Title: Birds with attitude
Post by: itsnotmeyouknow on April 16, 2012, 10:33:39 PM
I don't often take photos of birds, but I have seen lots of character in a wide range of birds today from Ducks to Ravens to Robins.  A lot of birds by Windermere are getting rather 'frisky'  and some poor female ducks are getting jumped by 6 drakes at a time! Sorry there's so many but I actually really like these!  They are all taken with my 100mm macro lens which is SOO sharp!

Instead they are waiting to be fed by people.  The local stores in North West (South) Korea - (the locals don't call it South Korea, just Korea) sell fish sticks to feed the gulls, although they are much less aggressive than the ones to be found on UK beaches.

The first is similar to a grey heron, but I know there are other very similar species, which could fit better. The second looks like a great white egret.

They're actually jackdaws and quite typical of their behaviour. The grey head and pale blue eyes are the giveaway. Ravens are also much larger and tend to be found in more upland areas (at least during spring and summer).

The 7D has come in handy as it gives me better reach, plus 10 fps can be very useful, especially with birds that don't hang about long.  Managed to get a little story together out of some of them: (all with 7D and 180 macro)

First a blackbird:

Then along came a family of tits - either blue tits or crested tits - I suspect blue:

Here's the mother:

(pity I cut the tail off, but more to help with species identification as I'm not usually a birder)

Here is my favorite "bird with attitude" picture. Just imagine him saying "you talking to me, punk?!"

The 7D has come in handy as it gives me better reach, plus 10 fps can be very useful, especially with birds that don't hang about long.  Managed to get a little story together out of some of them: (all with 7D and 180 macro)

First a blackbird:

Canon 7D EF 180 f/3.5L macro at f/5.6 and 1/80 ISO 500

(http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8155/7446688452_06af882bfd_b.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/singingsnapper/7446688452/)

f/5.6 1/320 ISO 500: the blackbird's been at the chocolate cake!

and peeking through the bars

f/5.6 1/125 ISO 400

Then along came a family of tits - either blue tits or crested tits - I suspect blue:

Here's the mother:

(pity I cut the tail off, but more to help with species identification as I'm not usually a birder)

f/5.6 1/1000 ISO 500

They're blue tits, you'll only see crested tits in pine woodland, unless you garden backs onto pine woods and you're really lucky.

Yep, we get a few different types, sometimes I suspect cross-breeding due to the way some will look like
other species, not sure if that happens or not. Which Cafe is that? I know a few Pubs and Hotels where
they are very tame/cheeky. Going for 2 weeks in September.

It's chesters by the river at skelwith bridge about 3 miles away from Ambleside on the Coniston road. It's just Ambleside side of the bridge itself. Have been going there for years. The food is excellent there they've just installed a wood burning stove which they use for pizza, pitta and bread. They are famous for their cakes too. There used to be a kirkstone and brathay blue stone workshop right by it but the banks foreclosed and they went out of business. Plenty to see and photograph in the area. Get there before 3 for hot food and loiter around- they have outside seating area and open til 5 the birds become more timid once the crowds die down. When there aren't many people around you'll see birds on the matte metal tables robins in particular. I usually put a few crumbs on a neighbouring table. I'm a regular there and been going there for 15 years.

OK we know Chesters, as we usually stay in Chapel Stile. By the time we hit there on the way back from a hike I'm too
tired to get the Camera out though.

Arctic Terns at the Isle of May reserve just off the coast of Anstruther in Fife, Scotland.

The boat slipway is surrounded by the Terns nesting grounds, and on this visit the chicks had just hatched, so the usually benign terns were very aggressive.

We were warned to wear a hat and carry a tripod or similar over our heads so that they attack that rather than us, as they could draw blood.

However they also poo on you, I took an allergic reaction and had eyes like golf balls on sticks for a while after.

Thankfully Anstruther boasts the best fish and chips shop in the UK, so a wee smoked kipper supper helped to soothe the pain.

Great place to get all up close with puffins, if thats your thing.

Am in Klagenfurt, South Eastern Austria at the moment and Hired a car today and took an afternoon drive down to the western end of Wörthersee to a town call Velden am Wörthersee. The weather cheered up after a few hours (we had major thunderstorms in the area which only abated when I got my camera out on a tripod on the balcony of my hotel room ready to put it on bulb - a camera shy storm whatever next!).  Sat down awhile at the shores of the lake.  The water is clear and as many alpine lakes are, a unique colour, but this one is at the moment verify warm - 27 degrees (81F). 

Sat down a while and a family of sparrows came over looking for food.

It's actually a male chaffinch and they often display that sort of behaviour in public areas, they can be quite bold, sitting on chair backs and chirping to be fed. Nicely captured.

Thanks!
I hope nobody will take those posts with explanation as flooding the thread :-)

Unfortunately I have to dissapoint you - there is a lot of PP in DPP (I don't think Lightroom would do it any better) and the original photo looks very very bad.

First of all this photo is one of four in a row, which were made in continuous mode with the use of AI Servo (the rest of them included below). The camera was 5d2, 70-200 F/4 L IS @200mm, 1/1500s, F4, ISO 400. It was cloudy, 4PM in Poland two days ago, the sun about 30 degrees to the left of the duck straight ahead. So it was almost behind the duck.


Title: Re: Birds with attitude
Post by: marekjoz on August 19, 2012, 06:08:28 PM
The photo is heavily cropped. Below there is a full frame of this photo.

There was a lot PP in DPP. Settings used you will find below as well (+DLO +NR). The photos without editing are also included. As you can see they are so ugly, that I wouldn't bother working on them if I wouldn't like the scene which I witnessed.
Title: Re: Birds with attitude
Post by: marekjoz on August 19, 2012, 06:11:25 PM
The other thing is how many wonderful shots I missed there because of focus missing, light, shutter speed... In short - lack of 5D3 :-)
Below - what I think I could have if there was another "I" in the camera name... And this is just a small set of bad photos made on this day.
Title: Re: Birds with attitude
Post by: marekjoz on August 19, 2012, 06:20:25 PM
Here is some boring list of all camera settings:
Camera Model   Canon EOS 5D Mark II | Firmware   Firmware Version 2.1.2 | Shooting Mode   Manual Exposure | Tv( Shutter Speed )   1/1500 | Av( Aperture Value )   4.0 | Metering Mode   Evaluative Metering | ISO Speed   400 | Auto ISO Speed   OFF | Lens   EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM | Focal Length   200.0mm | Image Quality   RAW | Flash   Off | FE lock   OFF | White Balance Mode   Auto | AF Mode   AI Servo AF | AF Microadjustment   0 | Picture Style   Standard | Highlight tone priority   0:Disable | Auto Lighting Optimizer   0:Standard | Peripheral illumination correction   Enable | Dust Delete Data   No | Drive Mode   Continuous shooting | Live View Shooting   OFF
AFMA set to zero after Focal.

Another thing is to make ducks landing such a beautiful way. It was tricky. If you throw some bread to the water, where there are plenty of them, they start to get it first. If they see they can get them faster than other ducks, they fly and land...

Sorry for so many posts in this thread. Below some other shots I made on this day, where I find birds with attitude as well :-)

Post by: verysimplejason on September 06, 2012, 03:44:29 AM
Those bird shots are shot using 500D and 55-250 IS.  I want a 70-200L but I think I'll stay with my current lens lineup.  I can't just buy lens.  My wife will certainly kick me out of our house.   :)  Kidding aside, I'm targeting a 17-40L lens next.  Hopefully I'll get them early next year.  After that hopefully it's a full frame finally.  I'm not in a hurry to buy since I'm still learning and it takes me a lot of time to save.

Attitude enough?
Image made today morning.
Last week these Mynah birds were at each others blood, in what seemed like a brutal fight (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=1280.1275 (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=1280.1275)) ... looks like their last week's fight kinda mellowed them down a bit ... today they weren't fighting, they were just trying to "stare down" and intimidate each other. Last week i thought one of them would die, nice to see they survived.

I am not sure if this is the type of attitude that you are after, but this Sulphur Crested Cockatoo was certainly giving passers by a lot of attitude by swearing at them.
I am not a fan of birds in small cages, and this guy would normally have a much larger aviary to fly around in but he was being quarantined in a small cage after getting a treatment from the vet, and he was not happy about it.
