Had my camera next to me while drinking coffee in our backyard this morning when she shows up.  Female Costa's Hummingbird.

Awesome. I really like your shot.

Me too! Love the bright colors and creamy bokeh. :)

Serendipidy, it's hard to imagine a more detailed BCNH - WOW. 

FWIW the last two shots I posted are American Redstart female.

Jack

Thanks, Jack. I know almost nothing about identifying N. Am. birds, but I spent 15 minutes Googling grey and yellow birds of Alberta after I read your post. The best I could match was the American Redstart or some type of warbler. I thought there was too much red in the Redstart (I didn't think about a female though), so I didn't hazard a guess. :)

serendipidy, those were from the tern's initial dive impact a second before the shot.  Shooting silent mode on the 5D III so my FPS during action sequences is less than optimal.

Thanks..it makes the photo look more interesting,imho.

Thanks, click and ERHP.

Bobstew...nice photo of a beautiful bird.

ERHP...well timed shot. What are those water drops rising from the surface? Was it raining?

Thanks for your kind words Alan :)

Brazilian cardinal takes a leak on my neighbors aluminum fence post, hops down, and then demands a bread handout :)

Thanks for posting these nice shots.  You have your work cut out learning the camera.  I have had mine over a year and am still learning

A few shots of some wild ducks in the drainage ditch next to my house using my just purchased 5D3 (which I don't know how to use yet ;D). 100-400mmL @400, f/8 handheld.

Click, rpt, and Scott...thanks. With just a hundred shots, I can already tell it's better than my 7D.

Did my first ever attempt at a sports event today, keep in mind, it's all a hobby and just for fun. If you like cycling you might have heard of Thor Hushovd. He's a local here. Concentrated on him today as I knew he would win.. All shots at f2.0 with 200 f2 L.


Great shots.  Nice job Sir!

+1..wow!

Jrista, Jack and serendipity
That image was not entered into a competition but merely presented to a website that takes 800x600 reduced size images, on which I have many. Two weeks ago I got within 6 metres of a kingfisher and got several shots where you can see every feather.  Here is a close up of a head, cropped from the full image.

Superb! Very sharp with lots of detail. (Not too smooth and not too much noise removed ;D)
