    Superb set! You're making me rethink keeping my dslr for wildlife, birding.

    Mmm, quality shots again. I like the timing, the compositions, the quiet backgrounds and the sharpness of the subject. Great skills and persistence. :thumbup:

    Hi Chris, welcome to the forum. :)

    Are you sure you've posted your (very nice!) shots in the right thread? We try to put pics where they make the most sense to keep the confusion level manageable. For some of us anyway. ;)

    If you choose not to start your own thread, there are several appropriate Pic-of-the-Day type threads ( https://www.talkemount.com/f20/pic-day-2107/index96.html or https://www.talkemount.com/f20/summertime-pic-day-3691/index28.html ) that would work.

    Again, welcome aboard, we look forward to seeing more of your work. :)

    Sorry folks, still need to catch up here.

    All with Canon FD tele lenses and they are MF. I don't own any AF lenses or Sony lenses, just the NEX-7.

    All the best and thanks for that, appreciated.

    Danny.
