New here, weather is horrid this time of year but thought to introduce I'd just post a few of my favorite bird shots from the past. C&C always welcome.

I love them all actually. But if i had to cc one i would say the last pic is too dark for my taste. but everything else looks very nice! can we see some more? any birds of prey?

I've wanted to capture a humming bird for quite some time now. Very cool shot! All of them look great! I agree with Hybrid Designz about the last one though. It's not dark enough to make it bad, but lightening it up a little would make a world of difference I think.

Hey thanks for all the feedback much appreciated :)

I agree, the last needs some fill light in the shadows, I took that a few years ago when I got my first DSLR, I don't think I kept the original RAW file, back then I didn't even know how to edit things properly. If I do have it, I'll try to brighten the shadows up :)

Hybrid: I think I have a few osprey shots, but been very unlucky with hawks and eagles dern it!

Colin: That was my best hummer shot, most are of them sitting on or at the feeder, and I agree, those guys are tough, they usually show up after sun down when it's kinda dim out, so hard to get a fast shutter speed. I envy those people who have them in the bright light drinking on a cool flower, that's my dream shot of one :)

Thanks everyone, really appreciate the comments :)
If I see that cedar again, I'll let him know he's won the popularity contest ;-)

The fourth one, A ceder waxwing. A very tough bird to get, they do not seem to be fond of feeders and prefer to perch at high points in the trees. Well spotted and captured.


I my self have only one sucessful shot of a ceder waxwing despite their being relatively common here during the summer months.

Thanks for looken :)

I got lucky with that guy, he landed ina small berry producing tree in our yard, about 15 feet away, while I was standing there with my Camera in hand! Like "thank you!" lol

That's a good shot you got too, it's weird how birds are different in different areas, around here, I can usually walk up about 15 or so feet to cedars and robbins, but starlings book it when I'm 50 feet away.
