A77 + Sigma 150-500 w/ OS

This Western Bluebird toyed with me for several minutes until he flew off for good. Taking off and landing too close to focus on, then taking off again and landing in a spot with the sun directly behind him. He probably had a great time laughing at me while I ran around to frame the shot. But I did manage to get a few very nice shots:

Western Bluebird. He really was that intense blue color.

Feeding at the marsh:

A couple of mallards snacking & enjoying a sunny day.

I really like this shot and all I did was place my shadow over the California Poppy. I want to try this again using my 42" diffuser w/ stand and see what happens:
