Sorry guys, I'm going back to the feathered kind of bird.  :P Hope you don't mind  8)

Some "birds on sticks" type photos, I hope to get something more interesting soon. But for now I'm pleased with these.

Small images, but 1 is a 100% crop to show the beauty of the feathers.

Stunning amount of detail - so vibrant.  Love it.

I agree. Now I am wondering how to save money for the 600mm! May be I'll hit on a bank. ;)

Well, the Hawk came to my "studio" with his lunch. He called thrice. I picked up the camera and took 3 quick ones and noticed a crow was on the tree too. I then went to the terrace to take other pics but by the time I got there, they were both gone...

Anyway, here it is. 5D3, 100-400L+1.4x @400mm so 560mm, f/8, 1/1250 and ISO 5000, hand held.

Wow, wow WOW. NV

I'm now making plans for a permanent platform at/in my pond with a blind as I've just got to get some shots like these come spring!!  And yes I'll even consider bribing with food!  ;)

By rights there should be snowy owls around here but I never see them. :(
