I've never been able to get into the flash for birds, I know some really like it, I shoot everything without. I have a blind but for the birds in my yard I need nothing.

You guys are fast edit with the second image !!

Another from yesterday. It's been almost six weeks since one of these has visited.
Sorry can't remember the name, just woke up.

O Dave ,.... Cap

Hopefully, the big sigma can be repaired, and that the camera doesn't have any hidden damage.
Wasn't a good day... Went out fishing last evening and the steering linkage on my boat fell apart !
Should have stayed in bed yesterday ! :lol:

Well, all this talk about cameras dropping must have jinxed me ! Mine fell off the top of my tripod today, from full height, onto pavement. vmad
I think my 7dii is ok, but my Sigma 150-600 is definitely not ok. Already on its way to Sigma for hopeful repair.

Shooz I really hate to hear that. Fingers crossed for you. As stumbly as I'm getting just a matter of time for me.
