WOW, again thanks to all for the great shots.  Don, at least you have someone playing in the white stuff.  I'm still emulating Seridipidy with my CarlTN's "common folk" tricked into posing.

However, I now have a bunch of old blankets sewn into a hanging blind suspended from my deck canopy.  Tripod set up, props nicely placed, book in hand reading while sitting on a lawn chair with electric heater at my feet!! ;D

I was happy to get this pose today.

Hi Jack,

Really beautiful close-up. Well done. We don't have woodpeckers here.

Hey guys!

I'd like to share my 1st bird portrait on this lovely forum with you.
A little hummingbird, shot in Costa Rica a few weeks ago.

Tech specs:
Canon EOS 70D - EF100-400mm @400mm - 1/400 sec - f/7,1 - ISO 640

I'm curious for your feedback!  ;)

Beautiful photo! Gorgeous color, sharp image and creamy bokeh. I love hummers but we don't have any here in Hawaii.

Thanks Serindidpidy.  No woodpeckers, like NONE!?

Well then that's excuse for me to post another just for you! ;)  My Downy is at least as tame as Harry.

Bottom's up!  I have a grand total of three birds I can post but that'll be changing soon - I HOPE.

+1...Good luck Jack.

I once thought about trying to copy Don's bird feeding hand technique with Harry the Heron, but then that long sharp pointed beak made me decide against it. ;D

It may be only three at the moment, but you sure do get close!
