT monitor. This image is best viewed on my LCD. Details on the CRT are a bit more blown out. Thanks for your comment John! You're always welcome at my site!!!
Very dynamic and graphioc, its like the bird (is it an Egret) is lighting the water in front of it, an amazing capture, and I love how you handled it.

@Richard_Irwin: Yes, it is a Snowy Egret. Thanks for all your comments Richard!!!
Awesome image Craig...love the soft reflection and the light

Nice B&W shot of the bird! His reflection almost looks like the light of the moon reflected on the water.

He stands out so clearly - well done.

I can’t help but agree with friends above. This is indeed absolutely stunning, Craiger. I love it. Truly exceptional lighting, contrast, composition yet again. This one almost leaps off the screen, imho. Thank you also for the link to the video of Grizzly Island. I really enjoyed viewing it. Truly awesome and beautiful wildlife in nature, especially when undisturbed by mankind’s intrusion!
