    I went back out this afternoon to shoot Ospreys and Harriers, but there was a stiff East wind blowing right off the ocean and nothing was moving.

    I went to the Heron rookery but they were all hunkered down setting on eggs to keep them warm from the cold.

    I went to shoot some more swallow pictures...but there were no swallows.

    I did however find these beauties as the sun was setting over the hill behind me....

    Lovely light Jim and you've taken great advantage. Very nice bluebirds.
     
  3. Really like #2. good stuff. There is a nest near by based on the bugs they are carrying, did you see where that was?

    That's some seriously nice shots, the soooo smooth backgrounds really isolates those birds nicely. I surprised the depth of field is so shallow for f/8, it works incredibley well but is this common on such a long telephoto?

    Keep posting, I really like what you can do!
