Emperor Chicks, you don't need a long Lens with these Guys, shot with 70-200 f/2.8 V1, you can generally shoot them with a wide angle they get so close.
Love the Emporer Chicks EML!  What a terriffic image!

Love this image Rev!  What a pleasure and thrill it must have been for this capture!  Awesome!

I was thrilled to be able to capture this shot..a White-tailed Kite.  Not a common bird to start with and his haunting eyes against the white feathers make this raptor somewhat eerie.

Enjoy

A bird out in my backyard... that actually let me take photos of it without the need for a telephoto lens (but this one is with my 70-200 f/4 IS).  I could actually use my 24-70 at times but I ended up feeling i wanted a tighter fit and didn't want to scare him off.

How cool Brandon!  Very nicely done!

Nonac..love that cardinal shot..excellent !

Here's my first capture of a Phainopepla (<say that 5x fast :)


Phainopepla by Revup67, on Flickr

What was cool about this event is a fellow birder had his iPhone.  we quickly ID'd the bird, looked him up on Birdseye and started the bird call.  The bird actually began responding and creating a conversation of sorts with the iPhone.  He was intrigued enough so he also flew closer to our location so we could get up close shots..it was incredible to witness this as I had not before.
Not only can I not say Phainopepla 5 times, I can hardly say it one!  I've never seen this bird before, I need too though!  Really nice Rev!
