    Sunflower seeds might get the Grosbeak in close for you....Oriole's like fruit or jelly....like maybe cut an orange in half.

    I have been trying to get a shot of this guy for over a week , but it seems like every time im not busy its raining. i used a 1.4 extender so i wouldnt have to crop but its not quite as sharrp as i think it should be. i am going to try and get an extension tube so i can get closer and take the extender off.

    Stuart - It looks brilliant to me, and the eye and beak are tack sharp on my screen. I checked your Flickr page to get the settings, and noticed that you were at f/8. So I'm wondering if your camera might be front-focusing just a bit, because I would have otherwise expected a bit more depth of field on the bird. But great job being patient and persevering with this one --- it really paid off.

    I agree with Jonathan it looks darn good. It's always tough to get detail in bright solid colored birds. With the extension tube you will lose infinity focus and have to be so close it will be almost like a macro.

    I'm still reviewing and processing images from Ft. Desoto. This is a Reddish Egret on the hunt.
