Hi Thomas, thanks for your comments, its a tamron AF70-300 F/4-5.6.
Im also embarrassed to say i take many of my photos on auto. I have so much to learn and sometimes not enough time i.e only weekends.I also worry that if i dont shoot on auto, i might miss a great photo by messing it up, but i really intend to try harder, but the main thing is i thoroughly enjoy myself. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Nothing to be embarrassed about, Sue. I shoot mostly on auto too!
The critical thing is to know when you cannot rely on auto alone :idea:

Thomas - it was only a thread full of my own birds -> http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8654

I think I'll give it a month before I re-post any of them - once my thread buries itself. Until then, I have a few leftovers that I did not post yet. (i think)

But I have a question!!! Where do the penguins go!!!

Anyway, here's some I don't see in my other thread, but these are not among the good shots:

Purple Swamphen

Cuban Amazon
Image

Palawan Peacock Pheasant
Image

Golden-headed Quetzal

^^ Very nice “exotic” birds. ^^

This one is a mere commoner...

Do Penguins have webbed feet?
Do Penguins waddle?
Do Penguins swim?
3xYES!
So please post those lovely Pengu-shots at Duck-O-Day :idea:

Serenity: Ah, I thought that thread was only for your shots form the Bronx-Zoo...
I'd say: We'll keep this thread open for everybody and you'll decide, where to post. There is always the option to continue "personal" threads to keep it more focussed on your own work.

Nah, it was. I should have thought about opening it to everyone since I knew I'd be posting a lot.

Maybe I'll be the first to post penguins in the duck thread!

Btw.: I'd love to see more closeups of those lovely, colorful, iridiscent feathers.
I think the Purple Swamphen as well as the Palawan Peacock Pheasant provide some excellent "material"!

Hello again Thomas, hope you dont mind me adding a few more. :)

Image
This peacock strutted around freely,every time i went to take a photo he turned his head, or wandered into the bushes,deliberately i think, or just camera shy, lol, i finally managed to get a few shots (auto again :oops: )


Image
I love the red colour of the rooster.

Image
This bird i feel is definately posing, showing off his feathers, but it looks like his losing some stuffing. :D

Taken with my tamron lens 70-300 ,the peacock i cropped, and i adjusted the contrast on them all
regards sue

Thanks, Thomas! I will prepare more of the bird photos for the thread. I already posted the "best" ones in my other thread and these were the runner ups, but I certainly have so many more to choose from.

We think this was a Kestral, I actually managed to grab 2 shots of him coming out of the undergrowth with his prey in one he had a field mouse in the next he had dropped it, and both the pics? I was so flipping keen to get the shot that I panned awfully and ruined them both, but still got this one that I really like.
