Great images, perfect timing, Kevin. Are these perfectly timed single shots with flash or can you do bursts with your flash set up?

hi vickie, only one shot mode, no burst. just rinse and repeat, point and pray.

Fine shot of a great bird, Luego. I think that may be the first time a ZR1 shot has appeared on this thread?

Thank you very much, Vickie. I have posted other pics in the past, but an oldie like the ZR1 doesn't always get the respect...;-)

Cheers,

Luego

Re: Glossy Ibis

Nice serie and story, Winnie.

Very strong light, it's difficult to shoot in these condition but you managed it very well.

Take care

Thanks for your kind comments, Rodger. Perhaps overcast and the old CCD sensor of the ZR1 contributed to the "subdued colours."

Cheers,

Luego

Cropped this one a bit. Spotted in a park in distant tree:

Had to pull some shadow with spotmeter/focus.

thanks all

winnie, I think most of these were on lunch time walks. I really have some nice areas near home and work to explore.

vickie, he stayed still just long enough.... and there were ruby crowed around too but none of them came out, usually just a gray blur. lots o deletes!
