Hooded Mergansers, shot with 60D and Tamron 150-600 at 600mm, 1:1 crop on bottom 2 images

Nice shots, I appreciate the photos as I am thinking about getting the 150-600mm . A friend ordered one sometime ago via B+H but it is backordered last I heard.

The top image is interesting to me - could you share some exif data - ISO, shutter speed, Aperture, how much post processing was done and so on.

Thanks
Jeff

Nice shots everyone.  Seems spring is bringing all of us more opportunities, thank goodness!

A fine photo. Am I correct in assuming that you shot this with your 500 f/4 L plus x2 II TC ?  Is this result typical of how this combination performs usually?  Which of your bodies did you use? Thanks.

Thanks :) Yes, 500L II + 2x II (I'm not sure why I had that mounted when I just got the 2x III, I only realised the difference afterwards). 5D III. Stopped down to f/10 it gives good results I would say, although this shot was in good light and the bird was quite close (maybe 5 metres away).
