Default Re: Your very first bird photograph

I have a fear of birds so photographing them is like an extreme sport to me. These were the day I got my Tamron lens. I've yet to take a nice sharp picture with it.

Great idea for a thread. I got my 55-250 (returned it a week later) on Sept. 6, 2011, and went down to the beach to test it out. Took some bird photos and I was hooked. Here are a couple from that day.

Well, this is not my first ever as that was back in my Kodachrome days. All of those were lost in an apartment building fire or I'd scan one. It is sad because there were some decent shots in that collection. This is the first I can find in the digital files. It is of Pheasant walking across the road out front of our home. The photo was made using a Nikon 5700 through the glass of the storm door.
