Hi all, got a birds of prey photography workshop next Saturday, can't really decided on which certain lenses to take, there will be birds posing, flying and holding the birds on your hand, so up to now I'm taking, canon 70-300 f4-5.6 nano usm, Tamron 150-600 g2, for closer shots should I take rf 24-105 f4, rf35m 1.8, sigma art 85m 1.4, Tamron 45mm 1.8 or Tamron 90mm macro ? literally can't decide on a close up lens, would like to take a maximum of 4 lenses total with me, never done anything like this before so unsure what to expect, many thanks

Captive birds of prey will let you get very close so I think you are covered

With what you are already taking I would take the best lens you have for good background blur.

probably the sigma 85mm 1.4 but its not very good close focusing where as the Tamron macro is good for headshots but not so good for full body and some of the birds are large

lol I like your thinking but the sigma 120-300 f2.8 could be a better shout :)
