What lens are you using here? Great shots. How far away were you?

Wonderful photos - as always! Two questions: 1.) did you run these through a noise filter, and, 2.)did you use a flash? I can't remember what camera you are using. I have the Canon EOS 20D and feel that I do get alot of noise if I shoot with an ISO of 400 or higher if the exposure isn't just perfect.

Mountain Hawk, I used the Tamron 200-500 for these and was between 15 and 30 feet away for these shots. Linda, yes, I ran these through noise reduction software and I did use fill flash with my Rebel XT. If I can run them through noise reduction software and retain a good amount of detail I'm pretty happy with the usefulness of iso 800.

Can I ask you what Noise Reduction software you are using? I've used two different ones (one of which is from Photoshop CS2) and haven't been real pleased with either one. You obviously have a winner!

Hi Linda, I don't mind at all. I've used the Imagenomic Noiseware plug-inwith photoshop Elements for quite a while now. I find it allows me too maintain a lot of detail in my bird shots. Thanks, Jake.
