    A few of my bird shots

    Here's three of my best bird shots, CC most welcome. I use the Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR2 (except for the last one-- #3). It's not the best lens. I was more impressed when I bought the lens earlier this year, but I find it's too soft, especially at 300mm.

    Honestly, I have no idea the names or species of birds. I've just seen these birds on walks and hikes.

    LOl I know what ya mean I was there not to long ago. If you keep shooting birds you find them quite addicting... but better than any drug habit.

    1 Great Blue Heron
    2 Bohemian Waxwing
    3 European Starling (nuisance bird introduced to United States from Europe)

    Pretty good shots for not even knowing what you are aiming at....

    Bird photography can be very addictive & I would recommend picking up a book or two and start learning. There are a few books on my shelf, but the first one I always find myself going to is Sibley's...I tend to use the others for confirmation. if it's species that are close.

    Amazon.com: The Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America (9780679451204): David Allen Sibley, Rick Cech: Books

    http://www.amazon.com/Sibley-Guide-B...1365746&sr=8-1


    The first one is titled "Eastern North America", but it covers most of N America since it deals with a great deal of migrating birds as well.

    "Shooting" birds can be addictive! My passion is landscape and I even told a friend (years ago), that if I ever bought a big lens.....shoot me. Shortly after that I bought my 300mm f/4!

    BTW, I set up a backyard 'studio' and blind: Wildlife & Nature FAQ

    Now I need to buy the 500mm!
