A different perspective

By reversing the gimbalhead (upside down) a nice perspective can be achieved bringing lens almost to the subject level. Thanks to the tiltable LCD panning and focusing is feasible. Had the shore had a different topology I could had shot from even lower perspective, but as it was the camera body is almost resting on the sandy/muddy bank.

These are with taken with the TS102 scope (700mm / F6.8)

The Mergansers are so difficult to come close, their comfort zone was around 75 meters to I added the EC14. Some air distortion has impacted the IQ, but still I think it deserves to be shared.

The Coot and the greedy Red-necked Grebe are full frames.

Thanks for looking,

#1 Greedy Red-necked Grebe. He somehow managed to swallow the Perch, but it was hard work. The female is lying on their eggs in a reed bed nearby.

#2 Coot having a snack between fights, so I think it is a male.

#3 Couple of Red-breasted Mergansers on their Sunday swim.
