Just curious, but how close are you to the birds when you shoot?

As close as I can, but this one was maybe 25 yards away.

My wife saw the bad hair day shot and raved over it. I don't blame her.

Yep, bad hair day is a very good shot, expecially considering you had a TC on top of that zoom. The wasp is a tad OOF, but the others are nice.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Yes I am starting to get some good results using the TC. I have to thank Dawg for that, was looking at his settings for the bigma, so upped the sharpness to +2 the contrast to +1 and lowered the saturation to -1, works for me.

The day I took these, I traveled around 20 miles on bumpy dirt birm roads, took about 200 pictures of which one turned out great, several were so so and a whole bunch of not very good ones. In a whole day of shooting, if I get one picture I am proud of, it was a good day of shooting.

Well you got several good ones here. I shoot around 200 every day and I seldom get more than 1 or 2 really great photos. But the average is going up day by day!! When I get as good as you I'll nearly be there!
