these are some of the first shots from my new toy... it's clear i have a learning curve to climb here, but i thought these came out acceptably well for a first attempt. all shot with Sigma 80-400, mostly at 400mm...

Awesome! What camera body were you shooting with before getting the 30D?

Hmm, my sentiments exactly! :roll:

Getting beyond that little sentiment, these are absolutely wonderful shots for a 2nd, a 3rd, or more tries beyond that. Very nice!

The Red-winged Blackbird is the best of the bunch but the Tree Swallow in flight is pretty impressive. How much of a crop were each of these images?

i used a Panasonic FZ20 - wonderful camera, but it has some limitations. it's far too good a camera to set aside entirely, but now that i have the Canon, i probably won't use the FZ near as much...

these were center crops, from 3500x2330 to about 1800x1200, then resized to fit the forum. other than the cropping and resizing, there was no PP needed...
