Spotting for elk = finding Bluebirds

I went out a day early just to see how the country was looking after a couple of storms had gone thru. One the way to the high country I found these two characters about 1/4 mile apart.

These are done the lazy way from the car.





And about a quarter mile later

They sure are pretty, while I have heard they are occasional visitors here, I have never seen one. Very nice.

Jerry thanks for looking and commenting.
All I can tell you about them is they are very skittish and just don't stay in one place very long when someone is in the area.

Nice birds. I'm curious about the zoom range: do you use only the FZ30, or the Nikon TCE17 also? I checked it at BHphoto and the rear mount diameter is said to be "Proprietary", how did you attach it?

Thanks.

I used a ring inbetween the camera and the Nikon TCE17. If my memory is right it was called a step down ring.

So it is a step-down ring from "proprietary" to 55mm?

I think you are correct. I looked at my camera and all the step down ring says is Hoya 55 mm. Sorry but I don't remember the sie of the teleconverter threads.

This is where I think I bought it.
