    Default Young Magpies & Wilson's Snipe

    Finally getting back to taking some pics. Young Magpies have fledged, learned to fly, but still stick together.
    The Wilson's Snipe is unusally tame.
    Taken with the E-5 & 300 2.8 & 2x tc from car window resting on sandbags.

    Those poses are so good that I wonder what you pay your models? Great work. The background is quite sterile. It might benefit from some selective darkening.

    IMHO!

    Thanks for the note! Appreciate the suggestion. I take it you are referring to the snipe bg. I do like the others. I need to get out and do some more camera work; time flies.

    Nice to see your latest posting. As always, the images are tack sharp and full of detail. That 300 f/2.8 and 2x combo are still on my wish list - just can't beat the quality!

    Thanks, Diana. I just need to get out more to use it! This has been the least I've done for photography --life interferes!-- but do plan to get back at it soon.

    They are all nice, but the snipe is my favourite. That lens is amazingly sharp.

    That lens is sharp, indeed. Thanks for the look and the words.
