Chicks a lot!
4

Visiting our pond today gave us good opportunities to shoot Mute Swan cygnets, very young GoldenEyes, teenage Coots, and nine tiny Mallard chicks!

Mammy GoldenEye with her five Golden Eyelets?!

Six sleeping Mute Cygnets.

Mommy Mallard with some of her nine ducklings!

Mummy and Daddy Coot with their two youngsters soon as big as the parents!

Our eldest daughter's two cats.  Brought the V1 and the 30-110 when visiting.

Re: Chicks a lot!

The Goldeneye shot is terrific! I only know the species here in the US from winter - it was fairly common in NJ but never close to shore, and here in AZ it is very uncommon.

After getting inspired by all the lockdown pics in this forum
1

Had picked up the V1 again and got a J4 for cheap

I am liking the J4, it's responsive, seems to focus faster, it writes to card really fast - and no image review!!

J4 walkabouts

Rolling hills

Black black cows

Back yard birbing attempts

Neighbor's Sparrow , J4 30-110 with Oly x 1.7 telecon - no crop

Tui at dawn, V1 high iso 30-110 with Oly x 1.7 telecon - no crop

Lovely shots, just like we all would love to shoot!

Tell us more about that Oly telecon! Pictures of it maybe?!

Just playing around today I decided to see how the J5 works for selfies. I didn't realize that flipping the rear screen up invokes changes to settings unless you have forbidden that in a buried menu item. So this was shot in jpeg fine instead of my usual raw format. But I must say the IQ from jpeg is quite nice. I've trimmed a little off the left and converted to B&W.

Note - the framing is tight on purpose - it keeps my shiny crown and my sagging howls out of the image! 18.5/1.8 at less than arms length.

Re: After getting inspired by all the lockdown pics in this forum

Cheers Tord, it's high praise coming from you!!

Im using a Olympus C180 teleconverter (1.7x) with a 40.5 to 52mm stepup ring - as  suggested by members of this forum.  It makes for a relatively cheap boost to the range

It's quite light, so it usually lives on my 30-110.

It vignettes on the short end, but is ok on the long.

Here's a picture for size reference

My wife has the Oly A-200 converter somewhere ;-)!

Will keep an eye out for a C180!

Shot with my Nikon 1 J5 and 10-30mm lens. The NEF image was simply processed in PS RAW editor.

cheers, this one does it most sunny nights at the same spot around the same time, it preens, has a good scratch then goes into full angel mode for an 30/40 minutes, best of all it does it in a pool next to the house so i only have to walk about 30 metres
