My fig tree was full of birds today, I had no luck with the tiny ones but these big wattle-birds,( large honey eaters )obliged me. These guys are bossy and aggressive with a really grating bark noise to them.

Handheld with 90-300 on Drebel F8, 400 ISO

Wow!!!!

Those are great. Every one of them is sharp as a tack. Looks like I will have to leave the figs on my tree next spring and park myself close by.

These are fantastic shots, Julie! You do good work with that 75-300 lens on your DRebel. I notice that they were shot at ISO 400 and there is little to no noise showing up in the images. Did you run noise reduction software over these pictures?

My favorites: #1,5,6

Way to go!

I agree with everyone else here. Really sharp and great contrast. An
interesting bird as well.
