    I went back out to the same spot where i got the first shot. It didnt take long for the little guy to come back and greet me again. This time i had my 90mm tamron thats a bit more clear. Altho the humidity was like 101 percent and my glass kept fogging i finally got this shot.
    90mm 1/80 f/11 iso800. I had it on AV setting to try to keep clearity and didnt realize the iso was so high. thought it came out quiet better!
    I also had to go through photobucket because flicker didnt let me upload such a big file. please concider quality ...

    Nice details on the feathers. Way to stick with it under the conditions! Looks like a nice lens to have in the bag.

    Wow, definately a great shot. I like the framing, and you nailed the focus and exposure.

    nice shot! the palm-type leaves give the shot a nice backdrop, i think.

    Looks like it was taken at a zoo in a planned capture. Nice job!

    Looks good to me.

    However, a published bird photographer friend tells me never crop so the tail points to a corner.

    Thats a good tip about the tail. It is uncropped, could it be too close? I think thats why i picked this one to post. I have a nice wildlife preserve next to my neighborhood and there are lots of photo ops there. I was able to get pretty close on this one.
