A few wildlife images, principally birds, which because of their size, speed of flight and secretive nature are a real challenge.

All images were shot with a Nikon D3 and either a Nikon 70-200 mm f2.8 or 500 mm f4 lens. The images were processed in CS5 with levels adjustment and after cropping a small amount of sharpening was applied.

All these images are low resolution and will pixelate if enlarged.

Some bird images to start .......
