Re: Bluebird

A nice set Nate.  Have only seen bluebirds once here and surprisingly it was in the winter in a yew outside our bedroom window.  Gone of course before I could get a camera.

Cuban sea bird

taken in Cuba, I do not know the species, it was, taken with the m75-300mm, not an easy lens for birding, but then again it on single spot focus, I wasn't prepared for birds, as I took pics if this ocean bay, rather back lit, even raising shadows, still dark details

Re: Birds in Snow - Southeastern USA

Nice shots with all those different birds. And nice of you to put out the feeders. Tough for these guys.

Yes Richard it's been a part of the museum (the Natural World level) for quite a few years now, 3 stories high and very very hot and humid, gotta sit and wait for camera and lens to unfog for a long long time on those Dunedin cold days

Re: Birds at the Garden

I like the first shoot. Second would have been very nice just a pity about the branch. Oh well we can't change everything.

Re: Southern California Birds, EM1, 50-200 SWD, EC14, some shot with DTC

Bob nice set . I can't see the EXIF data but on some the DOF seems a bit narrow. Maybe stop down a bit and bump the ISO.

I do like the KF.

Re: Winter Birds

These are really very Nice . I had to blink twice when I looked at the EXIF.

An E-500 !! well it goes to show you don't need all this new junk.

Very well done.

We get carried away with gear and what we can and can't do. Thank you for reminding me that its the user who takes a good picture.
