    I haven't done much birding lately so today I went out in the backyard for some SRT (stress reducing therapy)! There wasn't much to shoot at but I think I walked away with a few keepers but most of all, it felt great to just be out there waiting!

    Really nice shots. I think I like the second one best, but both are good.

    I really think you're far too modest Denise, those are a couple of excellent bird shots! What were you shooting with? The 100-400 perhaps? What do you do to disguise yourself so you don't scare off the birds?

    Thank you! Yes, I did use the 100-400mm. I wish I had a blind but I don't do anything to disguise myself. They fly away as soon as I go out there but after about 10-15 mins. they start coming back.

    I like the first Sparrow, the red branches below it really make the shot interesting. Looks like you've really nailed the technique of creating sharp bird images!!

    Woodpeckers galore!

    Yesterday afternoon it was a Woodpecker festival in the backyard .... had 3 species at the feeders simultaneously!

    Giving the new 500 a workout...Downy Woodpecker, Red Bellied Woodpecker and Hairy Woodpecker.

    Joel, Great shots as usual, but I really miss the seeing the High Quality versions of your work. Uploading from local machine doesn't do your work any justice at all---do you have an account with one of the photo sharing sites you could use?

    also, what type of feed do you use to attract woodpeckers?

    Again, wonderful shots,
    Bob

    A little while ago I got a call from my neighbor telling me to look up in the big tree behind our houses-----This is what he wanted me to see:



    7D, 500L+1.4, hand held, ISO 400, f5.6, 2400. Moderate crop. also, there "were" a lot of distracting branches in the shot so I had to edit in CS5. Content Aware fill is a wonderful tool

    Thanks for viewing
    Bob

    Bob.....Awesome, a Coopers Hawk I presume, and in the yard too....really neat.

    I am using Zenfolio...guess I need to learn how to share images from there.
