Thanks Norma for the comments on my picture "Ring Tailed Chickadee"
My camera setup for the bird blind was a 300mm lens with a 2x converter a bit much for such a big critter.

Thanks Norma for commenting on my picture "Two Tone Dragon"
Sneaking up on these skittish little guys using a 100mm macro wasn't working for me. My camera setup for insects, frogs, and other pond stuff is the use of long focal length lenses, typically 400-600mm.

The ponds here in Iowa are starting to thaw and signs of life should return so let the pictures begin.

Thanks Norma for the comments on my picture "Bird Blind Blues"
I believe this bird to be an Indigo Bunting. The setup I used on this dreary day was a Canon 300mm 2.8 lens with a Canon 2.0x III extender giving me a very heavy 600mm setup that I attached to a monopod. Do to the lack of sunlight that day I set the Canon 5D III in aperture priority at an F-stop of 8.0 and an ISO of 3200. Even with an ISO of 3200 my shutter speed was only 320th of a second, less than half of what I would like it to be. On the bright side the birds didn't seem to mind the weather and the lighting was very even yielding several keepers besides this one.

Thanks Norma for the comments on "Wet Foot"
These birds nest in the tall reeds around the pond so are a common site.

Thanks Norma for the comments on "Bubbles"
For the camera buffs out there that are inquiring about the equipment I use this shot was taken with one of my favorite lens setups. The Canon 300mm F4L with a Canon 1.4x extender. The longer the lens the greater the working distance from the subject. No scare and no smell.

For this type of fast action photography I used the fast focusing Canon 7D with my fastest lens the Canon 400mm 5.6 L.

The black background was a technique I learned in the early 80s using Pentax's first TTL flash units.
