    I was down in the Bosque last week and got to see the Wood Rail that has never been found in the United States before. I haven't gone through all my photos yet but will post sometime this week. Warning: I didn't get very close so the photos will be more for my personal documentation more than anything.

    I wish. The craze was already started when I got down there.

    Caught some hummers this weekend. Unfortunately, the males were too shy to approach the set-up (see below, 2X430EX, 1X580EX, camera mounted 600EX, all at 1/16 power + 5DMKIII w 300 2.8II +25mm extension tube, f11 at 1/200, ISO 360). Hopefully they will cooperate next weekend.

    (not sure why that posted rotated - it isn't on my screen.)

    Any ideas for catching them fighting? I got a few, but all OOF. Stochastic success is the likely answer. I thought of a wider lens, but don't want to lose the limited DOF w nicely blurred background. Maybe the 100 2.8 macro? I'll experiment.

    Just back on the site after a busy few weeks - beautiful shot Joel. The detail in the dark feathers is really nice. Any special tricks in processing?

    thanks.....I have been using Nik Color Efex Pro which works very nicely.....especially the tonal contrast and detail extractor. I use them on a separate layer and usually blend it in only slightly....these help with details but you have be careful not to over do it. Also getting the exposure as bright as possible without clipping the whites will help tremendously.
