    Nice shot but it does look like your focus was more on the wing than the eye.

    Yeah, the problem with the focus was.... the bird was very far away. I had to use all of my 300mm to get this close. I have a hard time focusing when the object is that far.

    Thanks for the c&c

    I think that this is very nice photo.It is not easy to "catch" a bird.
    I hope I will be able to take such nice photos too.I just started to photograph birds.

    Thanks. I think its my best shot so far in my young photography journey. The focus on the yes isnt perfect but I am still learning. I think I probably could of changed the settings to get better depth of field and maybe it would of came out better.

    So far I am proudest of this pic.

    You should be proud:)
    What kind of lenses you used?
    I am going to buy new lenses /I have Canon 450D and Canon 70-300mm IS USM lenses./and I am thinking about Sigma 150-500mm or Sigma 50-500mm,and I still don`t know which choose.
    Greetings
