Everyone shoots birds with really long glass and teleconverters. Show some photos you have with a combined focal distance of 200mm (on a crop body) or less. So...FF 300 or less will be accepted as well.

This was at 200 f/4

Good thread.

Here a couple from my window, when I newly had my 60D & 70-200mm f4.

(Both images cropped and downsized to fit the forum)

^ ^ ^ very nice. NVM, for someone across the atlantic pond: what kind is it? Is it common?

These are about my last pre-DSLR shots with the Canon G5 (FF-equivalent 150mm):

Super shot of a Jay N.V.M. :)

Good idea for a thread which I'd like to contribute to as I use my 70-200mm all the time for close birds. Three recent shots with that lens:
