Just tried out the new 90-300 lens on the camera today. Found it quite difficult to get these shots but it was freehand, no tripod.

What was in the background on that first shot? Getting good smooth non-distracting backgrounds is hard to do.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The pose in the second one is really nice. I've always been a fan of the head across the body shots. The B&W works well for me on the last one (remindes me of a winter scene) but I miss the coloration of the bird in the one before it. But its in my nature... I'm a bird watcher as well, and I really love the subtle colors in birds (maybe that's why I love cedar waxings?)

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"That is a very cute bird... I wish we got them here (USA.)

Nice shots of a neat looking little bird.

I really like the second one. My eye just likes the brighter looking pictures and the color it brings out.

Keep em coming!

I dont have the third in color, sorry. It looked pretty much the same as the first so I changed it but forgot to save the original.
