Ken, I assume you've been using the old trick?
You know, the old fish on your head and then keep very still....

Nice. These little ones are hard to track :)

Thank you everyone!

Actually, this photo was pretty hard to take. This bird takes off fast as lightning. I had to press the shutter button before the bird takes off
What Camera? I have a Canon 5D3 and AF does not work at all for me for birds of that size and speed,
so its all planning and manual settings. As you say they are off in the blink of an eye. I try to anticipate
what they are going to do, thank goodness for high-speed continuous shooting.
Cheers Brian

Nice pics Krob ... you are very lucky to have such beautiful birds in your area (of course it isn't just luck and you are very talented in getting those lovely pics) ... we hardly get to see any birds here, coz there are hardly any trees ... but the desert landscape is slowly changing here and we are getting to see some more birds these days.

Thank you so much Rienz!  I appreciate your kindness.  I do feel quite blessed often times out shooting for the wildlife we have surrounding us here.  Interestingly enough, many locals ask me often, "Where do you see all these birds at?"  I just laugh to myself really, thinking, stop what you're doing, take a look around!  They're everywhere!  :)

It doesn't look to be "from time to time". Keep them coming.

....Just a little bit closer.
I don't think I can squeeze anymore detail out of my equipment unless I climb the tree .
(probably not a good idea)
