    Great pics on this page!

    I'm not much of a birder these days, but found a swan at a local garden quite close. I captured this at just 200mm without that much cropping.

    I just checked and it appears that you were able to capture that photo with a 70-200 and a 1.4? I would have thought a 600m with a 1.4. I have not seen a loon in thirty years, but I do seem to remember they were very skittish.
    Agreed...wonderful intimate image, awesome!

    Some really wonderful work here in this thread recently....I have not made any travels but I remain amused with the backyard birds most of the time.

    I haven't done much bird photography, but would like to get a little more into it and a little better at it. Got some photos of this owl attacking my dog and sister and me on a hike recently. 95% of the shots I took were throwaways, but a couple of the ones I got were pretty decent:

    I think my biggest issue was getting the bird in focus. My first few shots were pretty bad until I got the camera into AI Servo mode, but even then not every shot was nice and crisp.
