Just for starters -- its an old shot but most of you will not have seen it.

Used the 85mm f1.4 (Exif included).

Well... I'd think about changing angle, it would change photo quality drastically...

Because new topic was started and I just put some pics to the old one, I'l also put two pics to the new one :P
A bit more rare species, sorry for bad IQ...

I tried to get this in "The next photo will have a raptor.." section, but missed it. Oh well...this should work.





Taken with 7D and beercan wide open, at 6:30 pm in the rain, and shot through cage wire at the Hershey Zoo. Yep, the town where they make the chocolate.

I am just an opportunist bird shooter (if they look nice and are near enough they get clicked) so my specimens aren't as exotic... but they're still birds nonetheless!

Taken with the beercan, of course :-)


cheers,

Since all the topics I was involved in got closed down, I thought I'd post some pictures instead!

These aren't in the same vein as above, but are birds -

Firstly, a couple of orphanned baby wren shots from a while back. I'm involved with a local wildlife hospital (Lower Moss Wood), and a friend does a lot of small animal care:




These were taken hand-held indoors by window light, so struggle for both depth of field and sharpness (the latter largely because of subject movement). Dynax 7D, 800 ASA and Tamron 90/2.8 at f5.6 and 1/30th second. Wouldn't have been possible at all without the antishake!



More recently, in good light outdoors, a juvenile pigeon must have fallen out of a nest in my garden, but seems to be managing OK:


Alpha 100, Minolta 24-85 at 85 end



(I'm not sure the colour balance is correct on these - currently using an unprofiled monitor that looks wrong!)
