Nice to have a pair of Goldfinches nesting in my garden this year, never had that before. Nikon D3300, SW80ED 600mm with a 2X telenegative taken from an old zoom lens. Not perfectly sharp as this thin branch was swaying around but it's near enough.

Hi Paul,

Long time no see... Nice Goldfinch.

Here is a photo that I am quite pleased with. Male Red-backed shrike photographed late evening in the deep shades after the sun had died behind the trees.
It was quite a distance to the subject as I did not want to take the risk of scaring the bird who was posing near perfect.
TS102 and adding 1.4 TC for a total of ~1000mm focal length.
Olympus EM-1 Mark 2 ISO3200 1/50s (!)

Cheers
Tord

This Robin is in the garden daily, looking scruffy now after a long nesting season and multiple nesting attempts, all of which I think have been unsuccessful as I've seen no young accompanying the adult.

Nikon D3300 - SW80ED - 6x7 medium format 2x teleconverter glass mounted into Nikon extension tubes.

Paul.
