Good shot Mark. I like the blue sky you have in the background. Looked like a nice day! Haha! I think I will be doing some birdie photos sometime soon.

It is indeed a chainsaw. This was taken at a zoo - the exhibit showed the destruction of the forest. I should have mentioned that in my original post!

I hope you like it. If you want the EXIF data, it's on my Flickr :wink:

Hello everyone!
This weekend I went to a very, VERY beautiful city in Brazil called Campos do Jordao. It is an mountain city with lots of beautiful landscapes and wildlife and I could take some pictures of our beloved feathered friends there too.
The EXIF data can be retrieved aty my Flickr. :wink:

I took most of those with a 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM attached with a Kenko Pro300 Teleconverter. :wink:

Brazilian Falcon:

Blue Arara (parrot)

We call this fellow "Joao de Barro" (Muddy John) because it builds his home using mud.

Black Bird

Hope you like it!
PP was only Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness and some crops.
C&C will be appreciated :wink:

Took this shot on campus. The bird was amazingly not shy at all...

More info on Flickr, just click the pic. I would have actually liked to have shot wide open for that famous beercan bokeh, and shoot at a lower ISO than 400, but experience told me that CA would be a problem. Surprisingly, it did rather well at f5.6 which was something of a compromise. Lighting was kind of poor because it was shaded. I have more pics, but don't have the time to develop/salvage them right now. Some were better than others.

Thanks! I honestly thought I was going to see nothing but crows, pigeons, and squirrels. Although there is this albino squirrel that I wouldn't have minded getting some pictures of. The last thing I expected to see on my walk was a falcon. Kind of made my day.

WOW!! Now THAT'S a really nice photo, csrussell! Sharp as a tack, great colors, great contrast and a pretty nice blur of the background. If it were mine, I would print that for sure. Congratulations!
:wink:
Any PP on the picture or is it "right off the camera"?

Hey westcoast... How much did you crop? It looks like you cropped it so much that it lost a lot of its clarity... But I like it for some reason... makes it actually look like our flying friend is REALLY high up!
