  2. Great shots. How far away were you? All the birds and wildlife where I love are so shy it is really hard work trying to get close enough.

    2nd to last is an excellent composition!

    All those super tight shots are good, but you can't beat the wider ones for a more complete composition. Good stuff! :Happy:

  5. well I'll tell you, at times they walk right past me so I can get from inches to at this time, 20-40 ft away. I actually have to step back to get more than just a head shot in. It's a problem for me, but I've learned to deal with it...
  6. These are beauties - wish we had Sandhill Cranes around here...
