FInally able to get close to a GBH over the weekend. BG wasn't good but took whatever I could before he flew away.

Him coming to me (for a change)

Very nice work, especially on the close-ups. Nice and clear.

You must be very excited to have gotten these. The heron is such a majectic bird.

Just their size makes them impressive, not to mention the great look they have.

Nice work on all these, you captured the color well with good detail.

Looks like you had a good weekend my friend,

These are the best of the bunch. I know it's going to cost me money but what's your setup so I can start saving.:lol:

I don't know, I think the background kind of fits for shots of GBH's. The colors certainly compliment the bird. Maybe a little busy but hey, the pictues of the bird are so clear I don't really notice the background.
Another fine job,
Steve

You got some kinda birdin' talent, Bobbyz.

I especially like the first and last in the series :-)

I bet they would look great side by side on your wall!

Steve - I typed a response but it seems it got lost. I am using canon's 100-400L with 10D. 100-400L is quite flexible and is cheaper (relative to big guns like 500F4, 600F4 etc) way to start in wildlife/bird shots. Main contenders are canon's 300F IS with 1.4xTC, canon's 400F5.6 prime and Sigma 50-500F6.3. I would get 20D I were you but it is more expensive than the 10D. Rebel is no good (IMHO) as it has too many restrictions.
