I really like your shots mikio, especially the Heron, it's unusual to see a Heron on a wire like this.

Thanks. But this picture was taken at a fish pond and there a lot of birds, including herons, prefer the wires just above the water.

Cool.  8)  I never got the chance to see those kinds of birds on a wire. Thanks for sharing.  :)

Hello,
this is my first post on the forum...
Here's a young swan from two months ago. Quite a boring and over-shot species but a picture that I am personally happy with.

Great shot! Now I know where they got the name for that 1990 Mel Gibson movie. ;D

Hi Milvus.
Nice shot, still looks like a cygnet but has lost the muddy grey down replaced with white, I keep missing this phase at our local pond! Nice first post, welcome.

Cheers Graham.

Just returned from the worst boat trip ever to see puffins from Peggy's Cove. The tiny vessel rocked so much in the waves that we couldn't stand up and one poor guy kept vomiting over the side. The captain briefly approached to within 100-120 metres to one part of the island and quickly turned back, within about 4 or 5 minutes. My wife couldn't use her binoculars because of the violent motion of the boat. I asked if we were going to do a circuit of the island and was told that nothing was to be seen the other side. Yet, when I checked Tripadvisor afterwards one delighted tripper wrote how they had circuited the island so the photographers could get every angle! I pointed the 5DIII plus Tamron at 600mm in the rough directions of the bird dots in the distance and fired at random at high speed. Surprisingly, I got some usable shots. The puffins occupy only about 150-200 pixels square of the image.
