SX50 - Songbird Portraits (deep crops)

Hi all,

I've been shooting the SX50 daily (and pretty much exclusively) for about three weeks now. Here's a recent assortment of songbird portrait shots... all taken at the long end of the lens, and deeply cropped:

Northern Cardinal (male)

White-breasted Nuthatch

Eastern Bluebird (male)

Eastern Bluebird (female)

American Robin

Mourning Dove
These were all shot pretty closeup (@12-16ft). But we know that many people prefer full-view and/or environmental bird images taken at greater distances... Our new SX50 Gallery contains a variety of songbird images, all shot hand-held, Manual mode, in various natural light at distances ranging from about 5 to 50 feet.

View in Gallery:
Or as Full-screen Slideshow:

We hope you enjoy them,
