NHL,

this week's set of bird shots were excellent.. great colors, sharpness, and exposure on them all.. the flash setup is it just an extender on your 500 super? you almost have me interested in finding some birds..

No extender, although I would recommend one the next time... Theses birds are quite small and I'm not far out. All theses images were with flash:

-> Experiment with the lighting, my bet is you'll get much more contrast and saturation when the flash is used (espcially in shadowed areas with strong back lit background)

There have been some nice bird photos for sure. The Kingbird has some awsome colors.

Time to fess up (unless I have missed you telling) If I read the location coordinates right, those types of birds would not normally be in that area ....I don't think???

i had a chance to use my flash on some birds today.. got a nice portrait of a kingfisher and a female bobwhite..

well, they looked good on my lcd.. got home, brand new card was corrupted....

anyways, thanks for the inspiration, once i use mygood card, i am sure it should be fun to experiment with..
