Lovely pictures Marc, especially the cat. The eyes are terrific.

The acoustic guitar player? That was K200D, ISO 1600 pushed 3/4 of a stop - I guess that works out to around ISO 2600 or so.

M 400/5.6 + f 1.7x AF - "Oregon" Junco

This "Oregon" Dark Eyed Junco was flitting to and from my feeder while I was eating lunch. The "Oregon" refers to the colouration. Identified at Dark-eyed Junco, Identification, All About Birds - Cornell Lab of Ornithology where you can see the colour phases of this energetic little bird.

K10D, ISO 100, 1/60" @ f/8 (f/13.6 effective), SR off, Manfrotto 055B tripod with Manfrotto 0168 ball head. Cropped to 1960X1312 pixels, a little over 50% of the shot. Reduced purple saturation to 0.0 (zero) in Lightroom 2.7 to remove most of the purple fringe, and used a brush stroke to increase the exposure on the visible eye. These guys aren't called "Dark Eyed" Junco for nothing.

Nice work Albert, I imagine he would be a tough little bird to catch. I don't know how Tom G does it

Patience, my son, patience. The problem with my backyard is that it is on the South side of the house, and backed by trees. The light under the tree in the corner that the birds like is atrocious, as you can probably tell from the exposure. I took about a dozen shots while he was there, and this is the single one that was decent. Tom does exactly the same thing, but in an area with better light.

Albert's right Jason.

Light is everything (almost) in photography. That and taking a few hundred bird shots and getting one of two that please if they sit still long enough. I guess that is the patience part. I haven't been out much lately with the old M 400. Albert's inspired me to get out this weekend and see what will sit still long enough to get shot. Birding is not as easy as it was a month or so ago before the leaves came out.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I'm not always so good with patience... To be honest I haven't used the old 400 much lately either, might have to try some birding again soon.

28/2.8

I've had this lens for a year or so, never really got into it, thought mine was a bad copy, etc. Finally gave up on the excuses & forced it onto the camera...you know what? I've found it's a great lens and a good challenge to shoot with.

M 400/5.6 Goes Birding

Hi all,

Had a few moments today after work so off I went to the local pond.

I caught this Robin preening after a bath in the pond.



And this Red Winged Blackbird seemed to be looking for a mate.




Cheers


Tom G

Nice shots. TomG. Those red wing blackbirds are hard to catch sitting still. I don't think I have a single shot that isn't a little blurred.

I'm in the same boat Tom. You'll note a gust of wind ruffled the tail feathers in the shot above.
