Got a couple of robin shots in the backyard with my short A300mm . They are after the fruits all over the trees. Dawg probably has a lot more variety of birds in his backyard.

Hi Daniel,

Some very good work with the A*300.

We've got tons of Robins around here, but I just can't seem to get any as good as these of the juveniles, not that I don't try. . .

You will have no trouble with your longer prime lens if you see them. Should be this time of the year until mid Sept.

I think I still have chance to bolster the image with a K20D. I am still holding up the urge to upgrade. But my DL & K100D are still working 100% :idea: I need to break one of them

Excellent shots, and thanks for the information about the spotted breasts being the sign of the juveniles.

Tim, Harriet & Don,

I hardly did any pp because of the film mentality. I did sharpen all the images above early Saturday though. Hope they do not look that digital after the sharpening though? I am happy to capture the short period when they still have the spsot breast.

Hey Daniel,
Is that what they call a Chinaberry tree? Don't know if that's the real name for them, my ex had one in the front yard. It did attract a lot of birds!:-)
