In my opinion, the birds are very sharp, particularly the first one at the bottom, which is very normal...

I'm afraid Paula is right...the focus IS a bit soft. :( I was at full telephoto with no tripod as these little cuties didn't sit still for very long. And, I'm afraid I just can't hand hold my telephoto as still as I once could. :no: Age is an unstoppable force. :nod:

You know best, Mark! But I love these birds which I see sometimes on the top of a tree. You were lucky or skillful to be able to take this photo anyway.
I didn't know (it seems that I don't know anything...) that a telephoto was heavy. You are not old enough, Mark, you have had to react rapidly. And how can you hope to take good bird photos with a tripod? :giggle:

You're too kind. :bow: They really are beautiful...so colorful but the color is very soft, not stark. Actually, it's not that the telephoto is heavy, although some certainly are, but just that I shake a bit now and nearly always have to use some kind of stabilizer, be it a tripod or a tree trunk or something. True, on a tripod, it would be difficult to get good bird shots, unless they are in the habit of sitting in one place for a while...which these guys are NOT. :D But I should at least be using a monopod which is very flexible in it's ability to track moving subjects and still give some much needed support. :nod:

My pleasure as always, Mark!
:hug:

Actually, I don't even know what the telephoto is... big lens? :giggle: And I don't know at all what a monopod is either; I suppose that it is something like a tripod ( I know what a tripod is, cheers! I have one... :nod:), with only one "pod" instead of three?
Aww! You would have so many things to teach me! :blush:
