Well done on all of them Dave. I have been trying to get a good shot of waxwings for some time but so far they have not cooperated.

With all you "happy birders", it's another dimension of imagery and another language to go with it.

Amazing sharp shots.

That Pelican is great. Blow it up to 8X10 and frame it....hang it up on the wall. It's that good. Colour, lighting, composition...wonderful. The Pelican seems to be using it's rear foo as a paddle to turn.

# 6...excellent also.

That 300 mm is a pretty impressive lens. I wonder how it compares to my 55-300 mm fully zoomed. Some great shots, particularly the pelican!
