Hi Krisbell.
Truly stunning shots, especially like the osprey, fantastic timing especially having the fishes tail in the shot, I bet he was swimming hard!
Thanks for posting.

Cheers Graham.

Female Greater Scaup and male redhead ducks

Crisp - clear pictures of waterfowl usually seen in the distance.  We don't see the Redheads much anymore in these parts. Good to see them. Thanks

Thanks!
They were shot with a 60D and a Tamron 150-600 at f10 and 600mm on Monday at Point Pelee, southernmost point in Canada. There was a large opening in the ice and they were feeding on the far side so I got the camera ready, and sat down partially hidden by the snow and waited. After a while they moved close enough for the pictures.. There is a lot to be said for being patient, still, and quiet. :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

"There is a lot to be said for being patient, still, and quiet."  Good for the birds and the photograher, lowers blood pressure! ;)

I'm so out of it that I posted my first sample chickie using my new old 1D2 in the ice/snow thread! :-[
I get so worked up about such a minor purchase imagine what a 1DX would do! ;)

Anyway, in tramping outside for an hour in the grass and snow (+8 C) carrying this beast with 300 X2, I became aware of how out of shape the winter has made me.  Nothing to shoot but a squirrel so out on the deck to my prop for this shot with the 1D2.  The sensor is very dirty otherwise it seems this small investment of $250 is worth it to help judge a future purchase.  What a pitiful LCD though - hard to believe - 2004.

Some pretty awesome shots!  The angle you got the osprey at makes that shot even more unique!

I love the second one ... It looks great with the wind and the snow.

Yesterday I spotted red-winged blackbirds for the first time this spring. Hopefully will have a chance to shoot some soon. Meanwhile a couple of pictures from last year.

Thanks Click.  Can't believe how impatient I am for spring birds to start arriving (like others here).  Also to experience if the 1.3 crop reach is worth considering relative to a used 1D4 purchase, assuming prices continue downward.  I've read of folk wishing for a new 1D with 1.3 sensor so it seems there were fans.  Lenses sure are a better investment!

The male is really well done. Getting black colored birds done right is not easy. Check out the enlarged image.
