Default Backyard Birds w/ New 7D

I thought I'd start work with my new Canon 7D shooting the birds on my back deck feeder. Considering that these were all shot with the Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS, through a kitchen window, then cropped, I'm very happy with the quality and my 7D!

We'll start with the Dark-Eyed Junco...


Then my selection of woodpeckers (Downy and Northern Flicker), three species of Jay (Western Scrub, Steller's, and Blue), then a House Finch and Mountain Chickadee.

A very nice series. Well done.

Just one little hint. If you preceed your URL link with [img] and follow it with [/img]

It will inbed the picture right into your post eliminating the need for the viewer to click on the link.

example below. don't use the spaces, I included them so you could see the format.

Just FYI. I liked your shots.
Cheers,
Steve

Well, apparently I'm screwing something up, because that doesn't seem to work. I've done this before here, but it's been a while. I'll keep trying...

It's an easy fix. Go to the photo you want to include then right click on it, properties, then copy the url of the photo so for example your first one has the link only of the photo as http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2525/...6b47096e24.jpg this is not page that includes the photo but rather the photo itself.

Now armed with the copied url click the insert image icon and paste the url into the dialogue box and press OK. That should be it. I've done it with your first photo to be sure it works from your page.

Hey, whaddya know, I finally got it right. It took a few twists and turns but they're there. If I told you what I did for living, you'd have a very, very good laugh.

Love the 7D! I'm hoping Santa brings me a nice telephoto--otherwise I'll be splurging big time in January (probably the 70-200mm f4 IS and a 1.4x, or a 70-300mm IS, or I could go big-time and just snag the 100-400mm, but I'm not sure I can't pay the spousal guilt points that one will cost me)

Not bad for shooting through a window. Nice variety of birds you have there! You' re sure to have a lot more fun once Santa delivers the long lens. Regards, Dan
