Great birding shots. I think my favorites are the african crane and the flamingo. The crane "head piece" was very well exposed. However for me the flamingo takes the cake. The different layers of feathers with different hues really came out well on that shot. Awesome job! I might need to start looking into a 300 prime lens at this rate!

Harriet -- It's all gone -- we had thirteen inches the night before my K10 was delivered at my local shop. I had to wait until the plows went through before I could pick it up. We've had a lot of warm weather and rain in the past two weeks, so even the salt is washed away now. When I was a kid I remember running out and playing in the rain on one unusually warm January day -- it was that unusual -- but now it's almost expected.

I'm a fan of the way the four seasons express themselves here, but having a brand new camera makes me appreciate this break in the weather.:-)

The signature bird for the gardens I was wandering in. There are quite a few of them and they share their island with the crane. While the crane was very inquisitive, the flamingos could have cared less. And do birds ever quit preening? I found it just about impossible to get a picture of one with their head up.
OMG, the flamingo pic is great. i have one almost EXACTLY! like. if i remember i'll post it manana

The detail in all these is stunning , the birds are beatiful.
I hope you keep on "trying your hand" at birding so we can enjoy more .

Those are great sharp shots. The Quail are hard to get close to even though when I am out West they seem to be all over the place, nice shots.

A very well used day, I must say. All shots are very fine, but the crane gets extra points for putting a smile on my face as well.

Very nice shots mtngal. Love the Hooded Merganser. These little guys don't like getting too close in our area. That duck you weren't sure about is indeed a female Wood Duck. Beautiful little gals they are....cheers.......Don
