Thanks all for the looking and th3e nice comments. You've probably figured out I like watching and shooting birds.
Serafin, the specifics of this shot are f6.3 @ 1/500, ISO 100, spot focus, spot metering, noise red. low, all others standard, program manual. One of the most important things is having good light and keeping the sun on your shoulders and the bird in front of you. I then shoot in manual, set the aperture at 5.6 or 6.3 (try other settings and see what you like best), adjust the shutter speed until the image looks a bit dark in the LCD (try to keep the shutter speed to at least 1/250 but better if 1/400 or above), take a few shots and review them to see how the settings are working. If the lighting does not permit the above setti8ngs then make small adjustments until you reach an acceptable setting. If conditions are to bad I cannot get a good shot no matter what I try.
I forgot to mention, on this shot and most of my bird shots I am using TCON-17. If I were able to ger closer to the birds I would not use the TC.
