Re: Waterbirds from India

Nice& sharp Captures Makarandji!! IMHO they will be better if the birds are shot from a lower angle. :-).

What about the 1.4TC which you were expecting?

Kind regards

Re: Waterbirds from India

A wonderfull set all round Makarand !

Well composed and captured - all. 
The colour of the flamingos on the brown mud is striking
Your BIF shots are especially good, all taken with the 50-200mm without your EC-20 I see.

What mode did you use for the Tern and Gull in flight shots?  Exposure of the birds against the bright sky is just about perfect. To get that result I usually shoot M-mode, or S-mode with up to +1 EV.

Re: Koel female

Hi Sanjay

down here on the SE coast of Australia the Koels target a number of species, but most commonly in my area it's our Wattle Birds which are not much bigger than the common Myna. The size difference between young Koel and the host parents is significant and it takes all of the parent bird's efforts to  feed the koel, which all the while squawks and howls  to the point where people are looking up into the trees wondering what's being murdered up there. I haven't heard one for a few weeks so it seems that they are finished until next summer.

Re: Waterbirds from India

Thanks for the kind comments Peter.I always shoot in the Manual mode though some friends have advised me to use the aperture priority mode but I have found the use of the manual mode much to my liking.Thanks for watching and commenting.
