  1. That is a great shot. May be a little luck involved, but I've heard it's sometimes better to be lucky than good. Very good at any rate.
  2. I've used tinypic for the ones so far. I've opened a Flickr account but haven't poked around yet and am unfamiliar with it. I'll make an effort to try it later today.
  3. American Kestrel. This is quite zoomed, hence the fuzziness. I gotta get a longer lens.
  4. Last summer this little guy (not sure what it is) was sitting on our hummingbird feeder and pecking at the window. I'm guessing it saw it's reflection. I was able to grab my phone and get a couple of pictures.
  5. A Spotted Towhee that was near Vancouver Lake which is pretty close to the river. The eye may look a little odd because I was experimenting with Photoshop Elements.
  6. I see a lot of people use Flickr so I'm curious if that's the best site to use or just quite popular? Anyway, here's a Great Horned Owl that I couldn't get very close to today at a place called Frenchman's Bar in Vancouver, WA.. It is a popular spot for fishing, walking through the woods, dog training, and just hanging out by the Columbia River. This is the first owl I've photographed so I was pretty excited about it but the lens just could quite bring it as close as I'd like.
  7. I've been doing a lot of reading recently about this very subject and based on that, I would recommend a Sigma or Tamron 150-600mm. There are also a few very good sites where you can buy used lenses at a significant savings. I had a smaller Sigma that worked very well and I'd guess their longer lenses would be just as good.
  8. Was that near the Snake River? I ask because last year I was there and there were a few of those in trees that looked very similar to those. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me.
