Beautiful images. I'm amazed at these captures with the 300 f4 - even with the TC, were they captured from a blind?

No, These birds have a very small comfort zone so I can get in close without one. Thanks for looking, Rick

Nice work!

The owl almost looks too big for the branch he is perched on. I really like the behavior portrayed in the mockingbird shot.

Hi Rick, all of the images are great. The barred owl image is the best that I've ever seen. The image of the mockingbird is exceptional-- the pose, the background, everything is top notch. I have visualized an image like this for myself. Congratulation!

Tom
