Here's a few taken with the 600mm IS II F4 on a 5D Mark III. All shots hand held without color modificationsEnjoy!Two Cactus Wrens - note fruit juice (prickly pears from cactus) around their bill. Their call is most unique and easy to ID as it sounds like a car having a tough time starting up on a cold morning. Since 1931, they have been the Arizona State bird. All shots taken in southern California.Two Cactus Wrens (11878) by Revup67, on Flickr"Ridin' The December Sky at 5:05" by Revup67, on FlickrAmerican Kestrel (11848) by Revup67, on FlickrTownsend's Warbler (11679) by Revup67, on FlickrNote rows of "narrowly" drilled holes and protruding sap which attracts insects as well as Rufous Hummingbirds (dependent on season and regional location). The Sapsucker returns for its dinner (sap and insects) while they cling to the sap. Red-breasted Sapsucker (11710) by Revup67, on FlickrThe Ruby-crowned Kinglet (male) with its crowned raised. The bird is next to impossible to find (though of Least Concern)..tiny and well camouflaged within the branches seeking aphids, caterpillars and the like. The timing has to be precise as its crown is typically flattened and shows as sort of a red speck on its cap.Ruby-crowned Kinglet (male) 11612 by Revup67, on FlickrClearly, you are as patient and persistent as you are skilled! Your Ruby Crowed Kinglet is beautiful! "next to impossible" is putting it mildly: often I can only hear them, and see flitting among the higher branches. You've got it all: a nice pose, sharp and well-focused, and a creamy backdrop. The other images are excellent as well.
