Had the day off today so I went out looking for something to point my new Tamron 200-500 at. I found this Willow tit along with a bunch of other smaller birds. Both shots are heavily cropped, it's kinda hard to sneak up on a bird when you're moving across snow wearing dark clothes.

@ants: Welcome to the "...Birds" thread! The A700+70-300G is a very good combination for the subject matter. It appears that you were focused on the tree rather than the bird and that your shutter speed was a bit slow. You may want to try center spot AF (and other settings detailed in Frankman's http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=29447&PID=308214#308214. I look forward to seeing more of your Estonian birds.

@TBMike: Nice capture with the egg in the nest!

@Okapi: I like the lighting on #1. A closer crop might be interesting.

@Blind Boy: Congratulations on the new lens! Nice detail on the black AND white plumage. What focal length were you using?

Cheers... Brian

Thanks! Those are 500 mm f6.3. They're about 50% crops though so the full image is quite a bit "wider".

I thought they might have been uncropped because of the OOF white object in the forground of both shots. I did the same thing when I got my 70-300G (still loving it by the way). I was so thrilled with it that I took pictures of EVERYTHING. I'm glad there wasn't a thread for photos of refrigerator magnets 'cause I would have posted them .

Cheers (and hope to see more)... Brian

@ Pavel : nice and sharp.

@ BROGUEIRA : I love these "environmental portraits" very much, especially in this one where all the colors match so nicely and there's no distracting background. Well done.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Playing around in the back yard with my A700 & 300F4 with the 1.4x Tc attached caught this little fellow trying to hide from me.
