NEX-7, 800mm, Caspian Terns, Heron, Swans and a Sparrows

Please note: No birds were baited or harmed during this operation

Ha, just had to say it Not even the Sparrows, LOL.

Over at the estuary yesterday to try out the 800mm once again. Always an interesting exercise compared to the 500mm to say the least.

NEX-7, Canon FD 800mm F/5.6L, heavy tripod, Gimbal head and a bucket load of patience.

Sparrows. I still love these little birds

Caspian Tern on the look out for fish

Down for a closer look for fish

Just cruising

A more intense stare

One day I'll get one of these on a dive. Amazing to watch as they head straight down

A white faced Heron as a test for the 800mm. Full frame from the NEX this one

Always plenty of swans at the estuary.

All the best folks and slowly coming to terms with the 800mm. Finally understanding the ins and outs.
