Hey Don, the light may have been lousy for some things but, it really helped you bring out the detail in those blackbirds. In blazing sun it's really tough to photograph those jet black bodies. Your shots have terrific detail. Nice job.

Thanks Steve, Jeff, Roger. Flat light is better for shooting black, but ISO levels soar unfortunately. A nice f/2.8 200mm would help. Pentax is apparently coming out with one later this year. It would be a big help in this climate.....cheers.....Don

Don, i sympathize entirely! i've had to deal with the gray drippies most of this spring, except for a couple of nice days last weekend. RWBBs are much easier to expose in flat light, although the reds don't pop like they do on brighter days. i find that even with a Canon, with some of the best high-ISO performance going, at ISO 800 i still need to touch the pics up a bit with NeatImage to get that silky bokeh...

Hi Rocky. Ya, the gray drippies...lol...good description. Well we've sure had 'em this year! Maybe we'll luck out with a sunnier spring, and a nice blue skied summer before the drippies return in the fall......cheers........Don
