Finally got out today with some new kit!

My wildlife and photography skills are in their infancy. Hard work (I admire you real wildlife photogs) but it was still fun.

Excuses first.. these critters don't sit still and nests are on bobbing water..

a selection of stills:

you can only get this compression with a long lens

sits still

why do they do so much preening when you want a static shot!

I think only the beak and tail feathers are sharp

nice OOF

Very well hidden .. very shy coots chicks and attentive (mum?) mum.. frequently taking them on the water

I took a couple of very short clips and put them on YT.. only one minute if the take care to watch.. loving video on this J2

uhm you exif says 50mm and f1.4 the whole time.

then the nice oof shot is not shot wide open as you can clearly see the aperture blades on the highlights.

Something about these files is very fishy.


Comments welcome.. good or bad..

Thanks for looking
