I've never seen one of those. Nice colors and contrast though.
It's still winter around here, I haven't posted in the bird forum before but this was too good to leave alone. In fact, I didn't even edit it, just resized the raw file with irfanview.
Plus, the one that got away (my sales plug for the E-620).
Taken with my 70-300mm lens.

Like shot 1 Raven, would prefer a slight digital crop to make them larger in the frame. 2 could have been a killer shot, oh well.

We mainly have small birds around here at this time of the year: timouses (great and blue ones), black bird and of course sparrows. Here are some:

Thank you for the comments, I am delighted you liked them. I don't have a foot in but I have friends in both camps. In this particular case, teamwork was very efficient: Canon attracted the young "models", while Nikon did the job. As usual...

We had a little heavy, wet snow in Atlanta today. It kept the birds at the feeders. The first one is our smallest bird; a kinglet. They are not much larger than hummingbirds. They show bright red spots on their heads when they get worked up. The female cardinal just looked less than thrilled to be out in the weather.

I like the female cardinal one the most. Capture, colors, clarity and lighting are excellent!
