nice shots! a question though, are those tame or wild? reason i asked your shots look really close, but i guess you could be using one helluva lens.
I'm the best there is at what I do...just ain't figured out what that is yet!

I have a few ponds/creeks in the country I visit and the birds get used to me most of the time and sometimes I am in camo or behind a hide or up a tree. My farmer friends are my real estate clients and are near the city and the ponds/land is posted. These birds are wild they fly and are not golf course loafers.
NO I don't have a helluva lens..I use an second entry level Sony A200 with some old lens like the $250 1995 Minolta Big Beercan 70-300mm f4.5-45.6 knowing where the best f stop and setings for the lighting conditions are...shots are from 5-10-25yds with the focal length set at 300mm with the effective cropped focal lenght of 450mm equivalent..I could do better with a 100-400mm which I passed up and should have bought. Sometimes I add on a 1.4 teleconverter and shoot maual focus out to 600mm and doctor the pics abit for sharpness and contrast.
