    This was a first at capturing a bird with my 55-250 IS lens. I had to act fast as these guys were playing around with a couple others. Let me know what you think and how I could improve. Thanks a lot !

    Thank you vivarant. I was about 10 feet away or so. I shot out of my window with the screen off.

    good example of the use of a stabilizer. I dont have it on my 300mm and cant get this clear with it handheld. great shot!

    Stormchase, it is pretty nice having the stabilizer. It helps a lot in some situations. Thank you for the feedback!

    Here's one with a bit more sharpening and border
