  1. Well, I took both of these shots on the same shoot <grin>. The first, of the eagle, is full frame...

    This one is a 50% crop. He is my new front yard buddy and follows me around the garden. His Fight/Flight range is 5 ft.

    Great shots! The sparrow detail is amazing.
     
  11. And great weather to boot! I'm sure you Seattle folks are getting the same beautiful weather Jim.

    I took some shots with my 500/4 + TC14 + tripod and 300VR + TC17 handheld. I got great results from both but the 300VR shots were better. It is an amazing lens.
     
  12. Absolutely fantastic- Glad you shared these photos.
     
  13. Beautiful images both. Lovely details...
