Great shot! How close were you? Did you have a telephoto lens added on? I love these guys, but unfortunately, they have already flown south of here for the winter.

I had a 1+ closeup lens on my FZ1 and a Canon TL55 teleconverter attached to the 1+ closeup lens. I was probably 4 feet from the bird. Thanks for your comment!

Nicer shot, very good detail. I am going to have to try to figure out that combo of lenses you used.

I would love to get a set-up like this! Where did you purchase the teleconverter and close-up lens? Is there a certain model/brand I should be looking for? I have a tcon-14B telephoto lens, but I'm not sure if that's the same sort of lens that your are. Thanks!

The tcon 14B will work fine. I also use a 1+ closeup with an Olympus A200or aTCON 17 at times. The 1+ closeup is the type that comes three to a package (1+, 2+, 4+)for around $40. The closeup and teleconverter combination works real well for taking pics of butterflies also - it lets you stand further back from the butterfly so you don't startle them.

Thanks so much for the info! I think I will definately have to look into getting some of those. Do they all work with any type of digital camera that you can add a lens onto?
