Hey, you are arming pretty well with that big glass!
Good to see that your tactic to attract the bird worked and besides that you were able to test the new lens.
I like the fine view of the plumage and the attitude of the bird.
My compliments for your new toy, I'm sure you will have a lot of fun with it, and wish you also good results in your school assignments.
Thanks for share,

Congratulations with your new lense,I guess you will make lots of nice images with it,it looks like this fellow enjoys the apple a lot,thanks for sharing
congrats for your new big lens, I know you will love it , when you get used to it.
I suppose you took this hand-held, the sharpness could be a bit better with this lens, it's very heavy to hold for a long time
and maybe step down one step when you use a converter,
Very nice low POV and nice composition.
Well done, mf.

Looks very good. Slightly similiar to blackbird in behaviour, I think. Well taken in good pose with opened beak, ready to jump and fly. Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG APO HSM sounds good - longer name, better lens :-)

Well...it isn't a waste Joey....and I know where you are coming from here...but I will more than likely just add my two points when needed...as long as I have to click one box anyway
I like the idea of the apple near the bird, obviously eaten:-) It gives a reason to think...I saw many wasted apples in my local area..some eaten by birds, some by others as yellow jackets!!! I saw trees full of apples never picked...Apple is the States big agriculture deal here in the US..Washington...people hungry though in other countries....life is out of balance...VERY good lesson shot.

nice bird posture and eye contact
although the mask when you applied blur on background can be better.

Very good capture of Fieldfare. I their breeding areas in the north they are not very popular as they eat all the berries already when they are raw. Good low POV, good composition, sharp details and bright colours. Congratulations for your new lense! I used to have the 120-300 version. Its a very sharp lens.

A splendid image with nice color and good details. You are showing me a species for the first time here Joe so thank you for that too. Have you ever heard any comments on the Sigma 300-800 mm lens?

Don't worry bout skipping TN ... we all have to at times. (I've been too busy having adventures)!
Great shot of this Filedfare with your new Sigma.It does look a little grainy though .... was the bird moving or was it taken handheld at a distance ?
Its still very good, and nicely composeded.
(The very first photo I critiqued on TN was a Fieldfare in a Rowan tree, by Gert Ellstrom.)

beautiful pattern seen and the gesture of the face is interesting.
Nicely composed with contrtasdting colours and I like the look it gave.
