Re: BIF's and birds recently. Kingfisher, Herons, Harriers, etc

Excellent series. Love the kingfisher shots, the 1st one is superb. I have trouble capturing Sacred Kingfishers let alone with prey, very well done.

Re: Quetzal!

Well done. I was fortunate to see one and yes they are resplendent.

I'm always envious of great Kingfisher shots. Kingfishers with their incredible eye sight are my birding nemesis  Great series.

Re: Great Blue Herons

Beautiful Richard, we only have the white faced Heron here, so always great to see what others have. Fine shots.

Re: Crested Turns at rest

I'm a bit of a sucker for Terns, love taking photos of them, so these are great to see. Well done and nice close shots with good details.

Re: Killdeer, Sharp Shinned Hawk, American Robin and Great Blue Heron.

Nice set Bob.  Like the heron in the nest image.  Have not seen any killdeer yet this year.  It is snowing as I type this so still cold!

Re: A few from local billabong.

Maybe the car should break down more often Dennis   Darn good shots and well worth the walk. Fascinating in what you have there in Aussie.

If you ever get a chance to visit Darwin, check out "Fogg Dam", just stunning !!! A birders heaven mate.

All the best Dennis.

Love the variety of birds you have, we tend to miss out on a lot here, so I always love seeing shots like this. Wonderful shots and just love that Robin.

All the best and nicely done.

A Trio of Birds from Today with the E-1

A trio of Birds from today.  Each were quite some distance from the camera and are therefore cropped.  The woodpecker was way up in the tree, and I could not get anywhere without a branch or twig getting in the way.  All were shot with the ZD 50-200 mm lens.

Here are a few photos of a Royal Tern bathing and preening at Fort DeSoto County Park--on Christmas Eve 2012. I had rented a Canon 100-400 IS lens to try out, and was pleased to capture this behavior. All shots are hand-held:

Royal Tern--conducting!

Royal Tern--conducting Stravinsky?

Royal Tern--requesting Pianissimo

Royal Tern--conducting John Adams' Dr. Atomic

Very nice wing positions and the last one is a classic All very nicely taken.
