I was looking through my pics and thought I’d post some

older ones (when my Canon actually worked properly).

These were taken with a 70-300mm.IMG_3703-2.jpgIMG_8483.jpgIMG_9297-2.jpgIMG_1876.jpgIMG_3078-2.jpg

Great shot of the gull in flight.  That ain’t easy.

Ok… What are the other bird’s?
You shoot em, you name em.

Ok… Number 3 is the Cedar Waxwing…. pretty bird.

The last two are……. I’m gonna say the ubiquitous House Sparrow.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Muneer – The 70-300 is an awesome lens for the price. Since I bought

mine it has been advertised for about $300 less than I paid for it! 

I don’t know if the lens needs tweaking or the old Canon is just ready for

the scrap heap but I have noticed a bit of a lack in sharpness lately on some

shots.

Mandrake – The seagull would have been a lot better if the damned thing would

have given me a chance to get the entire bird in the shot – it flew in so fast to land

that I just got what I could. The small birds are chickadees or house sparrows or

something else that we have a lot of up here. You are right about the cedar waxwing.

We don’t see them too often so I was happy to get this shot of one. I guarantee you that

the first creature is a bee!

There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees.  Which is this?

Mandrake.

I thoroughly researched this following your above inquiry and was

able to deduce that this bee is…

One that will probably get pissed off and sting you if you are stupid

enough to grab hold of it!

Nice collection of birds Dale. #3 and 4 are my favorite. What happened with your camera?

Thank you for those comments Oksana.

My old Canon has probably been used too often and it sometimes

doesn’t take the shot now when I press the shutter lol! I very seldom

use it now but it was a great camera to learn on.
