    Went to the Fox Island Nature peserve yesterday, and I only took to the observation area my 70-200+TC 1.4. This was not nearly enough lens. Shot with D2x, handheld, and are but a tiny fraction of the full frame. Thought I'd show them anyway, even though they're not up to the very high boards' standards, or even my own. They all 100% & or close to 100% crops.

    Male Phebe:

    43856360.

    Male Grosbeak:

    43856358.

    43856357.

    Some type of Woodpecker (I am told)

    43856359.
     
  2. You mean to tell me you have that 200-400 and you dont use it? Better send it on down here for some exercise and use. 8)

    I blame it on sheer laziness

    What can I say, other than the car was parked VERY far away, and I was too lazy to go back for it. Yes, I actually had it in my car with me!

  5. Hi the 4th one looks like a canyon wren, perhaps they would look better with less noise reduction I am not trying to be uncomplimentary but sometimes it is better to leave the noise in the image.

    Steve,

    I just checked out your site. Is that your African Serval? Is it a pet? It's spectacular -- and so are the photos. I wouldn't want to get bitten or scratched by a cat that size!

    You're right, it is a Wren, & the Serval is

    my neighbor's son's, not mine. It's been hand raised since a newborn and is reasonably docile. She puts up with me sticking my lens in her face, and only occasionally hisses at me :shock: , so I can't fault her. She's cool, isn't she?
