Experiments with Lenses and Birds

Yesterday I borrowed Elisabeths' Sigma 150-500 mm lens and attached my 2x adaptor to it for an experiment with lenses and distance ( with the 2x adaptor it gives me a 1000mm lens ) on my Nikon D50 DSLR Camera..here are some of the results in that endeavor to capture small objects from a longer distance and still get clarity.

As Always you can click on any photograph to enlarge for a much better view.

The first 4 photographs are of a cute little Carolina Chickadee that came to our feeder and I shot his photo from about 300 ft. away..he is very tiny and only about 4 1/2" long.









The next photographs ( 3 ) are of an Eastern Pewee ( a Sparrow sized Flycatcher )
Taken from around 1000 ft. away with the same lens set up as previous photographs.


 Looks like a "Bad Hair Day" for this little fellow.. ( Humor injected here )




This next photograph is of a White Crowned Sparrow that stopped at our feeder to have his photo taken...great pose..thank you



This Bird also stopped at our feeder..but as of yet I haven't figured out what species he is..he stopped by the feeder along with the above bird, but I do not think he is of same species...still researching..if you know the answer..please email me.




Thank you for stopping by my blog..all comments are greatly appreciated.

The bird with the striped head is a white crowned sparrow. We get them too. Love love the bird photos. I have feeders and I enjoy watching the birds and seeing new ones.
