Cute visitors, No2 without the pole is the one I like the best.

Ya know... I hadn't noticed the poll until it was mentioned. I like the second one because of the detail and the seed.

Nice shots. And yes, I think they were on to you.

These ones demonstrate both your talent and the lens. Very sharp, detailed, nice exposure and color saturation. Good work, alady.

WOW lady - these are wonderful - the details and colors are just great!

I think I'm going to have to get a bird feeder so maybe some of these will come to my yard! :idea:

Thanks for looking, these are all that are hanging around right now:roll:They are always sitting in my front yard waiting for me to fill the feeder. My Husband always jokes about knowing our house by the doves nesting in the front yard.

G'day Aladyforty,



Great shots, and so sharp. Do you mind telling me what kind of camera you use and what software you used to edit the images. I couldn't find any info under the Exif. Never-the-less great photos of our local pest.

Regards

Ron

Thanks again to alady for the reply. It's always interesting to find out what everyone is using to get such great photos. I feel so limited with a 3 x zoom, but what the heck, I sometimes get lucky.

regards

Ron

I used to get some very reasonable shots with my G3 (3x zoom) and a add on telephoto lens which took it up to an 8x. If your camera has these extras it would be worth purchasing.:-)
