Some bigger 'Birds' than my usual. K3 DA*300.

A flypast at 90 metres with me at the top of a 20 metre cliff.

Funny, the last birds I shot there were Superb Fairy-wrens about 4 inches long and weighing half an ounce.
I find the second of the two very, very good indeed. Were you wearing effective ear protectors?

No, I didn't think of it. Noise was pretty low, they were flying over some pretty expensive areas so noise abatement was probably a priority.

First sighting at 17km (a tad over 10 miles):

I'm guessing over Elwood Beach so 8km with AF locked on church at 1.5km:

300mm is getting too long:

Closest approach, a few hundred metres, 300mm is certainly too long:

Birth of a fawn

I was lucky today to witness this birth, and be in a position to photograph it. I usually see only before and after......From start to finish the birth took 1 hour, 15 minutes...

Redheads don't often come in close so I took a few shots while I waited a while for this one to pop its head up. Now I think I prefer the shot with its head tucked in.

I prefer the first head tuck as well, but part of the reason has to be the reflection without the wake in the second. Both are excellent images.

Thanks Albert. The duck had built up a head of steam by the time I took the second shot.

Cool it was so close! Indeed, I saw one yesterday, and it was 500 ft away (at least) and backlit... so no can do here!
congrats!

Thanks Weevil - that's the closest Redhead shot I have had. If ever you are in Toronto in winter the waterfront trail leading west from Humber Bay West Park is good for the odd close-up lake duck among the Mallards. I get a lot of my shots from Humber Bay East Park as well.

Zztieg - was that a Marsh Tit you slipped in up there? Great set.
