Okreb's recent activity

  • Very nice series. I especially like the Goldfinch.
  • I did not have the opportunity to go out photographing this week because of doctor's appointments and family commitments. Here are a few from the archives, all images captured one year ago - Feb. ...
  • Replied in Hummers
    Richard, very nice series. of the Hummingbirds. In all the years that I have been photographing birds, I have never, ever had the opportunity to photograph a Hummer.
  • Ron, on occasion a breeding pair produces another clutch but it may be at another location. It's hard to tell with any certainty.
  • I have seen, on rare occasions, a breeding pair of GBH produce a second clutch in the season but if so, it may be in a different location.
  • Unfortunately, the chicks in the nests did not survive. The adults may have been able to fly off to safety.
  • The nest is part way up a tree about 15 ft. off the ground. It is on an island in the wetlands and i photographed from a boardwalk. The nest appears low because of the cropping I did to the ...
  • Gdday John, I love the E-M1. I'm 89 years old now and find it difficult to carry my old kit. The light weight of the m4/3 camera and lenses are just what I needed to continue to go out and get the ...
  • Replied in Home Invaders
    Gdday John, Nice series of your local birds in habitat.
  • Like the Mockingbird image. Get it a date or mate.
  • Gdday Peter, Nice series of the Gulls. Well done with the 2X converter.
  • I like the Finches roosting on the branch.
  • Replied in Great Egret
    Very nice BIF image and hand-held.
  • This is the time of year when Great Blue Heron mate and raise their young here in south Florida. I usually try to follow one or two nests and photograph their progress. Unfortunately, just about a ...
  • Here are a few more from this week, all taken with the E-M1 and the 75-300mm lens at ISO 400. Female Anhinga. 1/1600, f/6.7, 300mm. Great Blue Heron in Nest. 1/2500, f/6.7, 286mm. Tricolored Heron. ...
  • Here are a few Roseate Spoonbill images I captured the other day with the E-M1 and the 75-300mm lens at ISO 400. The Spoonbill was quite a distance away. I did not think I would be able to obtain ...
  • G'day Peter, I love your kingfishers. They are a difficult subject to captured here in Florida. Well done.
  • Hi Ron, Many thanks for your kind words. Some of my images, as taken on the days I go out, can be accessed at my gallery link below.
  • No new images this week. Some bad weather and some illness kept me indoors. Here are a few from the archives, all captured with the E-M1. Great Egret in breeding plumage. Cattle Egret in breeding ...
  • Hi Ron, the only difference between the sexes of the Anhinga are the color of the neck. The male has a black neck while the female's neck is brown. The color difference you note is because of the ...
