  2. great shots Mike, wait till you get the big birds in front of you. I cant wait to see those shots. Very nice. 4 more days!
     
  3. Excellent images Mike. The first woodpecker is an amazing shot and I love how you have chosen to tilt the angle of the image. They are all fine images.

    Mike, all I can says is WOW. The thing is, I seem to be saying this a lot when I see your shots.... :D I hope you can teach some of your techniques for getting such super sharp shots to the rest of us at Merritt next week. :p :p

    I cant wait either getting real close. see you soon
     
  7. Mike, I'm wordless. Could you please share a bit of your secrets with us. How in heaven you managed to get such close to those birds and capture them in the natural environment (I mean in trees not on birdfeeders).

    Thanks I have three feeders in my front yard with lots of natural perching spots and some I created by placing branches close by for the birds to perch on there way in and out from the feeders. Patience plays a lot and getting to know the timing of the birds and there habits. Patience is a virtue I guess
     
  12. Thanks Harry look forward to meeting you soon
     
  13. Thanks Phillip the light that morning was so nice there is like a half hour window when it is very nice
     
  14. Thanks Rory coming from you that is a fantastic compliment
     
  15. A warm thank for sharing the secret. Keep posting those enjoyable pictures.
     
  16. Hate to sound like a broken record, but you have mastered this type of photography, Mike. Every shot superb.

    Looking forward to meeting you in Fla. later this week...

    See you soon looking forward to it.
