Real nice poses here Houston. The last one is excellent and use of light is exceptional; even a beautiful little catch-light in the eye; no trace to me of anything but rich ambient light (if you used flash on this one it's well hidden).

I like everything about the cardinal except the slight blurring in the head and the green blur in the lower right corner. Chickadee has a great pose and nice feather definition; I really likethe titmouseand have no suggestions on improvement since everything looks great to me; the finch looks over-sharpened or FMed or something in that vein (can't pinpoint exactly what it is but it's in the hard unnatural texture of the bird).

Again, the last one is superb and the titmouse is excellent. Great job! You sure have come a long way over the past month or so.

Great shots Houston. The last 2 really are starting to pop. Great definition. Can you share with us how you got these? Looks like some warmer weather. That would be nice around here.

These might be some of your best.

Thanks for your nice comments Golfer. And yes it is warming up now. I don't know what to tell you about how I got these other than what I put on the post. I use the Drebel, Sigma 135-400 lens and Tamron 1.4x tc and a tripod. I have a new software call FocusMagic that I used on these and I think it works pretty good.
