Beautiful shots Larry, but then your shots are always that way.

In reply to tylerken, Aug 5, 2012

Some shots from this past week. All were made with a 7D and 100-400L. The shots of the Bluebirds are a little soft. I walked by the door and saw the Bluebirds and picked up the camera and started shooting without checking the settings. Result - soft pictures but I think it is still a nice series.

Something different - a rabbit

Thanks for looking,
Bob

Super shots Larry! Those boobies sure are a goofy looking bird. And who gave them their name anyway? Number 3 is my favorite.

Nice pics Bob. The rabbit's a nice change from all of the birds that we usually see. Actually this year I have seen more rabbits than usual in my neck of the woods.

Nice pictures Gautam. I think I may have seen a pheasant for the first time within city limits 2 weeks ago. It was on the ground and flew away quickly before I could positively identify it, but it looked similar to yours.

A goose of some sort I believe (a little bit soft though).

Canada Geese

Some Ducks heading somewhere.

A couple standard GBH's

Cheers,

Really cool shot FineArtPhoto. You didn't notice that hover-fly until after you took the pic right? That's happened to me before when photographing insects. Yours turned out really nice though.

Tom, I like your shots, they're all great. Have a question about #4, is that Canadian goose trying to fly upside down or is it trying to do a barrel roll.

Amazing shots ... probably my favorite of any series I've happened to see on here. I especially like 1 -- who are you to photograph me? -- 5 -- love the blue on green -- and the last one.

Are what kind of PP are you doing on the photos to get that color? How much of it is the body-lens combo?
