Yayyyy - a new thread!

Mallard Drake, not cropped at all ... right at MFD with my Sigma 300-800mm zoomed all the way in to 800mm. . I didn't give myself any margin for error with this framing because I wanted all the fine feather detail I could possibly get out of my 1D4 sensor. . Now that I am shooting with a 30MP 5D4, I don't have to be so tight all the time.

It is a species that I have never seen before, but I would love to shoot them some day.

It's a Black-throated Sparrow, a resident of desert scrub. They summer in most of Nevada, and I think there are a a few in SE Washington.

Sounds like I've got some research to do then. Ty!

Nice capture, Eric! He surely has himself a good size nightcrawler for lunch.

Beautiful iridescent green color on this close-up mallard head, Tom! You certainly got close to this guy! Nice shot!
