Target aquired!

It's nice when a plan comes together especially when it involves an elusive target.

Right time of year, in an area where I saw them last year and where I heard one last Thursday:

Sacred Kingfisher. K3, DA*300 + Tamron-F 1.4 TC and a lot of luck.

100% crops.

Backyard hawk in Park City. K-1 and DFA 150-450 handheld. Tricky focusing through all the branches. Probably should have used manual focus.

Our floating bridge duck viewing spot was noisy today - Trumpeter Swans trumpeting, and Long-tailed Ducks calling, skittering across the water, and diving and surfacing (sometimes popping up on the other side of the bridge) a dozen or so at a time. The Ducks are back from the Arctic to spend the winter on the Great Lakes.


Great shots.


I am coming down to TO this weekend. Hopefully they will still be around.

Thanks, but more good luck than good management I think...and generous amounts of PP :-)
These birds are notoriously difficult to get good detail with such dark plumage and looking at the unlit underside, against bright sky.
This is one shot of many that I am quite pleased with.

Cheers,
Terry
