I love these waxwings too,. they are one of my favorite birds.. and yesterdays occurance was nothing short of miraculous to me.. I never get the chance to get so close and in such nice light.. (early evening/late afternoon with sun to my back)
Yes, very happy with the new lens.
I was so enthralled with actually shooting,. I never got around to messing about with T-cons and the like for "test" purposes.
..bless your heart I believe that's the first time you've ever posted something approaching a compliment regarding my photos.. I am moved beyond words.. (no sarcasm..I really mean that)
Yes, sold the Sigma here to a fellow regular,. it is in good hands!
I intend to write up a small review/comparison.. but in a nutshell I have to say that having a chance to shoot the Canon 500mm has only re-inforced my enthusiasm for the Sigma 500mm.. the two lenses compare much more closely than most would admit/believe.

Thanks for your comments, much appreciated. I too was excited about the setting
I could not tell you what type of tree it was,. but the tiny buds/blossoms were apperently a favorite for the Waxwings.. as they just sat around gorging themselves happily! The tree was "busy" and it was very hard to get a shot wihtout a lot of branches in the way.. so I moved around a lot.
Most of the shots were taken.. yes HANDHELD!Image Stabilization
was is a god send in a case like this!cfcRebel,.
