Just took a few shots. Given the weather and dim light, they are ok.

All done under iso 800 & with A300mmF4.

Hi Daniel,

Some very nice work.

I really like the bluejay shots. I've been trying for two years to get something more than a something that could be mistaken for a hot pixel in the middle of a tree.

That last one has me stumped though -- how'd you guys get them to dress up in a skwirl suit? . . .:-) . . .those clever Canadians!! Next thing you'll be getting them to play hockey. . .

Scott


Joking aside -- there has been a severe depletion in the number of bluejays in my area -- house finches too -- I've heard rumors of a virus that has hurt the populations of these two species especially in this area.

Daniel,

I really like the Blue Jay shots, they are hard to get close to around here, but there are quite a few around. The Hairy Woodpecker is nice also along with the Chickadee, which we also have alot of at the feeder even though we don't have any snow.

The squirrel looks like he spent too much time in the sun and got his fur bleached out.

Thanks for sharing, they are great.

Tom

Your blue jays are much prettier than the scrub jays around here. Love your other pictures.

However, that last one reminds me of one I took at lunch time. I think my squirrel is fatter than yours! In fact, I think this is the fattest squirrel I've ever seen (wonder if its a she?).

Nice birding shots! Really like the blue hues. The image was color saturated just right. Well done. What lens did you use btw?

Great photos, Daniel. To my eye, the last set looks a little noisier than the first, but more well composed, with the whole bird in the picture and looking at the viewer. Keep posting, it's interesting to see you explore the long end after the Zenitar marvellous ones. (But keep them coming as well, I find them very inspireing.)

Both 135mm shots

I went back to the same conservation area and took a couple of shots more to polish up whatever I left off. I have found out that I need to have 1/500s to freeze the action. Still working on it

Daniel
