Well I finally managed to get my Eagle shot. I've been trying for quite some time but they always seemed to far away or I wasn't fast enough. I had to do a fair bit of cropping but I still think it came out quite nice. It's nice to finally get something. This was near UBC Spanish Banks. I've included a shot of the area so you can see where it is.
Hello all and thanks Vickie for this wonderful thread.
Actually it was more of bullying than a war. The larger Great Egret kept chasing the smaller one around , then the Blue Heron joined in. My observation was that the heron got upset that these two neighbors interrupted his hunting
At the end the birds made peace, and all three of them continued sharing their hunting grounds as usual.
House Finch (male), Anna's Hummingbird (female) and an Alligator Lizard. This lizard will get to about 1' (30cm) and he will bite!!
Got lucky recently getting these shots. And they did manage to swallow their catches, though it took the Grebe several tries to get it down. FZ200 with Nikon TC-E17ED.
Been trying out iZoom, using the resulting in-camera cropped Raw. These were taken at 48X zoom.
Wish I had taken a video but it never crosses my mind to do so during the action.
Hi Vickie, those shots came out really well. The 48x zoom doesn't seem to suffer much at all. I have had mixed results with the 48x, some come out looking like no digital zoom had been applied and others, while others weren't quite as good.
I have just ordered a 1.5x teleconvertor, which I should get on Monday, so I am keen to try it out and see what its quality is like.
Here are some birds in flight all taken with the FZ200. These were all shot near my home here in southern Australia at a local wetlands.
For some reason only one of the three birds I uploaded appeared in my post. I'll have another go at it.
Beautiful shots carizi. Isn't the green in the eyes of the cormorant amazing?
