Got these photos wandering around a small lake near home.

All shots 20D, 100-400L, 1.4X SP

A couple catbird photos
ISO 400, 504mm, f/9, 1/200sec


ISO 800, 504mm, f/9, 1/160sec


A couple of a little green heron
ISO 800, 504mm, f/9, 1/1600sec


ISO 800, 504mm, f/9, 1/2000sec


A portrait shot of a tree swallow (this gal let me get real close, even after she buzzed me
a couple of times. Thought she was going to take my hat off.)
ISO 400, 504mm, f/8, 1/250sec


A yellow warbler
ISO 800, 504mm, f/9, 1/1600sec


And finally, something I don't see very often, and that is a hummingbird that is
perched. This is a pretty extreme crop.
ISO 800, 504mm, f/9, 1/1000sec

Really nice pictures!
My favorites are the first one and the yellow warbler.
And of course hummingbird, because It's always pleasure to see some exotic birds who doesn't live here in Europe. :-)

Cheers!

Thanks everyone for taking the time to view the photos and for your comments.

Dennis - Both the catbirds and the warblers are tough as they tend to spend most
of their time in the bushes. I got lucky with this catbird, he would come out of a
bush to a perch, call a while then jump back into the bush. He did this several times
before flying off. As for the warbler, there were several jumping out of one bush then
diving into another. I waited quite some time before one actually stopped out in the
open, for a moment.
