Absolutly beautiful shots of beautiful birds. They seemed to be willing subjects. Question, when you shot these did you underexpose to get the right light on the birds?

Thanks Joe. I did underexpose these by -.3 ev. I usually end up overexposing most shots most times, but the light seemed ok for being under by a bit. It varies on conditions....cheers...Don

Thanks Jeff, Squirl.

Squirl, I was about 20- 25' away using my FA*300 f4.5 with a 1.4 tc on it. I ran a NR on these, although the noise wasn't all that bad, but thought I'd smoothen them up a bit. The light was tough, and I had to underexpose a bit, so ran the NR...Don
