Love the pictures, especially the bird. The squirrel looks very well fed, or else he's scrunched up so much he looks that way.

Thanks still playing with my new lens.

The birds at the feeder are pretty messy, so the squirrels just sit underneath and snack on the scraps.

Tom, great shot of the squirrel! They look so nice from a distance. Can't see all the fleas! The chickadee shot is really well done. Looks like she posed for you!

No. 1 looks just a tad over sharpened but no. 2 is spot on...Good work!

Both look like very sharp shots Tom. What new lens, is this the Sigma 300mm f/2.8?

Dawg, they were both shot in PEF at the same time and sharpened exactly the same so I think it is the Oak tree bark that is making it look over sharpened..

Tim, yes it is the Sigma 300 2.8....

Looking again you are probably right Tom....The bark has small whitish speckles that made it seem too sharpened. Love the color in these! What are you feeding the squirrels up there...That ones a Hoss!

Hi Tom,

Looks like the Sigma is going to produce for you. How is it at wider apertures?
