For The Birds !

Recommended Posts

A Willy Wagtail, only had a 18/55 lens on. No time to change and put the 75/330 on. Real pity, there were two and only 5 metres away.

Couldn't crop it down further, bad enough as it is.

Nonetheless a very crisp shot!

 

I have a version 1 500/f4 IS sitting in my dry cabinet longing to be taken out but at my age I find it increasingly strenuous to lug this bazooka around. Instead I now prefer the light weight 400/5.6 for doing trails and a 300/2.8 for hide work.

 

If anyone is interested please PM me for the 500/4.

Same with me!  I have the 500 and it sits most of the time now. I am using a 400mm lens also.  

Damn gravity.... haha

Oriental Magpie-robin. One of the most common garden birds in Thailand so you should get another chance at better pics.

Maybe with some bird seed on the chicken's head ...

Can anyone help me identify this one.Difficult to get a photo, it never stays still

Yeah it's a warbler and unlike The States where they were my passion...here they are frustratingly similar, especially when fresh or worn plumage can play a major factor. Range and season also come into play. Sometimes IMO unless an expert with bird-in-hand, impossible to ID with certainty.

 

Check out Dusky, Buff-throated, Yellow-streaked and Raddes for starters. Chok dee!

Not sure, what these are, seem to small for seagulls... Terns perhaps?

Not easy shots being in a Kayak!
