That’s great. They are so damn skittish -one of the hardest birds I have found to photograph!

NOW....imagine how a rookie at this stuff feels...:lol:

Travis when I started back into camera's back a while ago I concentrated on getting rid of the one thing that was killing my images, Motion blur.. It's our number one enemy of details and sharpness. I guess I just found a way to run the thing that improves on my images.

So post away.. everyone should.

NIce! I heard you've got bulbuls in SoCal. Is this one of the resident population, or did you take this in Asia?

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.

Nope, that's a Buzzard.
This a hawk from this afternoon. Just wish I could have gotten a lot closer.
