I went out in the rain yesterday to photograph birds in Kowloon Park. There wasn't much around when I got there and I almost left. I'm glad I persevered though, as there was lots to see when the weather let up. All of these were taken with my K1 ii with DA*300:

Black-crowned night heron:

Greater coucal (juvenile) - I think:

Common tailorbird:

Masked laughingthrush:

Oriental magpie robin (juvenile):

Thanks for hosting, nosliwmit.

These two images of great egrets (of which there were 90) were captured in the evening at a wetland in Midland County, Michigan with a monopod-mounted Pentax K-S2.

The top photo's lens and settings: smcPentax DAL 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm AL at 50mm f5.6 1/100 ISO 1250

The second photo: Tokina 500mm f8 RMC 500mm mirror lens at
1/30 ISO1600

I really like the high key look here. And the blue and green on your second photo go great together. Maybe even crop out the right edge?

Wow! That's a lot of egrets. I see lots of them when I visit Florida (most summers, but not this year!) and we have them in Hong Kong too. Beautiful birds.

I'm going to start POTW #608 now. Thanks again for participating!
