Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

hi Ron

It is fun to be able to get grab shots and keep the memory. For a long while I stopped trying as the sluggish focus was hopeless, but now with the ability to get a good record I enjoy seeing quick glimpses and getting similar. Glad you are with your system too.

I look forward to Kingfishers in flight!

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Not sure if i have seen Greenshank on masse, lovely against the darks.

Sadly seems sharper on Flickr. I guess it is the wonders of the Internet playing with the electrons....

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

While driving in heavy rain through the Montsia Mountains in Catlunya this morning I turned a corner to see this Golden Eagle perched in a roadside fir tree.
Was able to grab three shots before having to move for traffic.

I saw my first Redwings of the autumn today. They were rather wary and there was no cover to hide behind, so this quite a large crop.

Interesting, we've still got summer species around. There's at least eight Dark-eyed Juncos in view as I type this. I had two Monarch Butterflies heading south, which seems awfully late and a pair of Dragonflies mating today.

Red Grouse


I came across her whilst walking near Whinstone Lee Tor above Ladybower Reservoir. She continued to drink for several minutes - apparently unperturbed by my proximity.

This was taken with the 12-100 lens.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Can't be Famous - that's a 'he'. So is it the Infamous Grouse, the Notorious Grouse, or the Duck or Grouse?

I do like it; shame her head is in shadow though. Looks, er, well fed. You were lucky to spot and catch that!
