Derek, this has been a lot of trial and error but I think I have it worked out except for the background.
F-16, ISO 200, SS-180, 3 flashes set to 1/16 power and a lot of frustration trying to focus on these amazingly fast birds.
132-3 .
200

A few from today. Blue winged teal, a lesser Yellowlegs and Yellow warbler. The warbler was with a flash extender.

Some photos from the DA* 300mm f4 + HD 1.4x TC... (420mm) (crossposted from the HD TC club)


All Handheld... All a f5.6 (wide open)




















I am still impressed by the results ...

Some other shots from the FA* 250-600mm (no TC... tomorrow, I will test the HD TC with it !)

Tried a new background today and think I hate it. Tried to find a green sheet to no avail, sometimes it sucks living in a small town.
Superb work on the Hummers though Travis. Looks like you've cracked that aspect - though agree, a camo bg isn't the best

Agree--very impressive. I'm envious of the Oriole--they're rare here (except at Camden Yards ;~)

Excellent shooting everyone! A couple from today. K3, DA* 300 and HD 1.4X TC handheld. First time seeing one of these for me - Common Yellowthroat.

Loons, Trillium, and song sparrow with meal. All with 1.4 TC DA*300. Flash extender.





And now for some gear porn. The Metz isn't weather proof, so I suspect I'm going to have to replace it some day.

Another one with the Nestar.

Look at meeeee!



Actually I would be interested to see what some of you more expert LR practitioners can do with this pic. if you're interested in having a play I have put the original dng here. I'm a bit of a neophyte with LR3.6.

An Audubon warbler. I'm getting to like this flash extender. Not sure if I have the white balance right, and maybe need to notch down the exposure, but I see possibilities. The stop that the 1.4 TC takes has been frustrating, especially when the weather is overcast.
