Some unnamed birds + a BIF !

All these were shot with a Nikon V1 and a 300mm f/4 AF-S ! The Exifs are embedded !

A grey heron, nesting 80 feet up !

...and the lucky shot !

Re: Some unnamed birds + a BIF !

Nice sharp detail. (1) is a goldfinch (2) is the female Bullfinch and (3) is the male Bullfinch.

Got my male Bullfinch a couple of days ago with the 70 - 300mm VR. Not cropped.

Wow JP, nice feather detail on the first one and the rest are nice as well. How are you liking the V1 compared to the J1?

Superior shots, jp, the falcon (I think) sitting and in flight are really lucky shots, great detail and colors. You do honor to that new V1, Peter

Thanks Paul !

Indeed shooting is A LOT EASIER with the EVF than with the back monitor !

I feel like I was shooting my D700 !!!

Thanks Peter !

That guy was sitting on the same tree, just about 4 feet below the Grey Heron's nest ! When he flew away, he made a few circles around (of 300-400 feet diameter) then came back exactly on the same spot ! I guess he was watching the nest, hoping to have EGGS for his breakfast tomorrow !!!

Excellent shots - specially the Kestrel in flight. That is difficult to nail using the FT1 - very well done.

Wow... thanks !

I must say that it's now with the V1, a lot easier to shoot when there is a strong light, than it was with the J1 !

Thank you !

...mind you... the BIF was a big bit of luck ! ...but easier to do when looking thru the EVF of the V1 than before, holding the J1 one foot in front of my eyes and looking in the monitor !

Thanks Ron !

Mind you, saturday I will exchange my 300 f/4 for a 300 f/2.8 VR II (plus a large ammount of $$, of course) !

So I hope the next bunch of pics will be better... and more expensive, LOL !!!

BTW, I made an error.....

...as it seems that the bird in the last two images isn't a FALCON but a RED KITE !

I learned that after I asking the ID in the "Nature and Wildlife Photography" forum !!!
