Well, it was pretty tough shooting through all of the branches.

But I was rewarded with a nice little wink...

Nice Magpie, I understand they are really hard to capture in flight.

Quick walk to the canal this afternoon - just passing away 20 minutes or so. Grabbed these two images.

Since this thread is all about photographing birds at less than 200mm, it would be interesting to know which lenses were used and the focal lengths. There are some really good pictures here.

This is a wild turkey taken with the nifty-fifty.. (80mm with the crop).. For some reason it wasn't afraid of me and let me walk right up to it...

Yeah, I removed one which wasn't a duck (it's in the right forum board now).

I've amended the one above to say two, lol... :D
