Hi Folks.
Lots of great shots from all the usual suspects and a new (ish) chap with N gear! :) But then its not the gear that counts but the photos and that he shares them here from choice. 👍
A few of a Kingfisher, not superb shots, not even good shots by forum standards, but my first shots of a Kingfisher and I’m chuffed to nuts with them!
The outing didn’t start well as I discovered I forgot my Black Rapid Strap when I parked the car, then after walking best part of a mile to the Hide carrying a 100-400 with gripped body by my fingertips I found I had left my 1.4x converter in the car, hence the tiny images of the bird!

Graham, thanks for the kind words!
You say "But then its not the gear that counts but the photos..." - and I agree. But even when I get home without photos I'm pretty sure that I spent my (free) time better than just somewhere in the town. And I'm very sure it's not only me like that in this forum!
Today I spent a lot of time chasing Grey Francolin (I still do not have good picture of these) and didn't see it. Come back with pics that could be good for "plants"/"insects" discussions but not birds :). Still it was nice relaxation. Tomorrow - again! Monday back to work despite the long weekend here - have to :-\
I will post some older photos - just to keep it going.

Hi ISv.
I highlighted a section, of your post, I agree completely with this sentiment and my photobuddies and I will often say no photos but a good walk with good company!  :)
Good luck chasing the Grey Frankolin.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi,

The arctic finches have been flooding into Wisconsin this year, and for the first time since 2011, I have Common Redpolls at my house! I even was lucky enough to get a Hoary Redpoll. These were shot with 7D mkii / ef500 f4 / 1.4xiii.
