    I was watching this black crowned night heron for awhile and was so surprised when he came up with his lunch!544562B3-38A1-4744-B010-321833446382

The middle photo of the Tree Swallow is side lighting and follows through rule of thirds. Finally, Snowy Egret is front lighting.

    I live within 5 minutes of a secluded cemetary that has two ponds. The photos of the cormorants and the green heron were taken while sitting in my car while parked at the edge of the road. 8DB34475-6471-46BA-B87C-8AA7082C89A2FD9BBED0-0A74-4EEE-B590-43F0C9D972B1

    One of my favorite blinds is my house. I’m able to open the door that leads onto the deck which is near a really old dogwood tree. The photos of the mourning dove and blue jay were taken from the doorway as the birds sat in the tree. For the hawk photo, I had to creep out onto the deck and hid behind the empty flower boxes on the rail. The hawk definitely noticed my presence but stayed for awhile so I was able to grab some photos of him and his breakfast.22E733F7-031D-4913-8394-12A33A02A27D0712A9AF-3E21-4763-B07A-CC4B677DBFFAC6339144-04BA-4779-B4D3-6DABD3794755

    So....after doing some research on teleconverters, I found multiple people advising against using a teleconverter with my Canon EOS Rebel T6. Does anyone here have any opinions or information?

    I’ve been a bird watcher for many years and have started to take great pleasure in photographing birds. The majority of my photos are stationary birds and I would like to get better at photographing birds that are moving or in flight. I have two cameras. A Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70 superzoom Bridge camera and a Canon EOS Rebel T6. For the Canon, I have a Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lens. I use a monopod if I am not shooting handheld. The photo below of the Snowy egret was shot handheld with the Lumix on auto. The settings were ISO 100 f/5.9 1/800 s at maximum zoom. The Great Egret on the rock was photographed with the Canon Rebel using the Tamron lens and a monopod. Settings were ISO 1600 600mm f/14 1/1600s. One goal is to purchase a teleconverter to extend my reach. For the Rebel, I have Canon lenses and the Tamron so I need a teleconverter that would work with all of them. Another goal is to capture decent photos of birds in flight. My original Instagram account was hacked so I deleted it. My new account is @ferencysusan and right now there are only a handful of photos. If anyone in this course follows me, I’ll gladly follow you!7FF9DB54-C553-4991-8494-CC877A0C0FAAA41B9387-7B9B-4ECC-94D2-ADA0C41A2DE1
