Nice shots! I used to shoot birds for about a year or so, really got into it with what I could afford. Had some good pics here and there. Since having kids have had to narrow down my free time activities to metal detecting and cycling.

I would not like one to taste me..that beak and talons are the size of an adult,those talons can squeeze 400 psi too.

Good thing the parents were not being over-protective. Those talons would make an impression for sure.

What's your favorite camera that you are using?
I am currently using a M4/3 mirrorless camera.
Olympus OM-D E-M10 with the 60mm f2.8 macro lens, 12-50mm EX zoom kit lens, and 40-150mm zoom kit lens.




Since the E-M10 MKII and MKIII came out the orig. E-M10 used are going for a lot less on ebay and for the price is a good bargain.

So far controlling the urge (GAS- Gear Acquisition Syndrome) to buy more lenses or upgrading to the Olympus OM-D E-M10 MKII. Love to have some of the Pro lenses, the price is a good deterrent. Now if the price is right I would go for the MKII, as it has focus stacking and a few other features.......

Nice website http://www.four-thirds.org/en/special/matching.html
