    Very nice Joe. I would shoot those kinds of birdies, but I can't get that close without scaring them away.... :?

    Don't Patriots eat Eagles? I think Yankees eat Cardinals, or so I'm told.

    Thanks guys, these Cardinals hang around all winter and are the most colorful birds in the bare tree winter backdrop. Even Mike would be able to get close to them (with a 200-400mm VR in hand).

    Nice unibomber shot on your avatar Joe ...

    I've got one a little sharper if you want, I'll email it to you if you want an update...btw, did you get the check in the mail o.k.? I figure you did, as I haven't seen you at my door with a shotgun :lol:

    Nice to see a new place to get together away from all the dpr bs lately...

    Dennis,

    You noticed the avatar, eh? Since it was an inside joke, I figured only you and Mike Worley would get it. And yes, I would like your version. Yep, I got the check and have it in the "D2x fund". Can't wait!

    Nice Joe.

    One day I'll see a Cardinal for real. It'd be a thrill just to see one, let alone photograph one.

    Hi Joe,
    I see you got the Cardinals with your 200-400VR. Did you get them handheld or with a tripod. Just curious because the pictures are so sharp.. You must have used a tripod. I have that lens and it's my favorite.

    Good job! This summer in Michigan, where I go in the summer months, I find plenty of Cardinals and Hummingbirds. I hope to get some good pictures of smaller birds then.

    Thanks,

    Gaye
     
  15. Hi Joe - your Cardinals are drop dead gorgeous! Good stuff.

    Now here is a real bird (from today) :wink: No hard feelings :lol:

    original.
