Janet,

These are just excellent. I tried to shoot some song birds this afternoon, and they aren't as easy as you and Mike Mac make it look. :wink:

Regards,

Frank

Thanks all! This guy was singing his heart out and very cooperative.

Mike, you will never see these at your feeders...warblers, as a rule, won't come to feeders, as they don't eat seeds--they eat bugs. That's one reason they migrate...following the insects.

so if you want to shoot warblers you'll have to go hunt them down in the woods and parks ;-)

These are superb Janet! The color in these images are nice and punchy. Did you use the d70?
hi Craig...these are all with the D100...the D70 is my husband's and I don't use it...although I admit today I was thinking how nice it would be to have that 1/500 flash synch. In that last shot I had to stop down much further than I would have liked in order to use the fill-flash--hence the funky background. Eventually I just turned off the flash altogether. Its really hard to use it in bright sun without stopping down!

Yah, iknow what you mean. you still have to go pretty small apertures with 1/500 sec when shooting high luminosity light.
in any event, I like the results you got here. the second one is my favorite. :)
