All nice, but love to get that close to Golden Plover. Best I see is the aerial displays here. Excellent work.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

This is the first time since getting the 300mm f4 that a zoom might have been useful. Being too close to a Pintail is not usually a problem but, try as I might, I couldn't get this one to fit, so a head shot it had to be.

E-M1 II and 300mm f4.

That is just why I have always bought the zooms but 90% of the time use them at full stretch. I had a number of times when I used the 300mm for a day that I wanted to zoom it. But the quality is better.

Have you tried turning it to portrait taking two side by side and stitching them?

But I'll take you word it is a pintail...even without the tail showing

Nice duck shot.

It's a Brambling Dave - a female, I think. A smashing bird and a very nice shot.
