Wonderful shots Vinod!! Forum mate Greg Giesing and I are heading over to the Guntersville dam early in the morning to try to get some shots of these guys.

I don't know how long you waited for that first one, but it was certainly worth it. At first, I didn't care for the second, but now it's growing on me. As for the catbird, I'd like to know how you get small birds to pose in the open like that -- I remember the female cardinal.

I didn't remember the TC from your posts on DPR. How do you like that combination?

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the comments. I think the second one is a little unusual because there is nothing around the heron to provide a context, but I liked the reflection. As far as the small birds, I have realized over time that it is useless to go after them. Usually I choose a good spot and wait, they always end up visiting a branch nearby..:roll:.
I have a 1.4 TC and use the 300 f4 almost exclusively with it...I have yet to use the 300mm without the TC. I love that combo.

Vinod,

Nice pictures. Compôsition, exposure and GBH pose all contribute to make the #1 a beautiful, beautiful image. Congratulations for an excellent work.
Thanks Dao...I kind of liked the way the first one turned out too! :)
