So the Tailed Jays are back in the garden. These days they have chosen another shrub to sleep on. This is one of the pictures I took a couple of weeks back. If you look at the red and black marking on the wing, it looks like the multi-colour print registration is a bit offThanks.
RPT, nice shot...If one is into "bugs"!
Yes..I think the registration is off on the wings. let's hope the technician isn't making a lot of reprints!
The 100L is a killer lens, extremely sharp and excellent for non-macro work as well...I think it may be the sharpest lens that I own...
Vikram, I used to have EF 100-400L IS, which is a great lens but I sold it and got Sigma 150-500 OS for better reach and I found the push pull to be a bit awkward ... my copy of the Sigma 150-500 OS is just as good as my earlier 100-400L IS lens if not better.
The Sigma 150-500 OS sells for about $1000 (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/549255-REG/Sigma_737101_150_500mm_f_5_6_3_DG_OS.html) which is well within your budget, giving you enough money left over to buy:
1. a good quality filter
2. a Lens Coat Lens cover (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/652524-REG/LensCoat_LCS150500M4_Sigma_Lens_Cover_Realtree.html)
3. an external flash
4. a Better Beamer flash extender (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=better+beamer&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=) this will come in handy to illuminate the birds so your images get a nice separation and pop
Here are a couple images made last week with the Sigma 150-500 OS (using an external flash + better beamer)
Thanks. Actually I have very little experience in macro photography. This was taken with the 600EX-RT mounted on top of the camera. In fact the 100L is my first real macro lens. All earlier "macro" pictures were taken with general lenses at distances close to the min focussing distance.So the Tailed Jays are back in the garden.

Hope you like it
Hi RPT, perfect timing, and perfect Image, some advice if you can, I've loads of Macro experience in Underwater Photography, but really just starting to enjoy above water Macro, have the 100f/2.8 L IS and was about to order the MT-24EX, any advise on this ??, have you used it at all ??
Mick,Well, he posted the picture didn't he
Great shot! Looks fantastic
Did you get out of the way in time
It is a very striking image. Kind of mystical aura about the subject. So many story possibilities.(Snip!)Hmm... Allentown? I was in Bethlehem in 99 - twice... Stayed at the Hampton inn across 22. Liked the fall stay better than the Feb stay...
Well, this building is in PA steel country...but it is a coal-sifting plant. I am so fascinated with the place I spend whole weekends there!
I drive thru Allentown and Bethlehem on the way to coal country...Frackville and Wilkes-Barre areas are a treasure- trove for shooting. I see photos everywhere I look.
One of the nicest Images I've seen on this site, very striking.
I m new to this, ok I have 24-105 f/4L IS and 24-70 f.2.8L, which one should I sell, I only could keep one lens and want to keep the bestYou need to state what kind of photography you do particularly what kind of light you shoot in. What camera you use.
Thanks for help
