Default Our first bird shots

After purchasing my 55-250 IS, my wife and I decided to shoot some birds... of course they are not that good, but it was our first try and the reach is of course limited...

Maybe you like them, maybe not - we'd love to read some C&C from you wildlife guys to see what we can improve next time or if these shots are totally crap

For the first time out shooting birds with a max of 250 you've done a good job. I hope you had fun with the new toy and are happy with the results it produced.

I think 2 and 3 are my faves!!

Wow, what a quick response Mark - thank you very much for your kind words! Yes, I'm really pleased with the results of the 55-250.. now I just need a 430 EX II and my "starter set" is perfect

Glad you like my shots - and the one from my wife (#11)... she catched that little bird in a crazy moment and was really happy that this guy came out in focus

I'm sitting with my leg up due to a bad ankle so spending quite a bit of time online so keeping a good eye on the forum.

#11 does look like the bird forgot how to fly so is just diving off, very funny!!

Glad you are both enjoying the lens, good to share a hobby.
