Intro: I am a keen birder from Sweden. My photos will be of birds... birds and maybe some birds... ;o)

I mostly use a Canon 40D DSLR and recently a Canon 7D. I use a Telephoto lens from Canon, a 300/f4 L IS USM for those beautiful birds. Quite often there will sit a Canon 1.4 II extender between the 300 lens and the body making it to a total 672 mm in 35 mm analogue equivalent.

I don't like the thought of wild birds or other animals in captivity. The only excuse for this is to save endangered species from going extinct. So therefore am I not normally interested in photos of captured animals, or animals in zoo:s or domesticated animals in parcs etc.

However I might comment photos that are not technically perfect but has something interesting or beautiful to show. It will normally require an good and interesting note as well to grab my attention.........
