A young Robin taking a break from flight lessons.
Just started working with a new set up for birds.Very pleased with the results.
1DIII 100-400 IS+1.4xTC
560mm f/8 ISO 800 1/100" spot metered +2/3 EC handheld
C&C always appreciated.

Nice and sharp, Jim. What do you of a 4x5 crop with the Robin at the left 1/3 line?
PS: Would you mind sharing some details of your new setup?

Thanks,Abhi,I'll give your suggestion a go.I still struggle some with composition.

I found a really good deal on a used 1DIII,so I sold the 50D.The 1DIII will auto focus with my lens and TC combo.
I'm very happy with the results I'm getting.

Ron,thanks for the comment.I've been putting the combo through it's paces the past couple of weeks.It's pushed me to really pay attention to my technique.Also has made me realize I need to start working with a tripod.Free standing handheld has become tougher.
