First Birds with New Camera

Posted By Steve Stonehill

Went to the beach with the new but not so great Digital Rebel and 70-200 f4 L lens. The first shot is of two young Great Black Backed gulls.

These beetles are all over the place around our house this year. I just happened to see this Wheelbug approach and kill this one.

First Day with New Lens

Posted By Steve Stonehill

Hi Gang,

I just bought a Sigma 170-500 for use with a Digital Rebel. It gives an effective focal length of 272 to 800mm.
I've never used anywhere near this focal length and didn't realize how much different it is from what I'm used to. Please feel free to criticize these shots and hopefully share some tips! smile

Thanks,

Steve

I'm not sure what species these little birds are. This pic reminds of a bomber being escorted by fighters. smile

Poorly Shot Buffleheads

Posted By Steve Stonehill

I noticed these in the bay today and decided to take a few shots. It was a little bit foggy and these little birds wouldn't come any closer than about 100 yards from shore. These are cropped at full resolution at 6.3mp. the shots were taken at 800mm.

Clear Skies,

We took these pics at Cattus Island county park on Barnegat Bay. The park is approx. 450 acres of preserved marsh and estuary.
