    My local black phoebe. Kind of a lucky shot as I just panic panned as the bird took off; somehow centered it so the AF could do its job. I shot this at 300mm to see if the image would sharpen up; it did.

    This looks like a juvenile that is getting its adult plumage. There is still a hint of brown in its feathers.

    Lucky we are on the west coast of the U.S. to see this common flycatcher on virtually every outing, announcing his presence with a rather monotonous chirping. Great subject to practice your photo technique, as it poses from a clear perch and even if it leaves it will likely return shortly. Black...

    This little guy had a gigantic dragon fly, but after beating it up on the wooden perch for a while, it went down with one gulp. WOW! Blackish head, dark gray above, white belly.

    SInce it was very over-cast this morning, I decided to pop a strobe on the bird, even though I really do not like to do that. Here is the comparison of the two shots. On the left is the bird shot with available overcast light, the other same natural light BUT with on-board stobe. What do you...

    This little birdy was hawking bugs right in front of me... These are some of gthe toughest to shoot, since they are black and white, exposure is a dreaded mess.
