  • Thanks Peter. I've been wondering about Milt as well. None of us are getting any younger. Yes these were with the 200-500 Nikon. Last year it was time to update the E-30. Since all of my 4/3rds ...
  • Thank you Peter. I've been very concerned about Richard's absence. I hope everything is OK with him. I've been posting intermittently here since 2005 when I bought the E-300 and even though I've ...
  • Nice shots Ken. I think your hawk is a juvenile Harris hawk but I'm not real great with raptor IDs. Zanjero park in Gilbert also has some relocated burrowing owls. It's a man made thing so they ...
  • Nice shots Ken. As you noted in your reply to my egret post there is less water this winter. The warmer temperatures have more of the reclaimed water being used for landscape irrigation reducing ...
  • Thanks Denjw, it was quite a sight.
  • Thanks Ron. It definitely wasn't a loving courtship. As far as siblings playing they were at least last years births, too early for them to be this big for this years fledges. It looks like DP ...
  • Thank you for the comments all. I agree, the last shot with the wing dip was my favorite of the batch too.
  • And he was still intent on chasing the other one. He actually chased him around the pond several times. That was one P.O'd bird.
  • Also taken at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve in November. Broken into two parts to keep it to 5 photos per post. I've seen the egrets get feisty with each other but I've never seen them get this ...
  • A few taken in November. A good day.
  • Replied in C.R.I.S.
    When I dropped my E-30 with Bigma attached off of the tripod Oly was still repairing cameras so I sent the body to them. The mount on the Bigma was also bent so I took it to these people: https://w ...
  • Thanks. That shot is now in my top shots list.
  • Thanks. During the first review that one jumped out at me too. It's now one of my best Egret shots.
  • Great shots Dennis. Those Fairy Wrens are some of the prettiest birds I've ever seen. Only on the internet of course, we don't have anything that pretty in the desert.
  • Part Deux. Time to escape to the air again. Here we go again He (she?) gave me an awesome fly by this time. Here you go Mr. photographer Another landing to dine in peace. Alone at last Nope. Awww, ...
  • Taken November 5th at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve in Arizona. Split into two parts to keep to the rules of 5-6 photos per post. This is actually a shortened version of how long the sequence ...
  • I'll second what Jim says. I shot with the Oly 4/3rds system for 12 years starting with the E300 and ending with the E30. In each iteration Oly promised us that the CAF was greatly improved. I ...
  • Summer may be over but fall does not want to let us go. We were still in the low 90's last week and we should be in the 70's. Looks like next week we'll finally get back to normal. Because of that ...
  • Replied in Coopers? Hawk
    I'm pretty sure with the banding on the tail this is a Coopers hawk. Taken back in June in NE Ohio when I was on vacation. They are nesting in my dad's back yard. Finally getting around to posting ...
  • Replied in Acocets
    Taken in March, took me a while to get through them all. I finally had some come up close so I could get good feather detail. The D500 really increased my BIF hit rates I got a bunch of ...
