    Haven't taken my new lens out of the yard yet...don't know what's stopping me except that I think I still need to sort out the strengths and weaknesses of it. Please view and critique. Thanks.

    Very nice!
    I really like the angles you are getting on these birds, as well as the eye contact!
    The first could do with a little less green in it - it might just be me but it looks a little overgreen (esp on the bird)
    Also are these 100% crops? (a direct crop without resizing off the original shot)

    Thanks!

    Thank you.

    I did bump up the saturation a little in PS on the first one. The first and third one were shot at ISO 800. #2 was shot at ISO 1600. Yes, these are 100% crops.

    The birds do seem to be wondering what the heck I'm doing. Thanks for your comments.

    Thanks, Miaow.

    I kind of like the first one saturated the way it is. The little fella does have those colors, I just bumped them slightly. We think he's a Blue Bird baby, as he just flew from the nest a few feet away. Anyone else have an opinion about it?

    Edit: Nope, he's not a Blue Bird but a Blue Jay...in any case blue.
