Since this thread started off as bird portraits, here's a family portrait.

Duck shots added too for the heck of it.

5D3 and 300mm 2.8 IS

The lighting in the "family portrait" is exquisite.  Very intimate

Thanks for the comment. I have to thank nature for the lighting, I just stood there and pressed a button!

The original image was a crop of the image below as I thought it maybe worked better.

Regards.

Eastern Spine Bill (male). A couple of them were flitting through my garden this afternoon. Finally managed to get a few clear pic's as they were feeding in the Correa bush. While it has the look of a flash lit pic, no, the winter sun happened to pop out for 10min :)

Stunning, both the cropped and un-cropped versions. I love a good BW :)

Hiked to a remote point - captured an amazing range of birds. Here are two.
Martha's Vineyard -  60D with a 100-400mm
American Oystercatcher and a Black Skimmer.  ( the Skimmer breeding range is expanding Northward it seems.)

Nice pic's. The Skimmer in flight looks great :)
