Little birdies from the porch...

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Jim Strathearn, May 10, 2011.

  1. It's been quite a while since I posted any pics here. Heck - it's been quite a while since I photographed little birdies! I forgot how relaxing it is and have been shooting them again lately. Here are a few - all with the Nikon D2H, Nikon 500mm f/4 P (wide open), Nikon TC16a:

    Nice work Jim. But you should throw away that old lens. I could probably pay you shipping if you wanted to send it south.:smile::smile:
     
  3. LOL! I almost sold it to get a 70-200 VR lens...
     
  4. These are pretty darn nice. Good you came to your senses in re that 500.....:wink:

    Well, you've certainly shown what "old" equipment can do. These are crisp and beautiful. The light in all of them is really nice.
     
  10. Wow! Beautiful crisp shots with your old lens. You must have great eyes too;)
