I realize this is a poor picture technically. I was shooting through my den window, which is very dirty. However, I thought it worth a try because the bluejay looked so dishevelled, mangy and comical. It had just disported itself in our bird bath and was fluffing up its feathers to dry off.

Wow! Wonderful shots over the last dozen pages, everyone! Truly. Too many to call out explicitly, but there are quite a number of talented bird photographers here.

I've not posted in a while as the summers here in Dubai are horrid with the mercury hitting the high 40's every day, so I messed around with the AFMA settings for my 150-500, I popped out to the polo club and managed a few shots.

2. Green Ringneck Parakeet
3. A family of Hoopoe

Thanks Click, yeah I like the one on the right shouting out the orders, that's why I called them a family instead of a group, that has to be the female on the right  ;D

Coppersmith Barbet,(Megalaima haemacephala), by alabang, on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

Hi Jock.
Very nice shot, but shouldn't it be in the shot from behind gallery?  ;D
It does appear to be posed for you.
Nicely caught.

Cheers Graham.

Just picked up a 300mm F4L with the 1.4 Extender III.
Just trying to figure out how to use it!
Here is my first attempt at a proper bird shot.
