Nice sharp image, Canonuser! The two little purple flowers give this shot an added touch.

Nice green-winged teal capture, Ken! I love to shoot the same camera, lens, and TC combination as you do. I use it the majority of the time. Ain't if nice?:-)

Thanks Mike. Yes, it’s a great combination - very versatile. I’m a little bit tempted by the 100-500, but mainly for the weight savings from shedding the adapter and t/c.

I use the 100-400 more often than the 100-500, but they are both fine pieces of glass.

Terrific, Mark! The colors this common bird possesses, always amazes me. You captured them quite nicely.

Thanks very much Mike.

Great capture, Bill! Certainly a tasty looking meal. :p


Beautifully composed, sharp image of this little darling, Richard. The shot has such a 3D look to it, due to the excellent buttery background.


Marvelous capture of these two swallows, Vassilis! The great background makes them stand out so nicely.


These two shots are quite interesting, Paul. I'm somewhat surprised to see mallards escorting the mother and young of another species. Here is my theory of what I think is happening: The two mallards are both males, and since they appear to be a couple, and cannot have young of their own, have adopted the female wood duck and her young as their family. They are now the protectors of this mother and her babies. I do not see the male wood duck (father of the ducklings), and I'm wondering if the two mallards simply took over the role of caring for the hen wood ducks and her young. I've seen this happen with geese before, but not with ducks.


What a nice, sharp, crisp close-up image this is, fotoi! The colors are spot on!


What a wonderful shot of these two sandhill's, Shortaction! That 800mm lens certainly produces great images (plus the R6 of course :-)).


Very appealing shot, Jack! Nice work!


Well Tom...now you have a house full of house finches!:-) Nice capture.


Very nice capture of this big fellow, PineholeR5! He's definitely giving you a thorough looking over.

Wow...what a pretty robin shot, Jimmy! Nicely composed.


Very nice shots of this rare visitor, Steve!


Very attractive, beautifully composed shot, BirdsofBC!


Wonderful, tack sharp image of this Anna's hummingbird, Rich!


Wonderful shot, Terry...especially shooting at a magnification of 1,600mm (that's taking into account the 1.6 crop factor)!


Nice one, sixtygp...it kinda looks like he's, made himself into a tripod! :p


Gorgeous shot, fotoi! The lighting is beautiful and so is the color!

I think you nailed-it Mike.
That's the same observation I believe was witnessed by us too.

Many thanks Mike. Your generous comments are a real encouragement.

I was on the phone at the time and a number of them along with a few Thornbills turned up and I grabbed my camera and proceeded one handed. Was surprised how they turned out

a couple from tonight.
A Brown Falcon was at top of a gum tree surveying the scene and then I found its mate on the ground with perhaps a rabbit.
It was unperturbed by my presence, but I was on the other side of the fence. It looked at me then continued to eat unabated.

Love finding them in the natural woods, as opposed to a residential yard
