Incredible detail and color - What camera did you use?

Thanks Tigerwings, glad you liked them. I used the Canon 20D with the 100-400L IS lens and a Tamron 1.4X TC with these. I also had it on a tripod with the IS turned off for the cardinal and the bluebirds back but the other one was hand held and I think I forgot to turn the IS back on. Therefore it is not quite as sharp as it should have been.

And about the tree limb........I use PS Elements 4. I selected the bird and the tree limb, did a very small amount of USM, then inverted the selection and did some noise reducing on the rest of the photo.

Beautiful Cardinal, Houston and

Welcome back !!!!

I was actually about to send one of those "Anybody seen or heard from Houston?" post

Hi Jake...........I've been extremely busy lately and just haven't had the time to post pictures let alone go out and take some. I think I already told you that I'm working 11 and 12 hr days and then you put in all those honey-doos on top of that so there just ain't much free time left for me. This past Saturday I managed to get off at 3PM and thats howI managed to get these three shots and post them. I liked the Cardinal shot so well I just had to get it posted. I'll be taking a week off beginning April 9 and go down to Florida to my daughters. I am really looking forward to that. Also I'm still planning that far away trip. Don't know where I'll go yet. A cruize doesn't interest me as all that time spent on the water would just be wasted for me (No birds)ha ha. I'll probably fly somewhere so I can have some time at the destination. Of course this wont be next week or next month but pretty soon I hope.

Cheers, Houston
