This morning I go out to get the paper and my Heron friend swoops down and wants me to help him fish again. So I go in and get my 7D and 100-400L and a loaf of bread. We try about 5 minutes with no luck and then this brown heron lands on the opposite canal bank. This brown heron only comes around occasionally and she usually chases off my black heron friend (so they are either enemies or married :o). After a minute, the black heron takes off soon followed by the brown heron. So I feed the 2 nesting Moorhens that have taken up residence here. They have gone through 3 different nests and have had to abandon them for one reason or another. I happen to be there when they exchange places on the current nest and discover they have 6 eggs incubating. I hope they hatch and I can get some photos of baby Moorhens. I'm worried because Herons eat baby chicks.

Some shots from this morning. Sorry, but it was 3 hours after sunrise and I was looking into the sun direction (couldn't be avoided). Thanks for looking and constructive comments welcomed. :)

Hi Guys,

I am new to the forum and this is my first post.
This is one of the friendly Rainbow Lorikeets that frequent the apple trees at the back of my work. I shot this on my 7D with my old ef-s 55-250mm kit lens. I hope you like it.

Continuing on the birds without feet theme  :)
Oh! This is not cropped! Not modified! Straight out of camera RAW converted to jpg in DPP. Then resized in XnView. I could enter it into a NatGeo competition! Do they do one for birds without feet? I mean it is a unique category! I have a few for birds without heads too if they do that ;)



Models should follow the given script. I mean could he not see that I had the 1.4x multiplier on and it was not just the 100-400L?  >:(

I4H, Renegade, strikerwy, knkedlaya, Omar and many more, Thank you for sharing. It helps me get off my back end and look for pictures. It is another matter that I may not get what I hoped for, but every so often something lands in my lap - or should I say that a whole load of photons collide with my camera's sensor and form a picture that I was hoping for. What are the chances? Probability? Parallel universes? whatever...

Later, I add a copyright notice. Makes sense doesn't it? We humans rule the universes and more...

LOL :)
BIF=birds in flight
BWF=birds without feet ;D

Two years ago while on vacation in Nice,France we went to a small family run restaurant in the old town. The featured special was "Alouettes sans tete". We didn't speak French so we asked the waiter (who spoke some English) what was the translation. He hunted for the right phrase and finally said "little bird without head". We ordered it and it was good. It is really stuffed beef rolls.
