Menace...I was scrolling down the screen looking at all the great bird images when I found this guy looking me straight in the eye!  Great shot, thanks for posting it.

I saved it for my iPad lock screen...here's a screen grab.  Hope you don't mind.

Take care,

You are most welcome North.

And no I don't mind at all - in fact I feel honoured :)

I have spent the last couple of days in Hong Kong and have just arrived in Shanghai, where G**gl* is inaccessible. I put the Tamron 150-600mm on a 5DIII through its paces under conditions where I could get really close. Here is a selection from a morning's shooting. All have been reduced to 1200 px width for uploading, each with a 100% crop so you can see the original.

The processing for all has been the same. Taken in RAW, processed in DxO with the only changes done is noise reduction using PRIME and adjusting exposure (no sharpening). The exported jpegs were cropped in PS and sharpened using USM at 100% with 0.9-2 px radius.

I don't know the names of most so please help me by identifying them (I can't G**gle*, remember).

All are hand held. The first is: Focal length = 350mm, f/6.3, iso 640, 1/320 s

5D III, EOS-M, Powershot SX50, 300/2.8 II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, 70-200/4 IS, 24-105, 15-85, 100-400 II, Sigma 10-20, EOS-M, 18-55, f/2 22.
