    Super images, Phillip. Tack sharp, good poses and backgrounds, and, most important, eye level. I'm curious about how close you were, what lens you used on what camera body, and how much if any you cropped.

    Very nice Phillip. I like them all but the last one is my favorite.

  9. Hi Gordon between 4m and 10m or an old money 13 to about 35 feet, they are the original size in the frame all that i do is take a a4 crop from the original 14 inch size.

    I used my D2x with my sigma 800f5.6 hsm Prime and the ISO's range from 200 to 640 the last images is ISO 640 which was underexposed by one-stop and recovered in nikon capture. I did have my 300 f2.8 with me but left it in the car which was a mistake as the bird came within 1 m of the hide I was sitting in.


    Ps I use a 36 mm extension tube for the really close ones.
