    I haven't posted in a long while, nor really checked the forum lately so I figured I'd share a few from this spring. Some from Texas and some from here in PA and West Virginia. I invested in the Spyder Lens Cal by Data Color and early this spring took a few hours to really dial this lens in with the old Canon Mark IIN using the USB Dock by Sigma. It did a fine job with this "Antique", 14 year old 8 mega-pixel body of mine that just keeps on chugging along! All of these are using the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens for Canon EF @ 600mm.

    Holy smokes Diz...Those are really beautiful images. The sharpness and quality of all those images is very impressive. I love all the beautiful backgrounds (super nice bokeh). I noticed recently on one of Art Morris's blogs, that he had lots of great things to say about the Sigma 150-600 Sports lens. He was really impressed with the IQ of that lens. Art posted up a bunch of photos taken with the lens, and they were very nice.

    Very nice and I love that they were shot with a body that's not the latest and greatest. Good job.

    Holy cow Dizzy!!! Your images look great! Crazy image quality! I love the colors on the American Avocets! The White-throated Sparrow is a beautiful photo! Even @600mm you must have got nice and close. Great variety of birds. Hope you keep posting and sharing your photos.
