Some shots from today. Hunting season is on and birds are all over or nowhere to be found.
Belted Kingfisher did not care at all, as long as there is a fish to catch he or she is happy. This one was playing game with me.
As soon as I got to decent shooting distance it took off and landed in nearby tree...repeated few times and finally It let me take some shots

K-3 with SMC A 400mm f/5.6



At home American Goldfinch had a blast at my feeders.

A curious Pika. Sigma 500 4.5 on K3, handheld. Hard to set up a tripod on a talus slope.

Yes.
I like it when you can see the bird within it's natural habitat weeds and all.


I agree.

Very deep wood Hummer shot. I think I may have been near her nest.
I quickly got my shot and then left her to mother business.

Love the P-51 shot. Next to the P-47, it's my all time favorite warbird.

Sort of a mug shot of a Blue Jay.
A PP challenge just to see what I could get out of that old DL's 6mp sensor.
This was taken 16 years ago - think of all the improvements in sensors since then.
It's also been cropped a bit as well...

Red-breasted Nuthatch.
This file was a disaster. Took a lot of PP to get it at least presentable .
Cloned out a lot of clutter in the background and cropped.

Lovely. The softness is very effective considering the subject.
