Hello there. Hope you like. I had to kill the quality of some of them because of the filesize limit :(.
Thanks.

Amazing series of shoots, macro an tele images are sharp and with lovely colors and compositions. Really great job Electrolyte :cool2:

Thank you. The last one if a "far macro", it was taken zoomed to maximum and were cropped to almost 100% (that's why it's not that sharp).

Very interesting birds, never seen anything like them. Where are you located to find these in the wild? Really great shots, all of them.

Thank you very much! :)

Nice work Catalex. What kind of adjustment did you apply?

It's very hard to get pictures of birds here because there are a lot of people who kill them (with guns, pellet guns, traps, slingshots, etc.) so they are VERY skittish, also, it's not a true "rural" area, so there are cars horning, dogs barking, people screaming (where i live people scream frequently :( ), they shoot fireworks (firecrackers) because of sports almost everyday, it's a real pandemonium 24/7 :). And the only birds species that are used to that intensive amount of noise are the pidgeons, sparrows and vultures.

Latin America. But some birds are common in US also (SW region). The kiskadees (on the other post) are common in Texas i think.
