Re: More Interest in M4/3 Recently?

A lot of the birders near me are into digiscoping. They already own nice Swarovski scopes and most of them seem to use m4/3 cameras as the (expensive) Swarovski adapters are readily available. The...

More Interest in M4/3 Recently?

I have noticed that recently there seems to be more interest in m4/3 equipment from users of other formats, especially from bird and wildlife photographers.

Re: Kinglets at close range

Wonderful images of these tiny birds Tord. It is hard to pick a favourite as they are all good.

I saw one with a really bright orange crest in the middle of a tit flock yesterday but it was too...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Excellent shots of a great bird Phill. I assume they were taken with the 40-150 f2.8 and MC-20?

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I am not very good at identifying dragonflies but I think this is a male Migrant Hawker. If anyone thinks otherwise I am willing to be corrected. :)

Hello Deer!

An uncropped shot of a very confiding young Chinese Water Deer at Strumpshaw Fen. This one obviously hadn't read the deer behaviour handbook.

E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

Re: Trials of being a Kingfisher

Many thanks for your kind comments Keith, OM and Mark and for all your 'likes'.

When I first looked at the sixth photo I thought that the Kingfisher had found some discarded fishing tackle. I was...

Trials of being a Kingfisher

It was bright and breezy at Strumpshaw Fen yesterday and I watched this Kingfisher perched on a post being buffeted by the wind. After about ten minutes it suddenly dived and returned with a long...

Re: Whinchats

Thanks Peter. They were perching on the old net drying posts in north Lowestoft, which are disintegrating fast, so there are plenty of old rusty nails. I have a feeling that they won't be there for...

Whinchats

Autumn migration is underway now and a few migrant birds have been turning up locally. I missed out on the Pied Flycatchers a few days ago, as I was otherwise engaged, but today I managed to find...

Re: A Day at the Seaside

A super set from a place that I know well Martin. For some unfathomable reason that shell sculpture came in for a lot of criticism when it was installed, being referred to as an eyesore. At the same...

Re: Hummingbird Hawk Moth

Wonderful shots Dave. I have got some Hardy Plumbago in my garden too. I have seen loads of butterflies on it but no Hummingbird Hawk Moths.

Re: E-M1X 1999 at LCE

LCE group are approved Olympus dealers and the camera comes with a five year warranty. 1999 is a very good price but the camera is not for me at any price.

Re: Bird ID Please?

I think you are right again Iain. I didn't notice that the shots were taken at different times, so I just went by the larger last one. So one bird has now become three?

Re: Bird ID Please?

I agree with Iain. The second bird is definitely an Osprey and the diamond shaped tail makes the first one a Raven for me. Two great birds OM.

Re: Shorebirds

Lovely shots in beautiful golden light Tord. You get some excellent results with your portable hide. I am not good at identifying waders as I don't see them frequently enough to hone my ID skills.

Re: Looking for Love

Thanks Mark. Birds like this do have the habit of dropping down into the reeds as soon as they spot the camera being raised. However, this one was desperate to be seen by other Sedge Warblers and was...
