Spotted Towhee

1D Mk IV with 70-300L & 1.4x TC
Magnificent sir! ... didn't know that the 70-300 L takes the 1.4x TC ... is that a  Kenko TC or Canon?


Must be the Kenko. The 70-300L does not support the Canon ext.

Great Blue Heron

Wow, great shot!  At first this appears backlit, but on closer look it appears to be just shy of edge-on (ie. sun almost right in the heron's face).  Did you use any fill, or is it all natural light?  The "dark side" looks clean and sharp.

Thanks very much! This was all natural light no fill flash. The heron was lit by upper right, back, sunset lighting. It was shot as a jpeg with minimal post processing.
Glad you like it!

Phil L,
I love the heron photo, too.  Great lighting, just not some lighting anyone gets all the time.  Great catch on light and subject!
Beautiful!

Here are the pics I promised on the feeder/prop.  Private email is fine for specifics or if it seems appropriate, perhaps here in this thread, although it is for bird portraits - right.  Not a problem for me either way.

Boy Don, you got that right.  He must have been listening to David Suzuki on global warming. ;)
