Peter, you haven't been around for a while. Have you been busy cleaning pigeon "marks" off your lens? #1 is my fave, but the detail of the long-tail in #2 is great. The wide-angle stuff is a new perspective. I've been experimenting with the same idea the last few years using a remote. (no baiting).

Don, I admire your reluctance to bait birds. However, BIF photography at 8mm FL neccessitates some sort of baiting and/or prior training. I did use sunflower seeds for the pijun shots above, because untrained pijuns, very much like untrained owls, do not fly into your face unless you are dispensing food for them.

Magnificent shots at extreme ends of focal lengths Peter. There appears to be no room to complain about the results obtained with the first two images, rather impressive I say!
I think the perspective of the fisheye shots is startling, it is a view we rarely see or experience, that is unless it is 'you' posting them

Great range my friend, excellent!

I don't have a problem with that. Pigeons are "baited" all over the world. I'm doing songbirds near cavity nest sites. I make sure the birds aren't harmed.
It is an interesting perspective though with the wide angle. Don

Thank you, Karl, your approval means a lot to me, especially when it comes on St.Valentines.

Thank you Jerry, ole bean, good gears make a difference. In fact, if you can attract birds to alight on your hand with offering of seeds, you should be able to get their picture in flight with a very wide angle lens. When your plan/gears are ready, I'll share a few little tips with you.


Peter, ole bean is looking to roll early next week, with good fortune some shooting as well. The pumpkin was delivered but no positioning of gearz completed, images will be posted...this year I hope

Look forward to your pijun tips, once head clears, plans are for a roll on the HB Pier, March or April seem about right; vertical adjustment requires time...the pier will be fun, lots of sun to warm, some birds n pijuns to shoot, have a burger

Jerry, I wish I could join you in that sunny and warm SoCal marsh. I'd bring some hefty gears, and I could be your gunny.....you tell me what to shoot and how, and I aim and fire for ya.

Peter, if you ever ponder coming out this way we will have to inform FM, there are a dozen or more here in SoCal including da man Mr. Miranda. That would be quite the shoot out, I'd be way out gunned but it would be a blast.

The 6D is getting closer price wise, just gotta get this ole bean's body up to speed before I drop those dimes. Last I checked w/24-105 it was $2400, translated that's 1600 for the body; works for me.

Nice job all around. Both #1 and #2 are winners.

I love the fisheye of the pigeons. It brings back lots of childhood memories for me as we raised "some", as in about 100+ pigeons at one point. They're like flying rabbits.

Would love to see some fisheyes of Seagulls. In San Francisco (Pier 39), those bad boys will fly right up "in your face" if you're eating a breadbowl of soup or a corndog. And as big as they are, you probably won't need them that close, either.

That's a terrific pose in #1 Peter... and the doves at 8mm FL is a really cool perspective.

Thank you, George, gotta remember that my photoshop skills are even worse than my shooting skills.
