Well I think I posted a picture of a humming bird like 5 years ago with my old PS Fuji. But since getting my hands on decent gear I have yet to shoot birds. Recently a friend via POTN lent me his 100-400. That lens ROCKS! I'm quite surprised how sharp, and accurate it is. I was also pretty amazing about how well the IS stood up. I thought it's IS was "outdated". Anyways, here are a few snaps of a gorgeous bird at Mizumoto Koen here in Tokyo.

Let me know what you think!

This was shot at Ueno koen, in Tokyo. We had out little POTN get together there. Good times.

Nope, that is another week point of mine. I very new to anything bird related. One of the parks I was at did have King Fishers, but I was able to get a good shot of them.

I love the shots Andy. You did a superb job with all three of them. The first looks a lot like our Great Blue Heron but it's not. Some of the markings are different and so are the colors. The last one is definitely a Sparrow but which one? Interesting stuff in the far east. Glad you found your way here.

Well I will make a run to the park where I shot the wannabe Heron. I will find the proper translation as well :)

I seriously considering buying a longer lens...But that will be another topic lol! the 100-400 was just so much fun. I had the 70-200 but that would not work for this application for sure.
