Below are 7 shots of birds taken in evening light at the Harrier location, just as the sun was going down. The Harrier is gone, so I focused on evening light. The 300 IS without extenders was used for all shots. Focus here is not on action but on the activity of light on small birds. I photographed in landscape areas that were touched by the sunset, such as peaks of bushes and shrubbery:

The lovely Wren






The soft little Warbler



The Elusive Catbird who decided to come out of the hedges tonight for a brief photo op







A sparrow in the bush



One more of a sunflower field on a hill where I shot some of these, shot just before leaving for the evening as the light had peaked and was leaving me behind

Spectacular, Norm. BTW, you must have been just about on the branches with some of these guys - amazing.

Hey Norm, fantastic shots as usual, however, something TOTALLY new from Norm - A Landscape !!!!



I love the facial expression on the wren in #2 - thanks for keeping us "on the edge"

Thanks for looking in on these everyone. I appreciate the comments very much.

Jake, yes, this is one of the few landscape shots that I've taken. I simply couldn't resist this field of sunflowers. In mid-afternoon it's nice but in evening light it's simply beautiful. Unfortunately, the shot just can't capture the essence, I need to practice my landscape shooting.
