Western Kingbird, natural perch, taken hand held with my new 600mm f/4 L IS II. This was, if you can believe it, the FIRST shot (or one from the first series of shots) taken with the new lens.  ;D


Very nice jrista. The more I see these pic's, the more I can "justify" my plan to buy a 600mm f4 ;)

Thanks all!

Mr Bean, this was using a 5D MK III w/ a 600 f/4L v1 lens plus a 1.4TC V3.  1/640 : f/9 : ISO 400.  Apologize for not putting the specs up.  I keep forgetting that when I post a linked image it doesn't have the same options for size and EXIF data viewing as seen on my smugmug site.

Steven Kessel - Really like the shots of the Cooper's!

Shag. They look black but are really green. The white in the background is Razorbill and Guillimot crap running down the rocks. My lens got S___ on, I got S___ on and all for a bird picture.

Great shot! Tough to get a good close up shot of a cormorant like that. Sorry about the bird doodoo...but hey, kind of a fact of the birders life, eh? ;P Gotta happen sometime sooner or later...

Wild Puffin staring me out.

Go, go Puffin! Great shot...especially of these birds...they seem to have been having a really tough time the last couple of years, with huge numbers of them washing up on shores dead. Very sad...no one seems to know why yet, but it started last year, and continued on into this year. Hope it stops before they are gone...
