Thanks for the invite. I'm in. Now I wonder if this is an ongoing thread for the most recent bird shots?

This heron was waking up from a nap, and was stretching and putting on quite a show for me.

And some cute hooters.
There are a lot of opportunities for me to shoot bird shots, since I live in S W Florida, and out in the sticks. I just have to stop long enough to put a lens on and get the shots when I am on the way to or from work. The heron is at my fav lake, where I shoot a lot of sunsets. The lake is surrounded by swamp and is swarming with local birds and gators.

I want to do a birds workshop, I've seen a few advertised for IRO £100, I just wondered if anyone had any recommendations for ones they've done in or near South East England :)

This is one I took a while ago, but thought some might like? I stopped to take pictures of these vultures sitting in a tree in a swamp. As I was walking around the swamp, this little funnel cloud started to develop and come down.

Some eagle shots from today: still learning birding - tried renting a Tamron 200-500 but for my lack of skills probably need something faster.

I used to own the Tammy 200-500. Loved the reach and you could get decent shots with it as long as there was bright light but it did not quite cut it in lower light conditions. I've switched to the Nikon 80-400 VR and although it is the old AF system and still not considered a fast lens it does much better. Was worth the price of the upgrade. Now with my D300 body and higher ISO possibilities it really works well.

Some great photos in this thread! Lucky you who can watch some of the real big ones, like those eagles!
Here is one that I took a few days ago, it was kind and stayed put, until I was done:

Well, I did get this one. . . .

I was very happy with my lens which has gotten almost no use since I bought it over a year ago.
