Hello Again

By AndrewCee
A closer look at our friendly Woodpecker... A bit of a cheat as we've seen our friend before, however I like the detail in the feathers, the claws, and the eye too. I what others think? Should one stick with shooting the whole bird, or do shots close in work too?

Whole bird or works OK for me. Cracking shot of the male Great Spotted variety
I have a female that comes to our fat balls, but can't as close as your 500
The detail you have here is superb

I started out last year with the long lenses, this shot being taken with a 'slightly worn' 500mm f4 manual focus. I've a 600mm auto now, with which I took the Red Kite shot. All good fun!

I like the close up, nice shot. Can anyone tell me why my 70-300 USM IS lens now has a very stiff focussing ring, so that I can autofocus but manual focussing is difficult (I badly need a better lens) but this is frustrating in the extreme, lens is Canon, driving me nuts normally!

The one time I had a 'stiff lens' was thanks to me dropping my 14-24 f2.8 Nikon zoom at the top of Blackpool Tower. It was still sharp, but the zoom ring was next to impossible to turn. I wonder, if your lens has not been dropped, bashed or similar, has it got condensation inside, got damp or similar? Struggling to help, sorry.
