...But certainly not as tame as Don's nuthatch!  WOW. But maybe I can change that :(

+1...Good luck Jack.

I once thought about trying to copy Don's bird feeding hand technique with Harry the Heron, but then that long sharp pointed beak made me decide against it. ;D

Thanks Serindidpidy.  No woodpeckers, like NONE!?

Well then that's excuse for me to post another just for you! ;)  My Downy is at least as tame as Harry.

A real Beauty! :)

Hey guys!

I'd like to share my 1st bird portrait on this lovely forum with you.
A little hummingbird, shot in Costa Rica a few weeks ago.

Tech specs:
Canon EOS 70D - EF100-400mm @400mm - 1/400 sec - f/7,1 - ISO 640

I'm curious for your feedback!  ;)

Beautiful photo! Gorgeous color, sharp image and creamy bokeh. I love hummers but we don't have any here in Hawaii.

WOW, again thanks to all for the great shots.  Don, at least you have someone playing in the white stuff.  I'm still emulating Seridipidy with my CarlTN's "common folk" tricked into posing.

However, I now have a bunch of old blankets sewn into a hanging blind suspended from my deck canopy.  Tripod set up, props nicely placed, book in hand reading while sitting on a lawn chair with electric heater at my feet!! ;D

I was happy to get this pose today. 

6D 300 640th F10 ISO 1250

Hi Jack,

Really beautiful close-up. Well done. We don't have woodpeckers here.

I think one of my favourites, we had planned this shot the day before, the Male Leopard was mating so we knew he would be in the area late at night, not hunting, moving slowly as his work was cut out for him mating about every 5 minutes (tough guys these male Leopards), light was from another vehicle placed with it's headlights on the Animal.

We were able to set up quite close to the Animal without spooking it, allowing a series of Images, of which I think this was the best.

1Dx & 300f/2.8 II

AWESOME shot eml58 ;)

It's always nice to see your and Gary photos
