These are all beautiful, Mike! I enjoy the challenge of BIF, so for me, #2 is my favorite. I love the blurred out mountains and background. Just awesome! Mike, can I ask what you've chosen for your settings? I've thought about doing a preset, but lighting tends to always be changing. I'm always looking to learn and try to improve.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos, Mike!
Thanks for your generous comments, Patty. I use a 100 - 400 mm lens with a 1.4tc. My birding pre-set is Auto focus, Auto ISO (the shot you liked was 125); auto WB. This one was 1/500 at f/8. The firmware on the lens is excellent for birds.
