Zack, what I thought was unusual is the Grey Catbird had one claw turned backwards, guess it helps to keep it from falling off.


Cheers

A lot of our passerines here will do that - I think you're right - it's for stability...it usually is when they are on a relatively thin branch or reed...which is common in our wetlands areas. I often see the warblers standing that way, and the least bitterns will do it when they climb out to the end of a long reed bent under their weight.

It dawned on me that I've never posted ANY photos in this thread from my second camera body - all my shots as I've tried to get caught up have been from the DSLR. So I also wanted to share shots I've taken with my mirrorless kit, which serves as a second body and serves primary summer duty when the big DSLR is just too much to carry in the heat and rain. The following shots are taken with a Sony NEX-5N with a Sony 55-210mm e-Mount lens, and most with the addition of a DH1758 1.7x teleextender. It's a nice lightweight and small kit (2.7Lbs) that still gives me a decent 535mm equivalent reach. Here goes:

Thank you! Couldn't be happier, though I had a hard time getting my 7D to focus spot on as always (which it didn't in a lot of cases with the kingfisher, even with it sitting still). But all that is going to change (hopefully) since I am sending my camera and lenses to the Canon repair center today. They are going to check the autofocus of the camera, and then calibrate the body with all of my L-lenses to get the optimal result. Hope that it works out like a charm, since I am really annoyed by the autofocus being way to unreliable right now.

awesome work MTK, there doesn`t seem to be too much wrong with you gear. I found that the 7D has a tendency to front focus, the 6D doesn`t do that.
I love Kingfishers too, we get a few different types out here including the kookaburra

maxjj: thank you, but when looking at 100% you would notice that it isn't always as good as I expect it to be. Only the first one, and the last two pictures are pinpoint accurate. The others are sharp enough when the picture is shown a lot smaller than the original. And when looking at all the pictures I took, there is just a small percentage (way lower than 50%) that was actually focused accurately out of like 200 pictures. And the bird was sitting still mind you!

If anything, having Canon adjust the lenses and camera to an (hopefully) optimal setting, will give me some peace of mind and give me back my confidence in the camera and lenses.

And lastly: I am very jealous of you having kookaburra's near you! Awesome bird as well, even though the common kingfisher will always be my favorite. :)
