    I really like the close-ups as they are great shots. But, I do have one complaint and it's not about the photos... just the lack of details. You see, I can admire a photo but I cannot learn from your abilities if you don't share the details ;)

    Here's my questions. How close were you? What settings did you use? What lens/body did you use? Get the idea?

    Don't mean to be so nosy or to come off sounding harsh (I hope I didn't) but if you could post at least the distance you were approximately in each and the equipment I'd really, really appreciate it. :mrgreen:

    TIA.

    This is one excellent series. Five and eight are the standouts to me, and damn do they stand out. Excellent, excellent series. I can't really pick out any weak shots in the series, nor weak aspects to any of them. Seriously awesome work.

    Here you go Crazy_Dragonlady... IT was a very windy day so used ISO 400 for most shots to avoid any blur.

    Great shots. What the heck is that Cormorant in #3 eating? Gotta love the 600mm (assuming thats what you used).

    Thank you very much for that info Eric. BTW I really love those shots! Now that I know what you used to get them I can get a better idea of what I need to know to achieve similar results.... doubt they'd ever be as good as your's though! :sexywink:

    I always thought that when you use the converter you tend to get blurry photos? Apparently I thought wrong. Those are some VERY clear shots but I see that you weren't using a zoom but a prime lens? I also assume you used a tripod... I know I'd have to so there wouldn't be any shake. :D

    Thanks again.
