First time I've went out to shoot birds since last spring. Lighting was not goodwhen I was out there, so a bit of levelsadjustment was required. Used my blind for the first time and I think I'm going to like it... once I get the lighting perfected. Definitely some potential there.



He moved his head, so the focus is a little off on this one.

The lighting, background color and subject sharpness are superb. What camera/lens did you use? Nice pics.

Thanks everyone. The background is the field of sedgegrass that's growing in the distance behind my house.

Mhansen, I have a Minolta Maxxum 7D. But the lens is the kit lens (75-300mm) from my previous Maxxum 5. It's not an exceptional lens, but with my set up it seems to work well for the birds.

Hi Gracie - I agree with the others - They are all good, [I think that most people who shoot birds will agree that to get ANY bird shot IS good], however No.I is a superb shot :!:
