  • very nice close shots. The gull is my favourite Peter
  • Replied in Sandhill Crane
    very nice work. I've seen lots of Sandhills in this forum but seldom close shots like these. The last image is my pick.  Either they don't like humans up close, or the viewing areas are protected ...
  • wow! better and better Milt.  The detail and colour in #1 are outstanding. That unusual pose of the snoozing Heron is amazing . . . well done Peter
  • definitely birds I've not seen, not even in a zoo. Thanks for posting them Mike Peter
  • Replied in Finches
    3 beautiful shots Peter
  • Replied in Shorebirds
    terrific shots Richard. I especially like the  stilt shot. I didn't know you had that lens Peter
  • here are a few species I caught a few weeks back while on holiday in the south Island of New Zealand. I didn't have a 'proper' birding setup but I did have a 70-200mm lens and 2x converter. Peter . ...
  • Created discussions looking back . . .
    . . . to 2005 when my brand new camera was an E-300 and my old dog was a very young 8 year old.  The E-300 is retired to a cupboard, and my dog passed his 17th birthday just before leaving us this ...
  • Replied in Chicks
    A good selection of .au birds Dicky, all nicely taken. I especially like the Fig bird pair. The Noisy Miner Manorina melanocephala is a native Australian species as far I know, but sometimes ...
  • impressive 1st pics Trevor.  Those 2 shots of the resting birds are amazing. It's interesting how the few non-dunlin stand out. I just read the DPR review of the GX7, interesting little camera. If ...
  • some tough shots with that bright background - nicely done Peter
  • plenty of color in these shots Milt. I've mentioned it before, . . .  your Fla water birds make our locals seem very drab. Even if you hadn't mentioned it, those first 2 shots of the goose convey ...
  • I love the penguins Mike. Patagonia is on my must see list. Peter
  • Great Shooting Bob!. The hawk image has a real 3D feel to it. I zoomed right in on your finch and IMO you should try a closer crop as there is lots of detail in there. I hope you have a wonderful ...
  • each is beautifully taken Richard. The exposure on the white bird is perfect, and when I looked at your EXIF I was pleasantly surprised to see that you used the E5. Peter
  • I caught this pair of Laughing Kookaburras a few weeks ago. The Australian Kookaburra is the largest Kingfisher (larger than a common pigeon), and it preys upon just about anything that moves, ...
  • I have used my FL50R without any problems on my Canon DSLR.  TTL mode is not available, but it works fine in Auto and Manual modes up to 1/200 sec. And for what it's worth, all my legacy OM flash ...
  • Thanks Sanjay. Yes, both sets were taken with the camera in 'tracking'  mode = Canon's AI Servo mode. Peter
  • Seth,  I agree with you that having to remove the grip from the camera to access the camera battery would be a real pain.  I have grips on my E5, E30, 5D and 7D,  and being able to swap out both ...
  • Excellent shots Trevor. The solo Dunlin is my favorite I suspect that the m4/3 people might not look too kind on Canikon posts though. Richard at least opens this forum to all cameras. Peter
