1Dx + 200-400, cropped & WB only.

Jim
A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.

This is cropped to its current size, no scaling; I think it will be difficult indeed mailing this lens back on Monday!

Jim, I'm glad I'm not you!  If it provides half the satisfaction of my 300 2.8 II I wouldn't part with it.  There is always some way to scrimp and get by!!

Finally getting a chance to look back at some woodpecker shots.  Thought the dual eyelid was pretty cool.  Unfortunately when eyelids are closing the head is moving and critical focus is tough (with a 6D anyway).

Some great close-up shots! Nevertheless the 6D is a wonderful camera.

1Dx + 200-400, cropped & WB only.

Jim

I've shot the local variant of the magpie, and the results are nowhere as revealing as yours, which manage to demonstrate that bluish metallic sheen -- very nice.

PS: Might as well post something...a bird I shot last week
