Hi there. I haven't posted any shots in a while here, life and a new Job have taken up most of my time but I have spent lots of my free time this year trying to improve my birding and photo skills. I thought I'd compile some shots I think came out better than others and post some here.As you'll see there is a real mix. A big highlight was seeing the Sandhill Cranes at Reifel this year but also to get some Anna's shots and some very cautious Warblers. Hope you enjoy the pictures! Paul. All taken with a Nikon D7000 and Sigma 170-500mm.

Thanks very much Revs!! Your pictures are always very inspiring! Yes, hopefully I will post more frequently, I always enjoy the pictures and info on here. Sorry that first shot of the OC Warbler has gone missing, I can't edit the post so I'll repost it after.

Great set!

The lighting on that pie-billed shot is stunning!
