No waxworms, just ancient Chinese secret. grin

We had some very cooperative birds and decided to get creative and thought maybe that be the type of image to send into Birds & Blooms or something along those lines.

Love the first one. Calander shot for sure.

Birds and Bloom would probably love to have either of them.

Those shots are great!

I've seen a few people do the same thing. One guy was using his ipod touch,which he had many,many territorial bird songs downloaded onto it. He would stick the ipod in the hood of his 600mm F4,and had 5-6 birds sitting on his rig at one time!

Using today's technology,it's quite easy to pull birds into 200mm range,all that's needed is an mp3 player w/external speaker,and download some various bird songs off the WWW.

Excellent bluebird images. The first image has it all, bg control, great subject placement, perfect dof, sweet perch,

light, etc. etc. The whimsical nature of the second image is quite engaging. Top notch sir.

    • http://shareblue.com/every-outlet-wh-banned-from-press-briefing-is-chasing-stories-on-trumps-russia-ties/   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
