First posted on the Oly DSLR, Just wondered what you wildlife birders thought??

April sunshine may not mean much to some of you but up here on the upper left coast, it's "Great!"

Smiling happy people in work and in the shops......and it brought the boids out. I caught a few of thisguy on my E500 with the old 40-150 at 150mm. f4.5 @ 1/500. Hand held. I had fun and machine gunned it, put the camera on action mode, spot focus and justshot plenty of photos. Got some more (Lots)in flight but I like these.

He...or she? Looked happy and tired last week, they came in on a sleet storm but my wife had their sugar fix waiting for them.







THE END!

Thanks guys. 'She' had a really metalic gold chest at times when she'd turn and face me. Some kind of display.

I'm about 50 north and west of Seattle, on a 'drive over the bridge' island. About an hour from Canada.



This one shows part of the gold display. I'll have to work on that. She has some sort of bug or spider on her nib. I cloned it out on the other shots.



The last shows how sloppy she is getting Zoom juice on her throat...:-)
