I have no idea how dark it's there, but the island is not that big - you always could find some dark place. Keep in mind: here you will have problem with the winds for long shots. If you go on top of Haleakala, you will have eventually the darkness (moon?), but also some wind and clouds (it's the rainy season here anyway).

Hi ISv,
good to see that you managed to post your pictures; excellent at it (despite the "N****" equipment ;) 8))!
Looking forward to see more of your Hawaiian birds...
Wiebe.


Hi Wiebe! Thanks for your words. The failed posting was my mistake - I didn't do it properly.
Here are two more pics, and after that I may disappear for today - I may have plenty to do before the weekend.

Thanks Click!
The second one needs some noise reduction in DxO PL :). On other hand I made rather big print (I think it was 20x30") of that one for my apartment (it stays in front of the door when you go inside and we call it the "Guardian" ;D) and it does not show noise. For my needs as an amateur photographer it is good enough. And yes, the sharpness is not as on the firs one (or I made some mistakes in PP - I switch to digital in 2012 :D)!

Thanks Lion rock! All these are very common for Oahu (Maui too!), if you make your way here - for sure you will get them!

Wanna house swap? It's cold and wet here in Vancouver. Hawaii sounds amazing.

The sun was not doing me any favors but I did manage to get a bit of fill in.  -23C so I shot from my window.

I would have said it is a common redpoll!?

Edit: The file name indicates the photographer would agree.

This was another "zoo" environment "guests" were more or less free to roam around.

Thanks click.  The repolls are now here in large numbers due to the cold weather and my seeds.  For anyone not familiar with them they are not too much bigger than a chickadee.  They are a seed machine in action - barely ever a shot not showing a seed or remnant falling.

Nice! I have not seen any redpolls yet this winter over here....

Thanks Don, we're just too far north to get the really good stuff.  Following Artie can make a person depressed - pelicans in full breading plumage etc.  ;)  However, I don't think I'd trade places given that we never seem to get anything too significantly bad other than a few cold days while others are getting disasters.
