    Well...my neighbors tenant finally had her kids. I have not had a chance to get close enough to get any good pics and last night was another challange. The sun was almost gone, so I had little light to work with. I used my 70-300mm with a 2x teleconverter, and had to do manual focus. I could not use a tripod and rested the camera on a railing. To defuse the harsh onboard flash, I drapped a small piece of tissue over it. I am hoping to get more pics tonight of Mama feeding them.

    Sorry JonMikal...not baby crows... :+)

    These are great! Have rarely seen close-ups of bird chicks this close up!
    What are they going to be once they are grown?
    I agree, their "hairstyle" is quite something else! :D

    anyway, great shots, all of them..the last is like the mad blue bird shot thats so popular...he looks ticked off at you...."wait til momma gets home,dude..."

    Thank you Photo gal. I have been watching these guys grow up in my neighbors front porch....really cool to see.

    That is true Jon. Between dodging the security guard at Mount Pleasant, and keepin another eye out for a crow, I will take anything right now. Thank you my friend.

    Very nice Chiller. That second shot is great, two chicks waiting for their parent to come back and feed them. DOF is bang on.
