    I managed to sneak in an hour at the Marsh on Sunday morning. Had some nice sun, but a lot of people there scaring the birds. :grumpy:

    This guy just would not sit still. Got myself dizzy chasing him around the tree

    Thanks Mohain. I appreciate your comments.
    Im only using a 70-300. I dont have image stabilizer, so I sometimes use the nearest tree for support.:lol:

    Cool. 2 and 3 are super sharp and fantastic colours. What creature is it, it's not a squirrel is it? You've got some great results from that lens :thumbup:

    Dude i was at a marsh today (also a new cem) with my 70-300 and i got two things, jack and s**t ... and jacks left town. (<from evil dead haha), seriously tho spent about 2 hours there just chasing birds up and down the marsh bank... think i got like 2 out of 150.... so you did real well here, excellent shots, great light on the little feller eating a nut and that woodpecker is a sweet one, how did you get so close?... i found a green woodpecker today.... got within about 300yards!...he was gone... history... maybe im just too clumsy :lol:

    Great shots Carl, you did great. You caught the Crackle in perfect light to bring out the colours.

    Thank you so much for your awesome comments and replies. I really appreciate it.
    Angel/Jtl. Cause Im limited with equipment...patience is my best friend. I will just sit/stand against a tree and wait. Got my lottery ticket for this weekend...still want a "real" lens.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Nice work Carl. It is a beauty of a chipmunk shot. If there was someone scaring birds, my guess is Eric.
