Sounds like a good name for a bar/restaurant. There's a "Lazy Flamingo" in Sanibel, Florida (but you have to go further south to actually see flamingos).

nicely captured images.

Rather unfortunately, i could only manage one shot of this bird and it was a "bum shot". Sigh.

Thanks Swip - that one is my favourite too, but as often happens the Flickrverse seems to think otherwise. We haven't had any decent light since I took those shots until today. After a couple of cold nights and five inches of snow I wouldn't be surprised if the pond is frozen over now.

Australian fig bird. Vario Elmar 100~400mm @ 400mm, hand-held, cropped (about 75% of the area of the original image removed). My evaluation of this lens: if you don't crop the IQ @ 400mm is very good but not outstanding, it will withstand some cropping but the shortfalls of the lens begin to show, considering the focal range it covers, and the fact that in effect you can hand-hold the equivalent of an 800mm lens on FF, it really is a winner for carry-about wildlife photography.

At PF sizes, it looks pretty good.

It is amateur hour here!
55-300PLM just arrived.
Yard birds don't wait for old codgers, so here are my first efforts. (in spite of the birds not hanging around).
House Sparrow @210mm cropped to about 10% of original
Magpie Lark @300mm cropped to 15% of original
Red-browed Finch @210mm cropped to 5% of the original !!!

Next time; wait with lens out to 300mm from the start. (5% doesn't do a pretty bird justice)

Not bad for 5%. You folks with the PLM are increasing my LBA no end.
