    Beautiful photos and I just have to ask, what lens and how far away from the bids in the last two pics were you? I'm still undecided on a bigger tele lens or not. Thanks![/QUOTE]


    Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM.

    Nice pic there! I feel for you! That was my experience in Georgia and it's frustrating! I went there thinking I was going to capture a bunch of smaller and different birds and instead I get kicked in the eye, so to speak.

    it's not supposed to be easy, you have to be patient,stubborn,smart and lucky, all at the same time. that sparrow i just posted was almost 2 1/2 hours of waiting after i first spotted him.

    wow two and half hours.. i do have patience though.. i just cannot seem to get the right view when the hummer appears.. even when i have a great shot.. the sun somehow just darkened the photo.. i will not give up.. i will keep on trying ..until i get it right.. this was one i took today.. i know it could and will be eventually better then this one..I just don't think the ones i do get are worthy yet but i am trying..lol 1-hummer 007.JPG .

    Great photos!

    Patience is definitely needed. After a year and a half of trying I still haven't gotten a decent shot of the hawks in the area. And the peregrine falcon keeps toying with me.
