Tamron 150-600 mm- More Testing

1original sparrow

Friends, this is another test of Tamron 150-600 mm sharpness so those who are not interested can tune out now, this white-throated sparrow was on a bird feeder at Hawk Ridge, I was about ten feet away and the day was beautiful.  This would simulate conditions that i usually shoot little birdies, handheld and sitting on a rock.  No sharpening on this image just straight out of the camera, the bottom image is an extreme crop to show the head details2original details

This image is pretty sharp and the one below has some minimal sharpness added in photoshop, so til Tomorrow MJ

Sparrow Ridge?

Friends, this tiny bird is a white-throated sparrow visiting Hawk Ridge sometime in October.  I love the little yellow spot in front of his eye, the image below is a close-up of his head.  You can see the new bracelet that the banders have given him .  Some of these little birds are captured more than once cause they tend to hang around the bird feeders.  Lots of birds follow Hawk Ridge on their migration routes, so maybe Hawk Ridge should be called Bird Ridge.  Just kidding of course, the more spectacular birds always bring the crowds. til Tomorrow MJ
