Shooting Birds is popular in this forum...
Posted By: Schraubstock, 05-17-2015, 06:07 AM

so I thought I have to give it a go.

In Takayama I came across these women, I pointed my camera at them gesturing that I would like to take a picture. Don't know why, there was no reason.

There was an immediate reaction of encouragement, the result of which can be seen here. I took one shot, we all had a good laugh, I thanked them and went on my way and they went on theirs.

Street photography can be fun.

Here we go with the "Schraubstock Challenge", that Kerrowdown fella just taken a picture of us... I know I can see that.
Crikey, one of the women looks like as if she has just seen your face or else had just lost a tooth and swallowed it.
The one with the glasses looks like a German Brunhilde just about to give you breath limiting squeeze.

I quite sure I don't know what you mean... most Bird images here on the forum seem to involve the use of 300mm.
....and Birds.

If this is the result after using all your charms on unsuspecting females for the purpose of taking a picture, I would say NO.

I just took some images not of birds but roosters and with Spencer and Babe, (that's the K3 and Sigma 500mm.) I'll be posting shots of the 'lads' (wow lingo) soon.
