Its been awhile since my last post but I have been around shooting. These are some recent shots from the past few days. I swear it is colder now then in January, at least it is sunny.

What a great set of shots! Like 'em all, but especially the chickadee, seagull-underbelly, angry redwinged blackbird, and mourning dove shots.

Thanks for all the comments. Ray, the Saw Wet is at Lyndeshore but I checked Sunday morning and he was no where to be found :( Funny, was looking for long ears and came home with a saw wet, pretty much an even exchange.

He has taught me so much, I couldn't sit down and type it all up.. I have met him about 10x in the field, and each time I see him, I get more and more info.. he is a wealth of knowledge and very willing to share. He is an engineer, and knows so much about the tech side of photography. and equipment.

He has many good friends, whom share info, and good photo opps. He is retired, and is out shooting everyday, all day.

He taught me to:

Over expose when shooting into a white sky or bg (as much as 3 f stops)
Choose a line on a subject that has the bg as far as possible away from the subject
To always be slightly above the eye level of the bird whenever possible.
Get your chin in the dirt if need be.
Always use a fill flash in bright sun
Always have your shadow pointing at the bird (if possible)
When you have time on a standing bird, change your settings.. iso, shutter speed, aperture, and angle if possible, and shoot as many different combinations as time permits.
Shoot in RAW
use a tripod whenever possible
shoot birds in calm water whenever possible
never shoot a bird flying away from you
try to keep the bg as clean as possible
under expose when there are bright whites

might be some good info here...

beyond that., I just study the forums, and the photogs websites... I see their shots, and determine what they had to do to get them as best as possible., and look for inspiration.. like when I see your stuff.. gets me going!

Now I am sure I will be flooded with emails and phone calls helping me find the ever elusive Saw Whet.. right?
