Default Hey Greg,

Another great series of images. Glad to see you posting your work again.
My favorite is the last one, the Hummingbird.

Actually, they're all really sharp, wonderfully exposed..well done!

Default .........hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

hey Greg,
.............the sparrows shots are the closest to 'pretty birds' here in my yard. I have not tried the grape jelly yet but doubt it would bring any but more sparrows to the lid.

I consider your flock fortunate that they have you looking after them, the pictures are nice too.

Thanks,

Default Roger's artillery

Zig, you wrote: "I wish I knew what lens he was using", and I found this

Actually, I've been interested in Roger's work for a long while and have followed his web site mentions.

If you've not seen it here is his equip list...no Olympus gear but impressive

Default Thanks, Bob

Great detective work and thanks for taking the time.

Roger certainly has some impressive equipment. I love the photo where he's holding that giant camera and lens combo. I think that would cause me to have to wear a back brace.

He's a very talented photographer as is evidenced by his gallery.

Thanks Zig,

I'm impressed with what everyone around this forum does with their Oly equipment. Its as decent a group that you can find anywhere. I'm glad to be back, and as long as the mods tolerate the disclaimer if I open a post, I'll be content to stick here.

Thanks again.

Greg

Thanks Bob,

The birds are a treat to have around. We started putting out Jelly for the Orioles a few years back. Even though I didn't get a shot of the bright males this year, I have some from last year. They are stunning and the song is worth the jelly expense. The birds go through a jar every other day. I buy the cheapest grape jelly I can find and buy a quantity.

From last year:
