This is a great capture, Benjamin..well done! #131872

Beautiful exposure, sharp and wonderful interesting color!! Well done, Benjamin!! I'm assuming this is with a Canon 100-400?? I don't recall any third party lens offering this focal range. And Nikon doesn't have this focal length either. #561431

Great shot, Benjamin! #561582

Ben M. Trapnell 5/26/2004 6:39:50 PM

Dolores - you are right. It is the Canon 100-400 (IS) L. 400mm wide open - this is one of 4 frames shot hand-held in a burst. They were all this quality, though, the little bird had other ideas about composition. Thanks for the great feedback. It is encouraging and greatly appreciated. I continue to be amazed with the 10D and this lens. The sun was about 15 minutes from dropping below the horizon - thus the very warm colors. #561585

Glad you snaped that shutter 4 times, this is awesome. Great lighting and wonderful detail. Has to be one of the best bird images I have ever seen. #561646

Jim, Diane, Thomasa, Cathy, Kristin, Ron, Dorothy, Darren, thank you for the wonderful and very kind feedback on my Warbler.

Wow! I am overwhelmed! My sincerest thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to respond to this picture. I can't get over how many people, most with so many of their own great pictures, have taken the time to acknowlege mine. It really warms my heart to know that there are so many tallented, caring people routinely viewing Better Photo. My thanks to you all for your inspiration. #604064

I love your photo of the Cape May warbler. These little guys are really hard to photograph, but your photo is perfect. I also have a 10D camera and was thinking about getting the 100-400 lens down the road. Your photo has convinced me that it's a great lens. However, I'm sure it will take me a very long time and lots of practice to take a photo such as this one (even with the lens). #630349
