These are not the best but ... for ISO 10000 I'm very pleased.  I was after waxwings but had to give a few minutes to this plain Jane since she was so friendly.

Hi Folks.
So many great shots since my last comment, I have been trying to get out a bit more and spend less time here while the weather is nice, plenty of time for forums when it's crap weather!
Here is the one result of more time out, I've been trying to get a nice shot of Rooks, Crows, Ravens or Jackdaws for a while, Monday I was killing some time waiting for a customer and took my 40D and 70-300 (non L, I didn't have anything better with me!) to the cliff top.
This one sat eying me cautiously and twitching every time I moved a bit closer, and boy was it windy there, hence the feathers over his / her crop being spread open!
It looks to me like the lens body combo front focus a bit and no AFMA.


Hi Valvebounce,
Whilst in Juneau last year I managed to get some raven images on the quayside, when I saw this one I couldn't resist the crop showing only the upper body, what made it for me was the complimentary background.

Yes, HB, the background and the excellent exposure and light make the shot. Nice!

I love ravens...smartest birds in the world.  I lived in the mountains and watched them do some uncannily intelligent things.

This is my raven shot.  I an not fond of the processing, so I am looking at different things to do with it.  But, I do love the look in his eye...
