Its such a great time at the moment to be out and about photographing our feathered friends, the little things are so hungry that they are almost taking food from your hand!.

I`m a bit limited with the Tamron 70-300 though, ideally i could do with the Sigma 150-500 but I cant think of a good excuse to wave under my wifes nose to get her sympathy (all suggestions welcome) especially after just lashing out on the K5 and the Siggy 10-20!.

Anyway, here is a few from this mornings outing.

#1 Blue tit


#2 Coal tit


#3 Male Chaffinch


#4 Female Chaffinch


# Sunlit Swan

All lovely shots Cliff. I often like to see the ones at a shorter focal length so there is more composition in the shot.

If you keep taking shots as good as these with the 70-300 how will you justify the 150 - 500 to your wife
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Nice set Cliff, nothing wrong with using a 300 for birds, you just have to get closer

As for the wife, I think you may have problems convincing her your lenses are too short, as no doubt when buying the 10-20 you were saying they were too long

Another from yesterday, not the best of heron shots but I liked the captured effect of the frozen water as the bird flew past, Haven't a clue why it appears as a diagonal line, something to do with a sharp drop off of DOF perhaps?, the ice looked pretty uniform!. Any ideas?
