Love the color Rob. All I got here is sparrows and barn swallows. Not much for color this time of year.
A65 16mm-50mm 2.8
Tamron 72E 90mm 2.8 Macro
Sony 35mm 1.8 Sony
Sony 55-300mm and 55-200mm

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

Robbie, he looks like a conductor ready to start up the orchestra! Great shot!

Just, wow! :)

I had forgotten how good you were at catching the very special poses with birds, Robbie.


Thanks for sharing.

Is that some kind of Grey Shrike, Robbie?

Robbie, the EXIF says 300/2.8 lens, and yet mentions the focal length separately as 500mm... so, which lens for this superb shot?
A99 + a7rII + Sony, Zeiss, Minolta, Rokinon and M42 lenses

This was shot with the 500F4... I have noticed that the exif sometimes says 300/2.8.... maybe something to do with lens profiles in ACR...

In my case, I would be ecstatic. Yet another thoroughly enjoyable set Robbie. :)
