As of late I have been busier than a one armed paper hanger, but I finally got a
chance to get out and get some pics. It was a pretty cloudy day and although I don't
like using flash, I pretty much needed it. I just had to get out and get my "photo fix".

All shots 20D, 100-400L, Tamron 1.4X SP, 420 EX flash, +2/3 FEC, 1/250sec,
f/11, 510mm.







And this guy would not come out on the side of the weeds I was on, so I had to
shot through the weeds to get him.

Really nice shots of a surprisingly difficult bird to photograph, and the Hummingbird is the wonderful bonus

I'm afraid Woodmeister, you're going to have to learn the put things into proper perpective when it comes to photography: Food, rent, and other luxuries, are simply going to have to be abandoned, so that you can post more stuff like this...

Good job Woodmeister. Very nice captures. I'm having bad weather down here also. Its hurricane season down here and looks like it will be a while before I see the sun much anymore.

Regards

Very nice shots Woodmeister. I love the Waxwings. We only get them for a few weeks out of the year down here in NC. They love the berrys on our Bradford Pears trees. Woody

I liked the feathers on waxwings considering 1.4xTC on 100-400L. The hummingbird coming out of weeds is real nice bonus.

Were these on tripod? Also did you use better beamer, seems like not considering the +ve FEC.

Really nice shots of the waxwing, woodmeister, and I love that little hummer head popping out of the green.

PS - your eye catchlight is perfectly dead center on a few of these, which I'm assuming is the flash light. Have you considered cloning it out and reinserting a catchlight in a more natural area, around 11 or 2 oclock on the eye?
