Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I photographed my first presentable Bittern on Friday. I managed about 10 shots in the less than a minute he showed from the reeds. I posted three shots and a nice Robin (four pictures in all) on my Flickr page. Today all four have been taken up in Explore (sort of picture of the day spot) and I am getting all sorts of nice comments.

I can't post them here as that was my C**** and 100-400. I did have Olympus kit with me but the appearance was so brief I didn't get the chance to swap. Not sure the 40-150 and teleconverter would have got as close but i'd like to have had 5 minutes to try.

But I am so thrilled to get a shot at a Bittern, and four shots in Explore too. I just wanted to share it with Ron and the other bird enthusiasts.



best wishes

Peter

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Hi Peter. I noticed these on your Flickr page yesterday. Very nice! It is always exciting to see a Bittern, especially one this showy. I'm glad to see you still have some Olympus gear but I don't quite see how it fits in with your new camera and the Canon. Hopefully you will still be able to post some shots here from time to time. Congratulations on Explore, although it is all a bit of a mystery to me.

Ron

Woodcock
I haven't seen one of these before and when it kindly posed on the other side of the river I managed a couple of shots before it flew off into the trees.
There was also a Coot in the area, but I wasn't quick enough to get a shot of that!
I am glad I went to the trouble of taking the 'big lens' with me on the dog walk.

Also posted in Foto Fair.

One for Ron. Knowing you are interested. First day out.


Summer Leys Geese
Olympus 75-300mm at 300mm with G9

I always liked the 75-300 I'm sure the 300mm would be nicer at 300mm but not too shabby.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

That looks very good Peter. Was it taken using SAF or CAF? I think the 75-300 is a great lens for the price and definitely much easier to carry than the much more expensive alternatives.
