    Wow, what a great shot! May I ask what kind of camera and lens you use? Your photos are so clear and detailed…just lovely!

    • Pat says:

      I use a Canon Rebel XTi. The lens I use most often is a Canon 70-300mm Telephoto with Image Stabilization.
      Recently I’ve added a Kenko 1.4x Telephoto extender, but it needs LOTS of light.

    Excellent shot! There’s even a reflection in his eye – amazing.

  19. Hi there – ncie bird – does the ‘texture’ you have added wash out the colour – or is the bird just a bit off colour (like me!!)
