I don't get much chance to get out and take bird pics but here are some recent pics of a western kingbird. He knew I was there but didn't mind getting his picture taken.

I agree! I've always liked shots on rusted barb wire or old, lichen covered fence posts.

Nice set, very sharp! It's good to have enough light to be able to stop down the 100-400L.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks. Yes, it was in full sun. These are cropped and yet they still retained good sharpness. I didn't add any in pp.

Darn tootin' he knew you were there-first, he flexes, then tries to play shy and finally, gives you the profile!;-)a And you certainly took advantage. Very well done, extra sharp, Ed.
