Got out yesterday before work looking for waterfowl and had no luck. Decided to go to a friends house where she has feeders. It sounded like there was 1000's of birds making a racket. Mostly blackbirds and grackles. Anyway, I took quite a few shots for a while not realizing I was at f/11 and it seemed like my bursts were a bit slower than usual. They were. Some shots were at 1/50 second. All these pics were handheld with my 20D 500mm & 1.4x TC & iso200. IS really helped!!!! Plus, i think my hands were a bit steadier than usual. used NR levels USM cropped & resized.

1. Robin on a wire 1/50 f/11 I was really surprised it came out as "good" as it did. It really broke the 1/focal length rule

4. Female brown-headed cowbird at the feeder. I'm not one for feeder pics but, it was the only place I could get a shot. 1/250 f/5.6 (I finally realized I was at f/11)

Dennis, that Mourning Dove shot is great!! I've done that same thing before with the focal length rule... I always mess around while I'm in the blind and do it on purpose on a tripod if my subject is fairly still. No processing costs, just a handy delete button to take care of blurry pics. :-)

The second Robin and the Dove turned out very well. Nice job.
