Magpie

Got this on walk back from sports day. Magpie just sat on fence. Got a lot of rear views but this was the best. Flew off but I was not fast enough to catch it in flight.
EM1 2 150mm Pro +1.4 converter, Pro Capture, 1/500 f5.6 400 iso.

Re: Magpie

Nice shot. The ones around here are so skittish that I’ve never managed a decent picture. They get a lot of deserved bad press but are beautiful creatures.

Totally agree, they are very under-appreciated birds with a lot of character.

Another shot of the same bird.
I had the camera on Pro capture, took over 790 shots that day, lots of this bird as I got closer to it, missed this one which I prefer.

Re: Magpie

Lovely shots. I'd say the second has the edge due to its smoother Bokeh.

Agreed. Don't know why bokeh is better as aperture was 6.3 for second, 5.6 for the first.
