sounds like a fighter. He is a real bully and pushes out the small guys from the feeders. But he's also very trusting of me and my silent camera :) . He has some unusual shades of brown and those eyes that look color coordinated with the rest of him

Absolutely wonderful shots. i love the feather detail. You really have a way of getting close to the birds.


thanks Luis

AF accuracy from the Z6 is not like any DSLR I have ever used. I think I need to AF adjust my DSLRs:)
Randy, most DSLR / Lens combinations benefit from AF adjustment. The flange to sensor distance and the AF module placement is not that accurately controlled in modern cameras. If it were the cameras would cost much more so the AF adjust is there to make up for all these little differences. Luckily, in the Z series the AF is on the chip so this problem goes away. I don't have any lens that is sharpest at the AF adjustment of zero setting. All of them are sharper with an adjustment. My 500Pf needs a +3, not much, but I can see the difference if you pixel peep. My 105 macro has a -20 which is obvious even just looking at an image on the screen.

Cheers,
alexis and Georgie Beagle

One of my favorite visitors. Great detail.
thanks Mike
Why is it a bully? Does it want all the food or all the photos taken of it?
food pig, pushes out small birds
Nice ones buddy. These guys are to say the least comical.
thanks Rick, they are crazy
A real beauty, nicely done.
thanks Louie

Beautiful captures, Randy. Razor sharp!
thanks Phil
Simply amazing detail. Love the color saturation as well.
thanks Gordon
Nice set, Randy. Quite a beautiful bird when you can see it in this level of detail. Seen in real time with the naked eye just looks like another LBB.
thanks Dan, they're pretty good posers to but on the perch they push me to fit them in the frame, they are a big bird for around here
