What do you do to these birds, John? They look crankier than your avatar!

Superb shot, Rob. I pulled it up to 100% and the detail you have captured (the texture around the eye, for example) and depth of field are perfect. Just the bees' knees, ankles and hips!

BTW, I am assuming this is another from your Costa Rica trip, so how many species of birds did you manage to shoot during the trip?

forum: Birds

Only today, after all my years of membership of this forum, I have found the advantage of clicking the "glasses" icon to bring up shots to 100%, and this is the sort of photo quality I aspire to, as you can count the feathers, and exposure and DOF are perfect <sigh>.

Thanks mate, I'll take that as a compliment.
All I do is wag my finger at them.


Football is a very simple game. Twenty-two players chase a ball and Germany always win.

I was going to post something up today but after looking at this page I decided
not to lower the standards of the neighborhood. Just some really awesome shots.

Do you shoot with a Better Beamer or some such device, Jeff? You are up in the Great White North and I can't for the life of me figure out how you can shoot at 1/2000 with ISO 125 and get away with it. I can't seem to get any lower than 1600 ISO 9 months of the year here in Oregon.

In addtion to foxes, deer and mustelids, are you a sun whisperer too? :)

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.

NO Sam.. I'm dead set against using a flash of any sort. And I absolutely hate the sun when it comes to wildlife and birds. Nothing will put more noise in my images than the sun. The light here is even lower on the horizon. I like to shoot manual but my broken front wheel makes it doubly hard to run that shutter. but I have to look at the darn viewfinder screen twice as much to see the meter. I use the meter and adjust to the situation as best as my brain can figure. Every image I shoot is just the 7DII, 100-400LII and me ...rarely a tripod. but I'm always on my knee's

I'm hoping to whisper up something cool this coming week... fingers crossed

You're too modest, Jeff, but I'll save you any more blushes!
